[New Hampshire Publishing Cooperative]

George Bush Jr. is a war criminal.

Like Son Like Father.

KGB: a novel by former U.S. federal prisoner for peace, Mike Palecek

The prisoners in D Block in the Woodbury County Jail read about the arrest

of General Pinochet, in the one newspaper copy passed around to all the

blocks. They determine that George Bush Sr. is also a war criminal.

These prisoners, the damned of America, scheme how to bring about justice in

these United States.

"KGB is imaginative and and well-written." - Danny Schechter, founder of

Globalvision, one of first producers of CNN, 20/20 producer, two-time Emmy

award winner.

"Fast-paced and suspenseful." - Jill Barrett, Confluence Magazine, St.

Louis.

KGB also recommended by Kate Thompson of the Sioux City Journal.

illegal?" - Author Mike Palecek, former seminarian, Iowa Democratic Party

nominee for U.S. House of Representatives, federal prisoner, reporter.

Palecek lives with his family in a small town in northwest Iowa. He is

employed at a home for the mentally disabled while working on his other

*Also by Palecek:

(3) • "Prophets Without Honor", May 2002, Algora Publishing of

NYC.

[Co-author, William Strabala, former reporter for Denver Post, Rocky

Mountain News]: Prophets Without Honor, non-fiction, Algora Publishing of New York:

"A book to inspire us all, because it looks beyond the false gods of our time, the ruthless political leaders, the timid intellectuals, the stars of People magazine and tells the story of the bravest people in America . - Howard Zinn

By William Strabala and Mike Palecek The book tells the story of a group of American men who happen to be priests who happen to have served decades in American prisons. Darrell Rupiper, Larry Rosebaugh and Carl Kabat are Oblate missionary priests. Frank Cordaro is a diocesan priest from Des Moines . Roy Bourgeois is a Maryknoll priest. Charlie Liteky is an ex-Trinitarian priest

(4) • "Joe Coffee's Revolution", by Badger Books of Madison, Wisconsin: Joseph Coffee runs for Congress in Iowa as a Democrat on an anti-prison, anti-military, pro-Hispanic platform: and the Democratic Party doesn't like it. It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature.

(5) • "Twins": fiction, based in Minneapolis/Saint Paul. Two twin brothers, one a revolutionary priest, the other the warden of the local federal penitentiary, battle in the streets and from the rooftops. It's a sibling rivalry, rich vs. poor, yuppies against the gangs of the ghetto, the Kiwanis Club meets the prison yard weightlifters. It's walleye sizzling in the crisp north woods air and dirty diapers in the gutter. It's food on a stick, a seat on the third-baseline, and halftime mud wrestling between Dorothy Day and Mary Tyler Moore, in this one-of-a-kind American metropolis.

[Badger Books, Madison, Wisc].
