Plantation America Book Series Reading Order
Crackpot Mailbox: Free J.R. Wants to Know

(Mar 5, 2020)
I read "Stillbirth of a Nation" and was wondering where to find the best reading order for the follow-on books and a title list for use in searching for them.
Also read Logic of Force and Logic of Steel. Good stuff and very much in the same vein as my interviews with men coming back from Iraq & Afghanistan that turned into both discrete case studies and statistics as to what sorts of missions were being executed.
Much of your empirically-derived data would be dismaying for many of the martial arts instructors with which I trained. Having spent more time in rough neighborhoods than I liked, I suspect that one of the best "self defense" purchases I have ever made was a house in a low-crime area. And the best "self-defense" technique I have learned is to stay out of bars.

Okay, and freedom to you J.R.
The entire series is a fucking accident of science-fiction research. So I suppose I owe a reading order.
The bookstore link, with a video describing the books:
The reading order perhaps depends on your motive for reading it. Assuming a desire for general learning, I will make a reading order list with an exception out to the side:
#1 Vol.2 ~ American in Chains places Caucasian slavery in context with a chronology of slave ages and slavery events going back to the middle ages, and numerous reviews of African American slavery narratives. This is very accessible to someone who has not read a lot of history. This is the first volume an African American should read.
#2 Vol.3 ~ Into Wicked Company is the shortest and easiest to read and I would recommend it to people who find reading a burden. It provides more context for Stillbirth of a Nation and would be the first volume I'd give to a teenager or person who likes verse.
#3 Vol.1 ~ Stillbirth of a Nation is the saga of thrice abducted Peter Williamson, and would be my first choice for a military man to read.
#4 Vol.4 ~ A Bright Shining lie at Dusk was an attempt to bundle a mess of errata on Plantation America and put it out as a companion to readers of volumes 1-3 in an attempt to wash my hands of the series. If you buy Crackerboy or The Greatest Lie Ever Sold on the site I'll send this to you for free. If you ask for it, I'll send it. I'm emailing you a copy. It is just a companion to the better-formed volumes.
#5 Vol.7 ~ The Lies That Bind Us lays out the foundations for Plantation America via a study of The Magna Carta and is otherwise a mass of support material like A Bright Shining Lie at Dusk.
#6 Vol.9 ~ The Greatest Lie Ever Sold makes the case that American history is a lie stemming from the abdication of the English king at the signing of the Magna Carta. It is the op-ed companion to the annoatted litany of Crackerboy.
#7 Vol.8 ~ Cracker-Boy is the one volume that needs to be read by anyone who would argue against the narrative mainstream in America which claims that only Africans can be owned as human property. If you only buy one Plantation America book, this is the one.
#8 Vol.5 ~ So Her Master May Have Her Again is the first read I recommend for women, looking at the specific economics of being a runaway broad in Plantation America.
#9 Vol.6 ~ So His Master May Have Him Again is the one book you should give to a working class liberal ghost man and is all about the economics of being a broke-ass cracker-boy in the land of the wee and the home of the knave.
Note: Paleface, the white Indian history, will not be written. Rather each of the following books will have a paleface section on white Indians, who were very often escaped slaves.
#10 Vol.10 ~ American Spartacus is about the over 400 acts of slave revolt I have documented, along with various reviews of primary sources sketching the conditions and histories of some non-slave uprisings in the United States and earlier Plantations. It will be 2 volumes at about 1,000 pages and will probably replace Cracker-Boy as the best single source.
#11 Vol.11 ~ The Thirteenth Tribe is about religiously sanctioned slavery in America and focuses on Pennsylvania and New England the myth of the Christian abolitionist movement and the reality that every slave in America, no matter his race, was held in bondage according to Judeo-Christian law. This will be the most heavily weighted volume towards piracy and the white Indian situation.
#12 Vol.12 ~ Plantation America: A History Denied will serve as an overview, an index, a list of corrections to mistakes in earlier volumes and will take the story of the runaway white boy into the realm of the mixed race runaway, as virtually every extant slave narrative by a runaway African American" was the story of a man who was at least half European.
Fiction: the novel Sold is complete and the sequel Bound is just started. I recommend Sold to anyone at any time in tis reading who would like more immediate texture and to anyone who just can't get through a history text. It is the real story of Thomas Hellier and two fictional composite characters patterned on Peter Williamson and other targets of the soul-drivers who staffed Plantation America in its misery with the toiling souls of the doomed and forgotten.

Thank you for this, I am trying to interest my wife in one of your books to start. We are both interested in actual history, not the fairy tales were were told in school, but she does not trust anything I read or listen to on the internet (that shit you listen to) is the actual phrase she uses.

I am wanting to buy a book for her, and when she sees me reading it, she will naturally be curious. Sneaky, I know, but it is the best I can think of.

Buy So Her Master May Have Her Again to get her interested

Thanks you for writing these books. I've bought 4 of them, Vol 1, 2, 8, 9, through Amazon, and will review them as I read them, both on my blog ( ) and at Amazon.

They are quite unlike other history books, but excellent so far. I've been on a "history of slavery" reading jag recently, and as a history teacher (among other things, also a small-time author, only 4 books to my credit) I think this is a topic that really NEEDS a strong academic / scholarly book to address. I'm tired of the chip-on-shoulder blacks, the guilt-ridden liberal whites, the oh-so-entitled everyone else, all divided and arguing while the wealthy continue to laugh all the way to the bank. A solid, tightly written, well-edited, highly organized (I really like your etymology tangents, btw, they help greatly), properly cited and somewhat more academically-toned book will go a long way towards helping the social situation in so many ways. It's hard to get to people who think they/"their people" were uniquely victimized or evil.

Again, thanks for writing these books, and please keep writing, and I'll do what I can to get the word out. I am not be a big-time blogger, but I do seem to exist in a strange corner of the universe where somewhat improbable things happen.
