Dear Readers and Friends,
My novel Molôn Labé! is in the running against 12 very worthy contenders for the 5 finalists in the Libertarian Futurist Society's famous Prometheus Award. (For the history of the award, visit http://www.lfs.org/awards.htm )
This is quite an honor for any libertarian novelist, and I am thrilled that my first work of fiction has been nominated. The finalists will be announced this month on http://www.lfs.org/ The winner will be announced in September.
I'm not only up against my favorite novelist Neal Stephenson — he has TWO books in the running! Exciting times!
Boston T. Party - March 7, 2005
ABOUT Molôn Labé!
Yes, the time has finally come! Molôn Labé! (mo-LAWN lah-BAY) is now available! Begun in 1997,the story was so sweeping and the details so numerous that writing it took Boston six years. He describes the 454 page Molôn Labé! as "a book of thought for action people; an action book for people of thought."
Molôn Labé! captures the probable headlines of 2005-2020. As our Potomac masters increasingly try to run our lives and wipe out state prerogatives, organized resistance in some form is assured. Boston believes that while it is too late to "take back" America, the time is ripe to converge on an already comparatively free state and forge the Jeffersonian ideal of local autonomy and liberty.
Molôn Labé! is a fictional account of a real-world blueprint for a free state initiative focused on Wyoming. If just 4,000 freedom-loving individuals will relocate there under a useful pattern, they can "liberate" the Cowboy State on many levels. In Wyoming we could truly enjoy our rights of gun ownership, privacy, schooling, health and diet, unrestricted travel, and property. Boston shows us how it actually can be done! Very soon he will debut his organization to spearhead the initiative (details to follow on our redesigned website).
Retail price of Molôn Labé! is $24 + $6 s&h.
Pent-up demand for Molôn Labé! is tremendous, and Boston's readers have been clamoring for it since 2000. Prepare yourself for the most exciting read since Unintended Consequences and Patriots!
Order today to be "first on your block" to enjoy Molôn Labé! See you in Wyoming!

|Molôn Labé! READER COMMENTS AND REVIEWS|
– D. Hill, from the Internet
Lady Liberty's Read: Molôn Labé! is a compelling read, not simply because the story itself will hold your attention but because it does bear some resemblence to the real-life Free State and Free State Wyoming Projects. While you'll be able to use this book as many other novels as an enjoyable escape of sorts, I suspect you'll also find it an interesting commentary on today's America, and how we might address the problems that we see. I enjoyed Molôn Labé! very much. I've been moved to tears or laughter by books before, but I must confess that Molôn Labé! is the first I've read that actually moved me to hope.

I just finished reading Molôn Labé! I'm jazzed! It certainly made me want to get out of L.A. and head for Wyoming soonest.

...a fine book...I was pretty engaged by the story. ...I think the plot is brilliant. The story left me depressed at times, elated at others, and in the end I'm still left thinking about it. I feel honored knowing you in that I truly believe your political manifesto is truly an original work of art, a call to arms completely rational, and hopefully it...will turn into a force to be reckoned with.

I finished the book last evening although the appendix will require multiple readings. Molôn Labé! is historical fiction at it's finest. It's apparent that much thought went into this novel. You've put together a blueprint for success.

I loved the book and I recommend it to like-minded folks as often as I can. The final Playboy interview with Preston was a plethora of amazingly lucid food for thought and alone worth the price of the book. You did a superb job of finding and describing the common ground between Christians and Libertarians!

First, thanks for being you. Molôn Labé! is the best $25 I ever spent. I will post an Amazon review sometime later today.

Always bright and innovative, Boston has outdone himself in his new novel. Cleverly crafted, Molôn Labé! weaves a story that is well done and may evolve from a timely tome into reality sometime in our future. I suggest you "Come and take them!"--the novel from Boston T. Party.

Molôn Labé! is a magnificent revelation. I'd also like to purchase a hardcover copy.

The novel is the story of a small group of freedom advocates who tire of the creeping socialism of the United States. It is set in the very near future, ending in . In this case the how-to is how to take over the state of Wyoming via the political process and what to do with this power once achieved. Thus it is more of a political thriller than a military one. The story is an interesting one and I found the book an enjoyable read.
As a hard hitting polemic and how-to guide it succeeds.... BTP has created an engaging book with more ideas per page than the binding can contain. Readers who enjoyed other self published books in this vein, such as Unintended Consequences, will likely be able to overlook the rough edges and be carried along by the story, ideas and abundance of anecdotal asides....
Molôn Labé! is sure to have you looking at things in a new light after reading it. For this it must ultimately be considered a success and a worthwhile read.
Thank you for the Great American Novel!
I have read and enjoyed this book, and highly recommend it. I agree that it is not accurately characterized as a novel. I consider it a fictional "chronicle" of a free-state type project. The story provides some excellent educational examples (illustrating better than any advice article can about one's rights in a traffic stop, for instance.)
It is in fact a manual on achieving freedom, as well as a fascinating and thought-provoking excercise into how one would create a truly free society....
This novel is not primarily a "gun book", but it remains a must read for all who care about gun rights because of the essential role that firearm rights play in the story, and in the lives of all people who seek to secure freedom.
While not a traditional novel, Molôn Labé! will entertain and stimulate readers, who will learn about search and seizure law, fully informed juries, computer cryptography and security, electoral politics, monetary crisis, and more bloody and embarassing raids by federal agencies.
To get fully into the spirit of the book and Boston's philosophy, you can buy it direct from him by sending cash through the mail directly to him (I suggest taking advantage of an offer to buy several of his books for a major discount.)
I'm really impressed with Molôn Labé! and look forward to more of your fiction in [the] future. You deserve the highest praise for the scene of [an unnamed character's] death. That was the most beautiful page you've ever written. I was sobbing by the end of it, and again on the next page...

Molôn Labé! requires...more neurons [from the] reader, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Also, it always struck me that we had a national database to check firearms purchases by US Citizens many years before we had one to watch for murderous foreign terrorists trying to enter the country. As far as I am aware, no one has ever commented about this.
