TODAY as we join Vanessa Neubauer’s latest audio book reading — chapter 18 — of Robert Griffin’s The Fame of a Dead Man’s Deeds we learn about Hunter, William Luther Pierce’s second novel. Hunter is a follow-up to Pierce’s famous The Turner Diaries, and Dr. Pierce considered it to be the more powerful and better-written of the two.
In this book, William Pierce describes a sophisticated, intelligent man who becomes a one-man vigilante force against racial mixing and those who promote it: How could such a thing be conceived? What purpose could such violence serve? Hunter also discusses the work of a revolutionary organization, the National League: Was that Dr. Pierce’s fictional equivalent of the National Alliance? When the League sets up one of its agents to be a Christian televangelist, what was their goal? What was the real conflict between Pierce’s protagonist and a maverick FBI agent? You’re about to find out.
Today we rejoin Vanessa Neubauer in her reading of this week’s installment, chapter 18, of Professor Robert S. Griffin’s masterful biography of Dr. William Luther Pierce, The Fame of a Dead Man’s Deeds.
