Mutiny! Why We Love Pirates and How They Can Save Us is available right now.

‘Lyrical and lucid… a startlingly original work’ – Third Way Magazine.

You can get it here (sorry – hand-printed hardbacks not currently available) :

Paperback: Lulu |  Amazon.com |  Amazon.co.uk

Ebook: Lulu |  Kindle (US / Canada) |  Kindle (UK)  |  iBookstore  &  Nook – follow links from your device!

Or you can ask your bookstore to stock a copy, quoting the ISBN: 978-0-9559813-7-1

There is no big ad budget or marketing push behind the book – in true pirate style it’s going to rely on more under-the-radar information networks… So any reviews you can write, or links you can spread around your social networks – it’d all be appreciated!

As to why I self-published, rather than use my normal publisher, you can read all about it here.

Here’s the TEDx Talk I did on pirate culture in April 2013 – and below it a talk on ‘Pirates and Prodigals’ – examining the radical theological implications of pirate culture. Enjoy!

    Thanks for these great videos, kevin. Now i must be bad in the head, because i shouldn’t feel better by listening to your Radical Theology story, but i do! The real problem (for me, i guess) is that i also feel better by listening to the Radical Orthodoxy story! Now, am i bad in the head, or do the two radicalisms somehow relate well in your good heads also? Thank you Peter and Barry, also

    Dear Kester,
    My name is Jackie Velnoskey. I saw that you have written Mutiny! Why We Love Pirates, and How They Can Save Us. My question for you is: may I promote the book at the American Library Association’s Midwinter Meeting & Exhibition in Boston, early January? Is costs you nothing. All I’m asking you in return is if we may add you to our book marketing email list.
    I’m giving you two ALA Exhibition promotion options to choose from: 1: you may forward a copy of your book to our address (see below), and we’ll display it in Boston, or 2: we’ll include your work in the Hot Indy Author Guide that we’re displaying and distributing during the ALA event. Either option is free. Check out our Facebook page when we report live from Boston where over 7,000 librarians are expected.
    At America Star Books we have a book promotion department that does nothing but offering book promotion at the lowest fees in the nation. We attend all of the big fairs and festivals: Book Expo America, London Book Fair, Frankfurt Book Fair, Miami Book Fair International, Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, the American Library Association mid-winter and annual Conferences, Baltimore Book Festival, and so on.
    All I am asking you at this time is if we may add you to our email list when we issue our next book promotion offers. You may at any time unsubscribe, and we will promptly cease sending you any further emails. America Star Books has been around for more than fifteen years, serving over 60,000 authors. Participating in book promotion is entirely optional.

    Thank you for considering this opportunity. I am looking forward to hearing back from you.

  3. Black Spot Mutiny

    We are the “Black Spot Mutiny” of http://www.blackspotmutiny.com The following is the first two paragraphs of our mission statement.

    Our name, “THE BLACK SPOT MUTINY (BSM),” is the foundation of our mission. In pirate tradition, we are in open mutiny against the old world gods, old world religions, old world values, and old world leaders. For the new gods to be born, the old gods must die. For new values to be established, we must “Revalue all Values”. Ideologies that are not consistent with Future Humanity must be cast to the sharks. Leaders who place their private will above the collective, shall walk the plank.

    Planet Earth is the collective ship of Humanity. The old world gods, old world religions, old world values, and old world leaders have failed to steer our collective ship into the future. Instead, the collective ship of Humanity is headed for the rocks and immanent danger. We cast the BLACK SPOT OF MUTINY to the old gods. We dispose them as leaders of this world and take possession of our destiny.

    Your Reign Is Over!

    The Ship Is Ours!

    Upon proclaiming the death of god Friedrich Nietzsche questioned, the “God[s] [are] dead and we have killed [them]…must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of this deed?” The stance of the BLACK SPOT MUNITY is that leaving the old gods in our wake, is demonstration that we are worthy to become gods ourselves!
