Duck Billed Platitudes ( 26 Nov. 2017 )

The stuff in this book is not dated.

It is not annotated – and there has been no attempt to put it into any historical or socio-political context.

Why?

Precisely because the vast majority of this stuff is lightweight, hopefully easy to read, and hopefully entertaining. It is a mixture of editorials, some book reviews, and a few feature articles, which have been taken almost at random from stuff that I wrote between 2013 – 2016 in a magazine called Gonzo Weekly, of which I am the founding editor.

If I may quote, somewhat out of context,  Mark Twain:

“Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be prosecuted;

persons attempting to find a moral in it will be banished;

persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot.

BY ORDER OF THE AUTHOR per G.G., CHIEF OF ORDNANCE”.

To which I shall only add that  I hope that it affords you some little amusement.

Hail Eris.

Love and peace.

Jon Downes.
