The pen is mightier than the rapier as these modern musketeers fight the machinations of House Speaker Janet Richardson (MA) and Senator Majority Leader Jean Ward (WV) to protect the reputation of Vice President Anderson and save the presidency of William Walker Lewis.

In The Dream of Poor Bazin, Stephen Price Blair engages in verbal street brawls despite President Lewis’s executive orders forbidding partisanship. He adventures to Rochelle (Louisiana), evades the Klan, and interviews an apocalyptic cult in an armed standoff with Postal agents—and also takes down that rural state’s malicious governor. He protects the Vice President from scurrilous maneuverings in Congress; protects the President from the outside-the-beltway hate machine; and rises through the ranks of an obscure online news outlet in pursuit of a chair in the White House Press Corps.

Join Stephen Blair, Charles Shoat, Tucker Welsport, and Simon Rockwall as they provide total coverage of the Washington, DC political scene.

The Dream of Poor Bazin is available now from Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, and all your favorite bookstores.
