is a well researched and lyrically written biographical novel offering first-person stories by the Fuehrer and a variety of other characters. This intimate approach invites the reader to peer into Hitler’s mind, talk to Eva Braun, joust with Goering, Goebbels, and Himmler, debate with the generals, fight on land and at sea and in the air, and huddle in the death camps as, everywhere, civilization is consumed.
Let’s invite many of the greatest boxers, and their contemporaries, to tell their own stories, some true, others tales based on history. Peter Jackson barges into John L. Sullivan’s hotel room to demand a fight. Jim Jeffries regales listeners about his barroom confrontation with Jack Johnson. A bar owner discusses the violent alcoholism of Battling Siki. Jack Dempsey and his detractors hold forth. Sonny Liston stars in three stories. Nelson Mandela boxes Barack Obama. The top 13 heavyweights are identified. Muhammad Ali, Jerry Quarry, Emanuel Steward, Alexis Arguello, Lennox Lewis, and Archie Moore and others also share experiences. They’re frank about their serious business. They know there can always be
Death in the Ring
These satirical columns, written from 2003 to 2009, allow startlingly candid Saddam Hussein and George W. Bush to explain their need to control the destinies of countries, regions, and, ultimately, the world. Osama bin Laden, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Karl Rove, and other notables, not all famous, also demand part of the stage.
In these satirical columns written from 2007 to 2012, Barack Obama offers incisive comments about politics, international relations, the media, drinking and drug taking. John McCain, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and other adversaries respond.

Tales of Romance
, a compilation of short stories and creative columns about relationships between men and women.
In King Donald readers join Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and many others on a raucous ride into a fictional world infused with facts from one of the roughest political races in modern U.S. history. Rubio rips The Donald who insults Megyn Kelly who counterattacks, and the candidates begin battling around the nation for months, and often reveal what they’re thinking but dare not write. They don’t have to. Author George Thomas Clark writes from their points of view, offering satire, humor, and pungent political analysis. Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, Vladimir Putin, and Benjamin Netanyahu also comment on the campaign.
In this collection of thirty-eight chiseled short stories, George Thomas Clark introduces readers to actors, alcoholics, addicts, writers famous and unknown, a general, a lovelorn farmer, a family besieged by cancer, extraterrestrials threatening the world, a couple time traveling back to a critical battle, a deranged husband chasing his wife, and many more memorable people and events.
We wonder what they’re thinking, so we ask Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. And you, Picasso, what are you really like? Vincent van Gogh, please tell us more about your agony and inspiration. We must also learn about distinguished women – Paula Modersohn-Becker, Séraphine Louis, Lee Krasner, Diane Arbus, and others. I know they’ll tell us. So will expressionists like Ernst Ludwig Kirschner and Otto Dix. African American artists are certainly forthcoming. Charles White takes us inside his homes, and William H. Johnson invites us into his mind, a stimulating but often unsafe place. And other painters from Europe and the United States – what are they feeling? We find out as they
Paint It Blue.
In search of stimulating stories, George Thomas Clark interviewed prostitutes in Madrid, Mexico City, Havana, and Managua and on many boulevards in the United States, and talked to detectives and rode the rough roads of social workers who deal with human trafficking, which is contemporary slavery, and toured the tattered, handmade shelters of the homeless and also interviewed them on the streets and in shelters, and conversed with the poor in the United States, Mexico, Ecuador, and Spain, and sometimes used several lives to create composite stories, and even a few tales, and everywhere the author ventured he witnessed struggles of those whose lives are bound
