Of course Rand's Atlas Shrugged is on the top ten list for Conservative Novels... There is also a little known series of roughly 30 or so books written by William W. Johnstone called the Ashes Series. It was written in the 80s to the early 2000s and was the story of WW3 hitting and a group calling themselves the "rebels" fighting to gain back control of the USA from the thugs, and punks that have sprung up from the ashes of war. The goal of the Rebels in the novel are to run the US under a libertarian government which tends to work out well. I am almost finished with the series. I would suggest reading it for anyone that is into post-apocalyptic, war stories. It does contain very graphic content... as it is a war story. The bad guys in the book are truly bad guys. Has anyone read this series?

Are there any other great conservative novels? Let's gather a good list.

1984 and Animal Farm. The socialists/communists are evil and hypocritical, wanting individualism and classes eliminated for all but themselves, just like modern day libs and moonbats.

"There Will Be Dragons", a John Ringo Sci-Fi/Fantasy novel is about a war 2,000 years from now between two factions of humanity. One who believes in Ultra-Communism, against Conservatives. Guess who the good guys are.;)

I started a series of short stories a couple of years ago. A tongue in cheek series based on the VRWC.

The action begins six days after a series of explosions devastated Washington, D.C., targeting the National Counterterrorism Center and killing 185 people, including public officials and CIA employees. It was a bizarre act of extreme violence that called for extreme measures on the part of elite counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp and his trusted team member, Mike Nash. Now that the initial shock of the catastrophe is over, key Washington officials are up in arms over whether to make friends or foes of the agents who stepped between the enemy's bullets and countless American lives regardless of the legal consequences. Not for the first time, Rapp finds himself in the frustrating position of having to illustrate the realities of national security to politicians whose view from the sidelines is inevitably obstructed.

Meanwhile, three of the al Qaeda terrorists are still at large, and Rapp has been unofficially ordered to find them by any means necessary. No one knows the personal, physical, and emotional sacrifices required of the job better than Rapp. When he sees Nash cracking under the pressure of the mission and the memories of the horrors he witnessed during the terrorist attack, he makes a call he hopes will save his friend, assuage the naysayers on Capitol Hill, and get him one step closer to the enemy before it's too late. Once again, Rapp proves himself to be a hero unafraid "to walk the fine line between the moral high ground and violence" (The Salt Lake Tribune) for our country's safety, for the sake of freedom, for the pursuit of honor.

of course animal farm and 1984 should be on the list. "I will have to look into there will be dragons." That sounds interesting. I guess I should also suggest The Left Behind series.. A bit of Christian fiction... Very good though. I guess Tom Clancy books also count as well.

It's been a long time since i read them, but this series was good. I don't really remember it being political one way or the other but it was a lot of fun to read.

DU, nice. :D

Douglas Reeman is an excellent writer. He joined the Royal Navy at age 16 in WW2. Reeman writes novels about military action at sea, primarily about WW2 and the navies of the Napoleonic Era.

I am friends with one of the writers that took over the Mack Bolan writing duties and he was instumental in me getting my own novel accepted. He opened doors for me I never would have been able to open on my own.

Way cool. Until I looked in Wikipedia I had no idea there were so many Mack Bolan novels written, and evidently still being written.

I'd love to read your novel.

My publisher was going to just eat the advance and not publish it but now they said it should be out in March.

I've read the series ( The Ashes) myself, piece by piece; I'm a huge fan

Jessica Palmero looked once again to see if she had the note from the doctor in her Trapper Keeper. The note that said she could finally participate fully in the practices and games with the volleyball team. She had signed a letter of intent to play with Texas A&M and had been worried about her ankle. It was just a sprain. A couple of weeks, a few games on the bench and she would be as good as new was what the doctor had said. Now she had the note that proved she was as good as new.

While most of her friends had always spoke of what they planned to do after high school, those plans always included college followed by a career. She had never even thought about college until she started dominating in volleyball. The daughter of a single mother who was a career waitress, she always knew that college was not something that was affordable for someone of her station. Then came the summer she grew five inches. Already graceful and athletic, volleyball came easily to her.

She had allowed herself to dream of a career now. To think on what she would do for the rest of her life. She wanted to design cars so she was taking all sorts of computer graphics intensive courses and a lot of math. Jessica had started on the road to promiscuity two years before but when college through volleyball became a possibility, she put aside all thoughts of boys, jettisoned some friends from her circle and decided that she had now set out on a path in life that she was not going to veer from.

Her mother had no one except her. No brothers or sisters, no parents. Jessica had made a plan for the both of them.

Jessica sat in her usual seat. Her stop was the bus' second stop of the morning every morning and she had been riding in that seat for two years. When the bus arrived at her school, it waited behind three other buses. There had been an incident the year before and now the buses all went to the parking lot at the back of the school together and unloaded their cargo there. A fence had been erected around the parking lot along with a gate and guardhouse.

A bus pulled up behind Jessica's and then another, the last one, after that. It was then that she saw him. She had seen him everyday for the last week. Always wearing a hoodie, jeans and a backpack. Today he was standing on the curb, next to her bus and she thought that odd. The other days that she had seen him, he was walking. She always felt that he was either walking to work or walking to an Allsups convenience store that was up the street a couple of blocks. Today he was just standing there. Intently looking at her bus.

She shrugged and gathered everything she had with her as she waited for the train of school buses to move forward. She looked back at the man with the hoodie. He had removed his backpack and now had it in front of himself. There was a white length of plastic pipe about as thick as a broom handle and four inches long hanging out of the top. The man grabbed the pipe and yanked it out of the backpack. The pipe had about 8 inches of wire attached to it when it came out of the backpack. The man then took the backpack and threw it under Jessica's bus.

That was odd, thought Jessica. It was what followed that Jessica thought odder still. For a split second she felt the floor of the bus lift up under her feet. Violently enough to separate her from her seat. Her head meeting the ceiling was the last thing she felt before everything went black.

She did not see fire that engulfed her bus or the explosions that rocked all the other buses that were lined up with hers. She never knew of the attacks on two other schools in her city. All the attacks were alike save for a few tactical changes. Blow up buses full of students in front of their schools. Enter the schools and kill everyone in them. Set up crossfire ambushes for first responders. That was only the first wave. The second wave of the day was even more insidious.

:eek:
