“Vegan Nation” Has Arrived
Warcry Communications has entered the world of fiction with our sixth book: Vegan Nation – an animal liberation novella by longtime activist Rick Bogle. The book is finally back from the printer and ready to ship.
(Before I start promoting the book, everyone should check out Rick’s blog: Primate Freedom.)
Vegan Nation came out in somewhat limited circulation about 3 years ago. I owned a copy for over a year before reading, and when I did, I knew I wanted to do what I could to give it a wider audience.
Vegan Nation is a novella in the (short) literary tradition of books like Rage and Reason. The book follows an activist as he launches an outlaw campaign to stop animal abusers for good, in a militant effort to spark a vegan revolution.
The story draws from lessons in history, particularly the campaign of abolitionist John Brown. While fictional, Vegan Nation is a cautionary tale of what could happen if animal exploiters continue to refuse dialogue or exercise any restraint in their profit-driven onslaught against non-human animals.
Here is some text from the back cover:
In 1858, Abraham Lincoln stated that slavery would not end for at least a century. In 1859, abolitionist John Brown waged a war of weapons against slaveholders, shortening this time to seven years. He is now recorded in history as “the man who killed slavery”.
Today, animals are killed by the billions for food and science, while activists who lawfully protest this cruelty are vilified and imprisoned as “terrorists”.
In time, those responsible for this violence may very well reap what they have sown.
This is the story of one such future. It is a story of a present-day John Brown, bringing the war against animals home to their abusers – a last recourse that may finally bring about a vegan nation.
I started Warcry because I believe one book is more powerful and motivating than a thousand “website hits”. Thank you for all the support Warcry has received the last year, and to everyone who purchased the titles Warcry has printed in that time: Flaming Arrows, Underground, and now Vegan Nation.
I will be shipping all pre-orders out over the next several days. Order your copy now and (maybe) have it by the weekend.
