Buy The Gospel According to Malfew Seklew for $4.95 for Kindle at amazon.com “Like Thomas Paine, Malfew Seklew rips the mask of sham and pretense from the hypocrites and fakers and will be appreciated about 100 years after he is dead.” Malfew Seklew is to the pen what his friend and flat-mate of Ragnar Redbeard (author of ‘Might is Right’) was to the sword. He lived by his wits, took the path of lease resistance (no sic!), and wrote some of the most engaging egoist essays ever. The millennium of Malfew is upon us! Out of print for nearly a century, with rare collected works and a new introduction by Trevor Blake. NEW EDITION VERY SOON.

Todo lo que te viniere a la mano para hacer, hazlo con todas tus fuerzas; porque en el sepulcro, adonde tú vas, no hay obra, ni industria, ni ciencia, ni sabiduría. / Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest. / Alles, was dir vor Handen kommt, zu tun, das tue frisch; denn bei den Toten, dahin du fährst, ist weder Werk, Kunst, Vernunft noch Weisheit.

This book includes all the memorials in downtown Portland.

Confession / satire by the mind-controlled assassin of John F. Kennedy. “In early November of 1963, Slim and I arrived at the little house in Harahan, Louisiana, and Brother-in-law said to me, as soon as I sat down, ‘Kerry, give me some ideas about assassinating John F. Kennedy.’ I was more than happy to oblige; for years I had been saving up ideas about how to murder the President. I’d spoken of assassinating Kennedy to anyone who would listen to me ever since my arrival in New Orleans.”
