Samuel Edward Konkin III and three-time Prometheus Award-winner Victor Koman present the secret story of Santa's rebel son in the new, full-length children's book: THE LEGEND OF ANARCHO CLAUS. Little Janie White wants a chemistry set for Christmas, but her parents prohibit it. Waiting up until midnight for jolly, plump old Santa Claus to appear so that she can plead her case, she opens her eyes instead to see a jolly, rotund middle-aged elf dressed in black appear on her hearth. He's Anarcho Claus, who brings forbidden toys to non-coercive girls and boys. Whether it's skateboards, laser pens, dirt bikes, an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock, or -- yes -- chemistry sets, Anarcho Claus sneaks out of Elf-Land every Christmas in his sleek black sleigh piloted by C.B. -- a very gruff polar bear -- with reindeer Rudy leading the team with his black-light nose stealthily guiding the way. With Santa and the US Air Force in pursuit, Anarcho Claus spirits Janie away to the North Pole, where she learns that toys are a waste product in Elf-Land and Santa has been dumping them on humanity for his own secret purposes! Wry, wickedly witty and fast-paced, THE LEGEND OF ANARCHO CLAUS is the year-round Christmas gift you'll want to read to your children over and over. Samuel Edward Konkin III is the author of two seminal works on libertarianism and Agorism: NEW LIBERTARIAN MANIFESTO and AN AGORIST PRIMER. Over the course of thirty years, he wrote, edited, and published newsletters and magazines such as Laissez Faire, New Libertarian Notes, and 101 issues of the longest-running publication of its kind, New Libertarian Weekly. Known to his friends as SEK3, Mr. Konkin graduated cum laude from the University of Alberta, serving as head of the Young Social Credit League there. He received his Masters in Theoretical Chemistry at New York University, but left NYU without submitting his Ph.D. dissertation in Quantum Mechanics to pursue his lifelong efforts to promote Counter-Economics and agorism. He founded the New Libertarian Alliance, the Movement of the Libertarian Left and the outreach organization The Agorist Institute. Mr. Konkin passed away Feb. 23, 2004. His body of work is available from KoPubCo. Victor Koman, a native Californian, is the author of several books, including the underground classic millennial-noir novel The Jehovah Contract and his medical thriller Solomon's Knife. Both novels won the Prometheus Award in their respective years and are available in trade paperback from KoPubCo. Ray Bradbury says of Koman's first award-winner, "The Jehovah Contract has a fascinating concept, imaginatively delivered," and of Koman, "Would that there were a dozen more writers like him in the field." The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction calls his unprecedented third Prometheus Award-winning novel, Kings of the High Frontier "an intriguing, exhilarating, thought-provoking and, yes, sprawling novel that brings back the sense of wonder that drew so many of us into science-fiction in the first place." The novel was the first book published exclusively on the Internet to win the Prometheus award. Mr. Koman lives in Southern California with his wife, daughter, and three cats.
