Dispatch from the Razor's Edge, the Blog of Michael Stephen Fuchs
2009.04.17 : Young Angry Smart Men of Various Shades

Here are two extremely energizing political commentators upon whom I've stumbled in my various trawlings of the rightward edges of the InterWebs. Both are young, both are hip, both are right-wing nutjobs, both have beef, and – perhaps most importantly – both are funny as all heck. Seriously.

I'm not entirely sure I would pick them as Official Ambassadors For Conservative (Or, As I Would Prefer It, Classically Liberal (*)) Political Philosophies. I certainly don't agree with all their positions. (One is staunchly anti-abortion; the other is staunchly anti-vegan. For instance.) But I do love the heck out of watching them. It's an extremely novel form of, let's call it, performance politics.

I've picked just a couple of better samples of each. You may surf their full oeuvres at your leisure. (Here and here.)

Fuchs is the author of the novels The Manuscript and Pandora's Sisters, both published worldwide by Macmillan in hardback, paperback and all e-book formats (and in translation); the D-Boys series of high-tech, high-concept, spec-ops military adventure novels – D-Boys, Counter-Assault, and Close Quarters Battle (coming in 2016); and is co-author, with Glynn James, of the bestselling Arisen series of special-operations military ZA novels. The second nicest thing anyone has ever said about his work was: "Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt put in a firefight'." (Kirkus Reviews, more here.)

Fuchs was born in New York; schooled in Virginia (UVa); and later emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lived through the dot-com boom. Subsequently he decamped for an extended period of tramping before finally rocking up in London, where he now makes his home. He does a lot of travel blogging, most recently of some very  long  walks around the British Isles. He's been writing and developing for the web since 1994 and shows no particularly hopeful signs of stopping.
