Much of my writing contains passages unsuitable for children or for adults who may be sensitive to descriptions of sexual activities, violence, and the consequences of violence. These works are intended only for mature adult readers.
Much of my writing is political. Some readers may be offended by depictions of the activities and attitudes of some political characters. The same may be said of religion – there is substantial religious material in certain passages. Some readers may be offended.
In works of fiction, except for brief mentions of well-known public figures, all of the characters are purely the creations of the author and are not intended to represent real people, living or dead. References to public figures are fictional and should in no way be understood as describing or implying any traits, behaviors, or characteristics of those public figures mentioned.
None of the descriptions of or references to sexual activities, violence, political extremism, or other unusual entities, feelings, or events should be taken as an endorsement of what is described. In fact, the author deplores almost all such entities, events, or feelings as described. Effective and admirable people are honest, friendly, and inclined not to go to extremes. The characters appearing in my works are (with only minor exceptions) my creations, and, not being real people, may have exaggerated traits or traits that are entirely fabricated. While some of the characters are admirable people, many are not. Readers are expected to use good judgment in evaluating the characters and the works in which they are found.
