From the publisher: “After nearly a decade of skewering politicians, corporations, organized religion, publishers, peers, enemies, friends, and often himself, Brian Keene’s extremely popular ‘Hail Saten’ finally came to an end in 2008. For almost ten years, Keene’s essays were a must-read for both fans and pros. Unfortunately, in a post 9/11 world, they also became a must read for the U. S. Government.
Spanning 2006 to 2008, Leader of the Banned: The Best of Hail Saten, Volume 4 collects the legendary final Hail Saten essays, covering torture porn, writing collaborations, the history of the horror genre, the future of the small press, the media, pop culture, the 2008 presidential race, the Stephen King phenomenon, and more. It also includes the incendiary “If I Were President”—the fateful entry that landed Keene on the government’s watch list. As an added bonus, it also includes many never-before-published essays, as well as material Keene wrote under a pseudonym that was previously unknown to the public—until now.”
