Audacity Submissions Open

We are seeking contributions to a very special zine, Audacity, which is being put together in this tumbledown world of ours.

The topic for the fifth edition is ABILITY.

We are looking for writings of up to 500 words, photographs which speak volumes, and art which shouts a thousand words at a time. Our submissions deadline is April the 30th, so there isn’t long to get your creative on.

With this edition we are asking only for submissions for those creatives who are disabled or with disabilities, people dealing with chronic illness, visible or not, people who are neurodivergent or anyone who has been questioned in their ability to achieve self actualisation.

Submissions to be made to:  Cynefinroad@gmail.com

Audacity may well be a zine, and completely pro-bono, but it will be freely distributed across the world in electronic form. Call it a showcase, call it an anthology, call it a collection. Call it what you may, we’re going to take this inspiration, this creativity, this love, and we’re going to add a little magic and set it free on the winds. Where it belongs.

Alternative War: Online Index

In 2017, working with Byline Media, we proudly published a significant public interest work: Alternative War.

Based upon painstaking open source research, interviews, and investigation, the book presented a clear picture of a covert information war taking place across the West, being waged by Russia in partnership with far-right figures and populists.

The public interest in the book’s continued publication remains over-riding at the start of 2018.

A third edition of the book is being prepared as soon as reasonably practicable which will for the first time incorporate footnotes, to ensure that any material not specifically cited and referenced already is captured fully. This is an administrative procedure.

Due to the volume of material contained within the book, we have constantly weighed the pubic interest against administration and found the former has always taken priority.

In the meantime, the constantly evolving, organic index for this work can be found online at https://www.byline.com/column/67/article/1936

Happy new year.

New Release: Alternative War


Release Date: 18/08/2017
Pre-order now at http://www.cynefinroad.co.uk

In Alternative War, former police officer turned investigative journalist James Patrick tackles Russian interference in the UK’s Brexit referendum and the US election of President Donald Trump head-on, exposing the reality of the third world war in the face of fake news and sophisticated disinformation campaigns.Based on interviews, documents, and information from both sides of the Atlantic, including an expedition to Sweden to explore Russian-sponsored alt-right disinformatsiya, this book uncovers the truth about the undeclared conflict which has rocked democracy, peace, and stability across the West.

Over the course of an extensive investigation spanning Europe, North America, and beyond, Patrick has brought together experts, classified intelligence reports, public records, and witness testimony to build the most extensive and accurate account of Vladimir Putin’s assault on the NATO allies to date. The book documents how detached and deniable assets, including Wikileaks and the far-right – including UKIP and Republican officials – were engaged by Russia to successfully subvert two of the world’s superpowers and install managed democracies in the execution of a strategy planned over decades, to enhance the Russian position and destabilise its perceived enemies.

Alternative War exposes the depth and complexity of a hybrid world war and captures the methods used to profile and manipulate populations in order for Russia to emerge victorious. The book leads us to question everything about Western regulation and enforcement, setting accountability at the highest levels while empowering the people everywhere to help ensure the world is never taken by surprise again.
