Welcome to the website for the Sipsey Street Irregulars, a merry band of Three Percenters who are fans of the upcoming novel by Mike Vanderboegh, Absolved.
How can you be a fan of something that isn't published yet? That's easy. Because he's been foolish enough to chum the Internet waters with chapters that introduce characters like:
** Charlie Quintard, the Cherokee computer geek with a talent for primitive weapons who knows the way to "Dead Man's Holler."
** Jimmy Flynn, a young Winston County boy who grows up in the middle of a deadly argument between the federal government and the State of Alabama over the real meaning of the Tenth Amendment.
** Barton Meigs, an ATF regional director who comes to doubt everything he's worked for all of his life.
** "Blowfly" Saako, Meigs' replacement whose amoral rise in the agency comes apart when she makes a deadly deal with the mercenary outfit, Brightfire.
** Jack Durer, the former Phoenix Program veteran and retired Alabama Bureau of Investigation agent who seems to know everybody and everything.
** Ray Marsh, the devout governor who struggles to protect the people of Alabama from a predatory federal government.
** Robert Williams, Jr., the first black Attorney General of Alabama who is guided by the memory of his father, a foundiung member of the Deacons for Defense and Justice.
** Gonzo Greene, the ugliest hitman ever to draw breath.
** Will Shipman, the Winston County veteran and militia leader who is the recipient of a unique bequest -- the contents of a railroad boxcar packed 70 years before.
** Phil Gordon, the old widower whose amazing resistance to a lawless ATF raid starts the ball rolling.
The completed work should be in print by the inauguration of Barack Hussein Obama. Great timing, huh?
