An A to Z compendium for our paranoid times that explores the most popular conspiracy theories, from Area 51 and vaccines to Chemtrails and JFK. Whether you're a die-hard net-warrior or a freshly initiated paranormal explorer, I is for Illuminati is a mind-blowing trip through the most fascinating-and enduring-conspiracy theories that live on web and circulate the globe. With the ubiquity of the internet, conspiracy theories have infiltrated nearly every aspect of society, from politics to business, sports, healthcare, history, geology, meteorology, the military-industrial complex, and of course, outer space. Whether you want to learn about the world of the Freemasons or are curious about what's really hidden in the restricted areas of the Great Pyramid, Chris Vola has the answers. In this fully illustrated, darkly funny guide that plays on the classic ABC primer, he examines the biggest conspiracies of yesterday, today, and tomorrow, including: A is for Aliens B is for Bermuda Triangle C is for Chemtrails D is for Denver Airport E is for Earth (Flat, Hollow) F is for Fluoride G is for Giants H is for HAARP I is for Illuminati J is for J. Edgar Hoover K is for Kennedy L is for Lizard People M is for Moon Landing N is for Nazi's in South America O is for Opioids P is for Pyramids Q is for QAnon R is for Roswell S is for Smithsonian Institution T is for Time Travel U is for United Nations V is for Vaccinations W is for Walt Disney X is for Planet X Y is for Yeti Z is for Zeitgeist With history (and rhymes!) about twenty-six of the most baffling global conspiracies, illustrated with original full-color drawings created by Keni Thomas and specially designed for the book, this is the ultimate gift for X-files fans, Alexa-muters, and all who want to believe (or already do).
A loving but take-no-prisoners (grant them full amnesty) send-up of the beloved book and television franchise, Lame of Thrones will do for Game of Thrones what Nightlight and The Hunger Pains did for Twilight and The Hunger Games, offering fans a way of reentering the fictional world they have come to love and exploding all of its conventions-as well as their expectations of the characters-to hilarious ends. This side-splitting gut-busting laugh-tastic rib-tickling make-you-laugh ha-ha parody may just even leave you more satisfied than the actual ending of Game of Thrones. And in addition to fancy-shmancy satisfaction, this book will also leave you with something way more important-something no book ever has been able to achieve: gratuitous sex and violence that is somehow more graphic than the sex and violence on the TV version of Game of Thrones. Lame of Thrones will take you to Westopolis, where several different extremely attractive egomaniacs are vying to be ruler of the realm and sit on the Pointy Chair. Our hero Jon Dough was a likely bet, but the untimely murder of him by his own men of the Night's Crotch has made that seem less likely. However, Smellisandre, a witch who has the uncannily convenient ability to bring people back to life is also conveniently located in the same room as Jon's corpse, so maybe she'll do something about it? Will Dragon Queen Dennys Grandslam escape from her Clothkakhi captors and return to conquer the world? Or will she just get left in the desert for the rest of the books, counting grains of sand? And what about Jon Dough's siblings Bland Snark, who's off training with the Pink Eyed Raven, and Malarya Snark, who's off training with the Tasteless Men? Will they be mentioned? Probably? Almost definitely, yes? It would be weird if they weren't prominent characters in the book, you say? To find out, read the book you wish George R.R. Martin would write, aka the book that brought The Harvard Lampoon out of publishing retirement-after five years of wandering the wasteland of the internet-ready to serve parody notice to Game of Thrones, one of the most popular book and television franchises of the past two decades.
