More > and personal prowess done in time past by some of the many champions of the nation in the various crises of her history.

Is history really just one more form of amnesia? "Hobson's Choice" explores absent-minded history through a biography of a famous man that nobody knows. He’s a soldier, statesman,... More > businessman and movie mogul. He has the respect of the world, yet no one knows quite what to make of him. "Hobson's Choice" is the first book in the trilogy, "The Conspiracy Theory of History." It precedes "Pandora's Canary," which asks who runs things in this world, probing the hidden corners of an affluent Baltimore neighborhood to find out. The third book, "It Came Out of the Sky" wonders: does it really matter? These three books put the "story" in "history." They combine into a twisted satire of who we are, and who we think we are. As rocker/DJ/novelist, Greg Kihn says: "Heyrman writes prose the way Tiger Woods swings a golf club, with effortless grace, yet full of power."< Less
