Snitch: A Handbook for Informers

Jack Luger

Just what every red-blooded American needs—a handbook for snitches—as if society doesn't have enough busybodies, stool pigeons, double-crossers, liars and traitors already. But for those who have to squeal, this is required reading. Find out what information is valuable: how to get it, and how to sell it. Learn to negotiate with the police, how cops treat their informers, and how to keep from being finked out by someone else (just about an impossibility these days.) There are chapters on who informs and their motives and compensations, sting operations, company spies, criminal, civilian and prison informers, cops and how they think, becoming an informer and protecting yourself against stoolies. What can happen to informers when they fail or are caught snitching? Learn about the IRS “Turn In A Friend Program.” This book is the ultimate in modern-day American police-state culture. Turn in a friend today before they turn you in tomorrow!

Worms Eat My Garbage

Mary Appelhof

Mary Appelhof is the type of person who gives ecology a good name. She is the owner of Flower Press and Flowerfield Enterprises, and has dedicated most of her adult life to the development of products and techniques related to the conversion of organic materials into fertile soil using earthworms. She is also a skilled photographer and holds master's degrees in education and the biological sciences. This is her first book. It is a common sense guide to composting using worms, which does not assail the reader with bombast.
Among the topics covered are how to build a worm box, where to keep it, what kind of stuff worms can recycle and what other creatures live in worm boxes. There is a useful glossary of terms which is an amazing read in its own right, as well suggested reading. This book makes a potentially dry subject something of real interest. SA

You Are Going to Prison

Jim Hogshire

Loompanics’ embattled how-to star (author of Selling Yourself to Science and Opium for the Masses) depicts in stark terms the perversely brutal conditions under which millions are forced to live in the “Land of the Free,” plus a few pointers on how one might attempt to stay on the outside or at least survive once in the relentless clutches of the “criminal justice machine.” You Are Going to Prison is packed with all the need-to-know info on our number one growth industry, prison construction and incarceration, which never makes it into movies like The Shawshank Redemption or The Birdman of Alcatraz— who was actually a serial prison rapist who shaved his entire body and ate only red meat. Describes everything from what to say when pulled over by a cop to “cheating the hangman” by injecting peanut butter. Includes a detailed analysis of the dreaded topic of sex behind bars and especially prison rape. SS
