Book summaries

I have a vast collection of loony fundie nonsense and other strange religious literature. It ranges from the hate-filled lies which fuelled the Satanic abuse myth of the late 1980s to stuff which is, well, just odd. It's too good just to sit there taking up bookshelf space, and so as a new feature here at the Prattle I'm going to add summaries of the books - what do they claim, information about the author and their influence in the world at large. The first book is one I picked up at a local car boot sale last Sunday - Marc Dem's The Lost Tribes from Outer Space explains that the Jews are really the separate creation of a space alien, JHWH, and he's coming back to take them somewhere better any day now (and destroy the rest of us in the process).

Update, 6th April 2003: These now have their own category and will appear in the Prattle as they are done.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
