The latest information on three novels from Clipper Media News writer and editor James Porteous
20 March 2023 | James Porteous | Clipper Media News
I would like to invite you to take a moment out of your busy day to check out my two novels and one collection of short fiction.
Each ebook has an Amazon Worldwide link that will allow you to buy any of the books directly from your local online Amazon site.
If you prefer, I sell most of my books directly rather than through an online source, often for a flat-fee for all three.
Please feel free to contact me if this is of interest.
All three books are available specifically for Kindle, Apple, Kobo, Google or a one-size ‘generic’ version.
Please let me know if any of these options are of interest.

And thank you for supporting independent artists around the world.
James Porteous | Clipper Media News
James Porteous worked for over 20 years as a digital librarian and archivist, first with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Toronto and then Al Jazeera English in Washington, DC, and Doha, Qatar.
He is an author, freelance writer, musician, songwriter, photographer, and anti-war and human rights activist.
His latest works include the anti-war saga Got a Revolution? The Last Record Album, a fictional biography of singer/songwriter Bo Carter and the short fiction collection, The Insolent Caretaker.
The Last Record Album
Bo Carter began his career as a singer-songwriter in the tumultuous 1960s, playing folk and rock in Greenwich Village.
During this time, he toured with some of the most renowned names in the music industry, such as The Touts, The Kinks, and even Bob Dylan.
Carter has always been passionate about music and songwriting, and this fictional biography provides a wealth of firsthand knowledge and information about songwriting and life on the road.
The reader also joins Carter while he records his ‘comeback’ album at New York’s renowned Record Plant and consumes a bottle of single malt while trying to write a new song for the latest Robert Altman film.
Links to original songs written by the author of the book are also included.
Got a Revolution?
The Good Lord is weary of nursing His Hapless Humans.
Earth is a small, insignificant, and frankly, otherwise useless part of His vast real estate portfolio.
And now, after decades of war, climate change, and corruption, the wealthiest 1% are preparing to move into The Hawkins Bay Freedom Bunker.
There, they will continue to indulge in their gold, money, and DNA while waiting for the day they can venture out into the pristine atmosphere of New World 2.0.
Meanwhile, Those Left Behind are starting to realize that they have, indeed, been left behind.
Will the ensuing chaos work in Manifesto 99’s favor?
Will Major Stursberg regret not stocking up on Kool-Aid?
Got a war? Got a revolution.
The Insolent Caretaker and Other Stories
These stories explore the diverse and complex lives of everyday people. They delve into themes such as relationships, love, politics, religion, and humor, highlighting the struggles and triumphs of characters who are often overlooked or forgotten.
By combining elements of narrative, dialogue, and description, I wanted to create something that would be both meaningful and enjoyable and to create stories that provide insight and a deeper understanding of the human experience.
The stories are reminiscent of the work of Studs Terkel, a renowned oral historian who captured the voices and stories of ordinary Americans in his writing.
