Civil War by J. Michael Straczynski
“Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right.

This nation was founded on one principle above all else: The requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world -- "No, YOU move.”
J. Michael Straczynski
1244
“Each of you, for himself or herself, by himself or herself, and on his or her own responsibility, must speak. It is a solemn and weighty responsibility and not lightly to be flung aside at the bullying of pulpit, press, government or politician. Each must decide for himself or herself alone what is right and what is wrong, which course is patriotic and which isn’t. You cannot shirk this and be a man, to decide it against your convictions is to be an unqualified and inexcusable traitor. It is traitorous both against yourself and your country.
Let men label you as they may, if you alone of all the nation decide one way, and that way be the right way by your convictions of the right, you have done your duty by yourself and by your country, hold up your head for you have nothing to be ashamed of.

A handy guide on ways to improve writing. It breaks the content up into four to six pages per chapter with guidelines at the end of each, which makes applying the lessons that much easier.

The Big Book of Lesbian Horse Stories by Alisa Surkis
"This is a parody of every lesbian pulp-fiction plot ever written. There is no lack of freckled farm girls, gangster molls or saddled-policewomen, and the collection of short stories perfectly captures the flavour of the fifties dime novel.
