After listening to author Eric Bryant talking about this for more than a year (…when he wasn’t typing like a crazy maniac in my living room during his Berlin exile), I’m happy I can announce the premiere of “The Three Financiers”, perfect reading material for the ongoing financial crisis.
D’Ponzi’s inheritance has been stolen by banksters. And the only way to get it back is by swashbuckling his way to the top of the rat race…
The Three Financiers is a mashup novel combining Dumas’ classic yarn with the events of the 2008 financial crisis and election. The first serialization, perfect topical reading while waiting for your fellow citizens to set up that guillotine, is available for free download here.
Enjoy, mon frère!
“You speak in absurdities, you presumptuous dunce,” said Konmann. “And you know that I detest ideology, except as propounded by Kronius. Furthermore, my dear fellow, you seem to have forgotten that the American public will never accept one-party rule. Nay, our glorious republic requires two parties, in order to provide the illusion of disagreement; thus, it suits me to say, you are the one speaking leftist platitudes. I will be a televangelist if it suits me, but in the meantime I am a Financier, in which character I say what I choose, or at least what sounds persuasive. And at this moment I choose to tell you: you are so ugly, that when you were born, the doctor slapped your mother.”
“Konmann, thou art a villain!” cried Usurios, drawing his rapier.
