    At home we have a ton of random books from the late 50s - early 60s like that. Typically TimeLife is the publisher.

    I just finished Sanity, by the nrx blogger, NeoVictorian.

    It was pretty good, if you like a style reminiscent of James Ellroy (L.A. Confidential, et al).
     
  3. I read that too, it was pretty good.
    THere needs to be more, new, rightist stuff.

    I love those too, but this one is a 800 page, small print, ultra-masterpiece by an Oxford professor. I may expand on this later.

    So many of my favorite books from my childhood were antiquities treatments about Rome and ancient/classical Greece from Oxford Press.

    I happened upon a book of short stories by Yukio Mishima chilling in a bookcase of random readables in the laundry room last night. Got to reading a couple today. A character from one of them is clearly a BAP-type who functions as a foil to the feelsguy protagonist.

    Read Patriotism. That story hit me in the feels.

    Askari Dawn.

    Ramon from the old Hall wrote it.

    It's on Kindle now, it has a lot of the old hall guys in it, albeit in amped up 80s action movie versions.

    About halfway through book two of the Gaunt’s Ghosts series, Ghostmaker, by Dan Abnett. Written very well. No spoilers beyond chapter 1 stuff, but it follows the tale of the Tanith First and Only the lone imperial guard regiment from a dead planet and their commanding officer, Colonel-Commissar Ibram Gaunt. It’s refreshing to read a warhammer 40k book series not centered around superhuman space marines or inhuman xenos. Just a bunch of skilled backwoods humans very adept at asymmetrical warfare. No Mary Sues as is typical in modern sci fi. I have a bunch of these books so it will be some time before I get through them all but will probably find another good 40k series to delve into next.

    I wish I had stuck with that series, when I had the time to rapidly burn through books
