Creative ways to wake the dead

Steve Alten: The Shell Game

On January 22, 2008, N.Y. Times best selling author, Steve Alten and Sweetwater Books will release The Shell Game, a cautionary tale, written in the guise of fiction, that exposes the hidden truths behind the events of September 11th and the invasion of Iraq, along with the neo-conservative agenda to wage a new war in Iran. Meticulously researched, Alten’s tour de force focuses its plot on the end of oil and the next 9/11 event, election fraud and the corporate influence that is tainting America. Its main character experiences the dangers of the Patriot Act and the effects of torture, along with the double standards that allow the Saudi monarchy to use oil profits to foster hatred toward the West and Israel.

By writing the story as a novel, this established mainstream author brings our own important messages into mainstream America. Should the book become a big best seller, it would drive these issues into the limelight during the most important election in our nation’s history. In addition, the book’s success would raise all of the 9/11 organizations’ boats. The author’s appearances on mainstream venues such as Today Show, Good Morning America, Daily Show, David Letterman, and the Tonight Show, along with hundreds of radio, TV News, and print media will be used to generate renewed interest in our own investigative areas of interest and could very well lead to hearings while influencing the 2008 elections. Such is the power of a focused mainstream message.

A major public relations plan is already underway to launch The Shell Game onto best seller lists. Front table space has been secured in all Barnes & Nobel and Borders Bookstores. A first run of 40,000 books has been ordered (31,000 books have already been pre-sold into stores).

Although this book is a work of fiction, it is jam-packed with facts about 9/11, the Patriot act, the failure of the 9/11 Commission, and the creation of Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. When this book is published, a whole new audience will be exposed to these facts, facts normally found only in non-fiction by David Ray Griffin and read mostly by people already in the know. Additionally, this book will be promoted heavily in the mainstream media, in outlets we've had little representation in the past without the help of big names like Charlie Sheen, Ed Asner, and Rosie O'Donnell.

The author has assured me that he will do everything he can while promoting this book to increase visibility of the movement and to "expose these criminals and what they did". Steve Alten has sold millions of books and he routinely ends up on the New York Times Bestseller List so the potential here is huge. The goal is to get this novel in to the top ten list ASAP, so consider picking up a copy on January 22.
