    …Or does it Explode

    “…Or does it Explode” is a thrilling man-hunt historic murder mystery about what’s possible in a society that obstructs justice in favor of a false and temporary (400 years) sense of security.
    The yearning for justice breeds vigilante revenge in an oddball group of black men experience in gun usage and military tactics who call themselves the Larry Davis Posse even as the press dubs them the Black Marble Vigilantes.
    A fictional story based on events that have happened and events that have yet to happen, The FBI forms a task force to hunt down the cop killers before white mobs invade black communities nation-wide. There is a desperate race for time.
    This story calls for the creation of an American law enforcement Truth and Reconciliation Commission to stop the police killing of unarmed black men and boys
    The tale “Or Does It Explode” provides a powerful message from a Black Arts Movement era writer exhausted with all of the killings of innocent unarmed black men and boys – not just the recent rash of killings of 2013 to 2016 but all of the killings of more than the last half century.
    The book is dedicated to Eleanor Bumpers, the emotionally disturbed elderly black woman shot gunned to death in 1984 by NYPD for being behind in her rent.

    Truth & Absurdities

    Author Horace Mungin has lived through much of the traumas and triumphs of the modern American experience and he offers his original opinions on it all. Truth & Absurdities contains his commentary on some of the events of the last half century of American history. Written from his personal point of view, many of the essays involves himself and his family as they encounter and react to unfolding floods of American realities; still the reader experiences his creative manner of expression and a chance to validate the truth in his keen observations about some of the absurdities of American society as he hilariously plugs us into them.

    This book is both seriously profound and uproarious funny. Mungin expresses an appreciation for ethical behavior with a genuine candor and he dissects irrationalities with his own glowing brand of mockery – see what happens when he places Rush Limbaugh on the Jerry Springer Show, or when he uses the characters Amos ‘N Andy to explain the Obama senate seat fiasco that took place in Chicago and in Washington.

    The author delivers his outrage at the irrationalities that has befallen (enough) white people since the election of Barack Obama as president with a modest delight. Through it all; from the over-eager terrorist fist-bump description given by Fox News anchor E. D. Hill to the incivility of the Bill O’Reilly interviews of Barack Obama, this book unmask the malaise of embroidered malarkey infecting much of middle America. Truth & Absurdities invites you to dine on appetizing particulars and drink in the intoxicating wine of reality

    A Different Point of View

    The poems in this book were written over a forty-seven year period, between 1965 and 2012. They are arranged in two sections. The first section is called The Reconstruction. The poems in this section represent the era when the author’s literary universe was formulating anew 1979 to the present. This reframing of his mind-set started a decade or so after the end of legal segregation in the South and the establishment of a handful of national laws to protect the civil rights of African Americans. This was also when restrictions on black people in almost every field of endeavor started crumbling down. The second section of the book is called The Insurrection. The poems in this section represent the period of the movement – the turbulent sixties when individuals and organizations were rebelling against America’s culture of racism. During this time the author form words into poems that described, encouraged or aided the insurrection. This is how he was made to feel that he was a part of the movement by having it shape his thinking and his literature. This section contains poems expressed in aggressive petitions for black liberation and racial justice - the passionate radical flames of the author’s youth.

    The Devil Beats His Wife: And Other Stories From the Low Country

    Is a collection of stories that could not have been written just a generation ago. Nearly all of the stories take place in a place called the New South with racial relationships that would have been unimaginable prior to the Civil Rights Movement. The laws that came about during the sixties proved that behavior can be changed through legislation. Racial tensions and inequalities still exist among the last generation of whites with a psychological need for white Privileges and the last generation of blacks who will tolerate the imbalances created by white privilege – in the New South these matters are confronted with a new attitude and it is this new assertiveness that colors the stories in this book.
