He is also the author of Boxed In: The Culture of Television, The Bush Dyslexicon: Observations on a National Disorder (Norton), Cruel and Unusual: Bush/Cheney’s New World Order, and has written a play titled A Patriot Act.

In early 2008, Ig will release Miller’s first acquisition, Loser Take All: Election Fraud and the Subversion of Democracy 2000–2008, an anthology about election fraud. Elizabeth Clementson is publisher and Robert Lasner is editor-in-chief.

  1. Well, hell here’s your first query. I think there needs to be an African American atheism book and I’d like to write it! I’m a professional writer with journalism experience at both dailies and weeklies.

    Best examples of my work here:

    Now the bad news is that I would need a small advance in order to complete the book. But I think I could have it to you within six months. I would to read all the atheism best sellers more carefully, plus basic religious texts, plus some more research on black atheists (there are some with Richard Wright immediately springing to mind..). And I would like to concentrate on the writing for about six months. I think this book could be very lucrative and would make your company much needed early revenue…

    If interested contact me at pshropshire at yahoo dot com.

    PS: I also write science fiction! But this book would be easier to write immediately. The arguments are very clear already in my head…
