My latest book, and first venture into the world of fiction (Survival of the Fittest: Metamorphosis), is out on ebook now. It will follow on paperback in a few weeks, but if e-reading’s your thing, then grab yourself a copy. It is available in Kindle, Kobo and Nook formats (the last two formats may take [Read More...]
Caleb Lack is a good friend of mine. Indeed, I have published four of his book son the Onus Books imprint. He has just had a superb book published (aimed at the academic market but begging a popular release) that has been highly lauded (including by the likes of Michael Shermer). He wrote it with [Read More...]
Zombies and philosophy - what could be better?
My new book, the first fiction book I have written, is out in both paperback and ebook formats. I would really appreciate any support in this venture into a philosophy / fiction crossover. The paperback looks and feels AWESOME! Here are some pics: The book has the following endorsements: “A frightening and credible zombie apocalypse. [Read More...]
In honour of my new zombie book released this month, and which you should all rush out a grab now (obviously), I thought this fascinating piece of news might be worth mentioning. IFL Science reports: A biotech company in the U.S. has been granted ethical permission by an Institutional Review Board in the U.S. and India to use [Read More...]
A few years back, I interviewed my friend and former SIN colleague, Dr Caleb Lack. Since then, we have worked together on a number of book projects, and he has recently released a formidable book, getting many plaudits: Critical Thinking, Science, and Pseudoscience: Why We Can’t Trust Our Brains I am hoping it will get [Read More...]
Just a reminder and a plea in time for those summer holidays coming up! My new book, the first fiction book I have written, is out in both paperback and ebook formats. I would really appreciate any support in this venture into a philosophy / fiction crossover. It is called Survival of the Fittest: Metamorphosis. The [Read More...]
I am plugging my first fiction book, as you may have noticed. It’s a necessary thing for authors. That said, the book deals with religion, science and skepticism in healthy dollops, as you can see from the review below. Fiction was a big risk for me, so I am glad when feedback seems to be good! [Read More...]
I am happy to announce a local books signing and humanist poetry evening at my local book shop in Hampshire, UK (Lee-on-the-Solent, 27-28th May). Anyone who lives nearby is thoroughly welcome (which probably accounts for about 2 of my readers here!). Gareth Howells, of the band BEMIS, will be playing a couple of songs. He [Read More...]
Canadian author and skeptic, Rebecca Bradley, is a good friend of mine (if friends can be defined as people you have never formerly met, but with whom you work closely over the internet and regularly speak to on facebook). I thought it would be nice to interview her as she has an interesting background and [Read More...]
Thanks to John Kingston for so favourably reviewing my new fiction book, Survival of the Fittest: Metamorphosis. Happy days. Brilliant new take on the Zombie theme, 19 May 2016 Johno Pearce is a philosopher, who has written many books and lectures on philosophical, sceptical themes. As far as I know this is his first work [Read More...]
John Loftus has another superb-looking anthology coming out, and I am proud to have written what I think (obviously) is a really good chapter on free will. It documents both the philosophy and science undermining libertarian free will (LFW), and shows how this affects Christian belief. I also look at biblical examples of prophecy and [Read More...]
Filling the Void: A Selection of Humanist and Atheist Poetry is a rare but thoroughly absorbing collection of thought-provoking poetry that I released a few months back. Rather belatedly, I am holding an evening of poetry and songs at a small local book shop. To remind people of this fabulous book (I got shivers down my [Read More...]
I am sorry that this week has been crazily busy. I have had to debate the EU referendum in Bournemouth, and then had a poetry reading with music and whatnot, followed by a four hour book signing for my new zombie fiction book yesterday. Before I get back to talking philosophy and so forth, I wanted [Read More...]
I was recently interviewed on the fab Naked Diner podcast. The interview, as with whenever I talk, goes around the houses and covers a multitude of subjects from zombies to personal identity, US to UK politics, morality to parenting and Santa. Please, please check it out, download it, subscribe to it. At the very least, [Read More...]
The recent release of my first fiction book (Survival of the fittest: Metamorphosis) has made me really proud. Transferring nonfiction skills to the world of fiction is tough. It looks like I have succeeded, as according to the first three reviews in for the book. The book mixes philosophy with the dystopian deconstruction of society. You’ll [Read More...]
In a self-congratulatory manner, I was sent this on facebook of someone on holiday with my new book. Nice. If only more people could follow suit for their holidays! Please grab a copy! There has even been another cracking review this week: 5.0 out of 5 stars Intense, exciting and thought-provoking – quite a combo! [Read More...]
I own a publishing house with a skeptical imprint called Onus Books. The fiction imprint Loom, set up with Canadian author and fellow skeptic Rebecca Bradley (whose first book Cadon, Hunter has just been nominated for the Sunburst Award), is a relatively new project. Both are closely affiliated and have a new website hosted at my old [Read More...]
My new fiction book, and yes, I am plugging the shit out of it, is out and getting some great reviews. Four from Four for five star reviews so far, in the UK! Here they are: 5.0 out of 5 stars Realistic and terrifying ByAmazon Customeron 23 May 2016 Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase Johnny Pearce has [Read More...]
