Popular Parapolitics: Pop Culture Conspiracies

in Paperback
and on Amazon Kindle!

Steamshovel Press editor
Kenn Thomas returns with a collection of writings on conspiracy topics as they have become revealed in, by, and despite the major media.


Pop Culture Conspiracies

includes articles, interviews, and commentary on the many researchers and activists–the “conspiracy theorists”–that have informed the popular debate about hidden histories and secret agendas in popular culture. The book offers a real-deal examination of the people, events, and issues that animate the global conspiracy spectacle.

POPULAR PARAPOLITICS includes “Steamshovel Press #24″, an issue that never appeared on the newsstands and is available only in this volume.

It contains interviews with a top-five list of parapolitical writers and publishers, including Acharya S, author of Christ Conspiracy; Konformist Robert Sterling; Feral House’s Adam Parfrey; Joan D’Arc of PARANOIA Magazine; and Jonathan Vankin, author of The World’s Greatest Conspiracies. Also explored: the role-playing game origins of the Achille Lauro terrorist incident; the fashion crimes of despots by Adam Gorightly; a report on the first Conspiracy Conference by Skylaire Alfvegren; a rare essay by the late, great Jim Keith, author of Mind Control/World Control; and a critique of TV’s faux conspiracy critic, Jessie Ventura.
