To commemorate the 150th anniversary of John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry, I highly recommend David Reynold's John Brown: Abolitionist. Here's a short JB video by the "Nature Chaplain."

I first heard of Frank Scheffer back during the summer when Dr. Tiller was killed. He was on MSNBC. He and his father help found the Religious Right. He talked about the killing of Tiller. He said that there were those evangelicals who were celebrating big time the killing of Tiller.
I found this man interesting considering I was once a member of the Republican Party when it was still the Republican Party and the religious crazies came in.
Well I got the book last week. Boy, you talk about someone who has exposed these people for what they really are and has suffered the price for it.
And the man has suffered.
Honestly I'm glad I'm an atheist. Living without fear or hysteria.
As Schaeffer says, this country has become the "United States of Hysteria."
It's not a book you can just sit down and read. It's one you read a bit, put it down, and come back to later. In a way, it's just too much to take in with one reading.
I suggest you give it a thumbing through.

@Dallas @Stephen

I hope you don't mind but I went ahead and just linked to the Bibliography so that we have it there.

Later when someone has some time it could be broken down and the books added individually.

I notice that someone has already posted my book Polly! in the list above, for which I am most grateful. Polly! is perhaps the most relevant of my works to members of A|N, since it's about a god that I, as an atheist, wish existed. I do have a bunch of other published books, as my bibliography attests, that might be of interest to all my fellow members who enjoy science fiction and/or fantasy. Other atheists might also particularly enjoy my science fiction book Assault on the Gods.

Just finished George Orwell's Burmese Days. Absolutely outstanding novel. My short review is at http://alenthony.wordpress.com/.

I am currently reading any book I can by Christopher Moore. He's hilarious! I haven't laughed out loud at a book in quite a while. Now I look silly in public. :) I got started with him by reading Lamb.
