Everybody complains about politics, but does anyone do anything about it? Stephen L. Thompson’s attempt to do something about it is to collect forty of his short stories with a political element into his Political Pies anthology. His stories are either politically neutral or equally condemning of the national parties. Instead of trying to sway you to one ideology or another, his goal is to just get people thinking about politics in the hopes a rose might grow out of all the political manure.
Where to find Political Pies
The CreateSpace eStore, which gives me a higher royalty, FYI.
It is also on Amazon in both paperback, and Kindle formats. The links will take you to the US site for each.
I used to have links to every site I found my books on. It was nice, but it was also a bit messy. So when I decided to clean up my links, I did a search for the best online bookstores. I found several lists, and I cobbled together this listing - in no particular order - of the better websites. The links will take you to the listing for my book. If your favorite site isn’t listed, you can probably find my book using these ISBNs: 9781479360864 or 1479360864.
Barnes & Noble, Powell’s Books, Books-A-Million, Alibris, Books at Half.com, AbeBooks, and Tattered Cover Book Store.

It’s also available at Dixon Corner Country Store, in case you’re ever in the neighborhood.

I also made a video of me reading two of the stories you’ll find within.
The titles that are linked were previously published. If they are still online, the link takes you to the original story. Otherwise, the link goes to my original blurb about the story.
