I spent Black Friday on the airwaves, guest-hosting for Rush on America's Number One radio show. But I'd like to think that the audience was a little smaller than usual because at least some of the folks trampling li'l ol' ladies into the dust at shopping malls up and down the land were stampeding for my boffo cat album, Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats. It's still stacking up five-star reviews at Amazon, where it's available in CD or digital format - or via iTunes or CD Baby. Rush's cat Allie quite likes it.
But you don't have to brave the malls for the big Steyn gift this year. Ever since I began guest-hosting stints behind the Golden EIB Microphone all those years ago, I've had periodic emails demanding to know, "When are you going to get your own show?" Well, who can compete with Rush on radio? What's the point of that? But TV's a different matter, and so I finally bit the bullet and signed up for a new nightly television extravaganza called (just so there's no mistake about what it is) The Mark Steyn Show.
If you've a Steyn fan in your family - and let's face it, who does? whoops, I mean, who doesn't? - then this is the perfect gift: a full year of me, every weekday for a full hour, and entirely commercial-free. What's on the show? All the big-picture biz: free speech, Islam, Big Climate, identity politics, demography and decline, war and terrorism, doom and gloom, all the fun stuff. But we'll also find time for the smaller pleasures - movies and books and favorite songs, the things that make life worth living. If you like civilizational collapse and live music on the same bill, then The Mark Steyn Show is your one-stop shop.
You can watch me and my guests from almost anywhere in the world - well, anywhere with electricity - at any hour of the day on whatever delivery system you so desire: TV or telephone, Amazon or Apple, whatever's your bag. And this special Christmas offer includes not only my show but the rest of CRTV's great content from the likes of Michelle Malkin, Steven Crowder and Mark Levin - plus a free copy of my book The [Un]documented Mark Steyn, which Rush calls "a must-read". Simply enter promo code "STEYN BOOK CLUB" at checkout - and get a year of great TV plus a meaty read for the holidays.
~The Christmas season at the SteynOnline store means fantastic special offers with big savings on Steyn books, Steyn CDs, Steyn trialwear, and various Yuletide combinations thereof. We hope you'll check them out soon, because they vanish with the dawning of Boxing Day: For example:
~I was honored to be part of two climatological bestsellers, either of which makes a fine Christmas present for the warm-monger or denier among your loved one. The first - Climate Change: The Facts - is just that, and is also available as part of our Big Climate Special. The second is my pushback against Big Climate enforcer Michael E Mann, whose suit against me for defamation is now in its fifth year at the DC Superior Court of Climate Apostasy. (See today's Washington Post for Jonathan Adler's annual update on the choked septic tank of DC justice.) "A Disgrace to the Profession": The World's Scientists - in Their Own Words - on Michael E Mann, His Hockey Stick, and Their Damage to Science, Volume One is my fun round-up of what real scientists think about the planet's most notorious cartoon climatologist.
Ross McKitrick, along with Steve McIntyre, did more to demolish the global-warming "hockey stick" than anybody else. As he wrote in Canada's Financial Post:
As Mark Steyn's excruciatingly convincing book A Disgrace to the Profession makes clear, about the only thing there's a real consensus on today is that, despite its prominence in government reports, the hockey stick was garbage.
As you know, Mann's plan was to sue me into silence. We're happy to say it's not working out quite as he intended. And, while we're waiting for Doctor Fraudpants to agree to discovery, "A Disgrace To The Profession": The World's Scientists - In Their Own Words - On Michael E Mann, His Hockey Stick, and Their Damage To Science: Volume One is a great way to prop up my end of this interminable case, and arm yourself with the facts to push back against the Big Climate enforcers. To order the book, simply click here.
~If you're seeking a wider-ranging Steyn read, don't miss the ultimate collection: The [Un]documented Mark Steyn. From Osama to Obama, guns to groping, Reagan to road signs, clones to drones, rock'n'crocs, it's all here, in one handy volume. As Rush said in the Limbaugh Letter, The [Un]documented Mark Steyn is a "must-read new book" from a guy who's "gutsy" and "courageous as hell". Right here at SteynOnline is the only place you can get a personally autographed copy. To order, simply click here.
~If you're unsure which books to get or what size T-shirt to order for your loved one, our SteynOnline gift certificates make a great seasonal gift, as well as an easy way to help support my end of the upcoming trial of the century. You can buy a gift certificate starting at $25 (and soaring way up from there), and let your friends and relatives load up with Steyn books and music and trial merchandise at their leisure. The gift certificates have no expiration date, so if, in ten years' time, your favorite nephew has a sudden yen for $100 worth of Clash of Sticks mugs, it'll still be valid.
The gift certificates are available online here. Alternatively, US and Canadian customers can purchase them - or any other product from the Steyn store - by calling (866) 799-4500 toll free from 8am to 3pm Eastern time on weekdays.
And if, after all that, you'd rather support my legal battle by buying a book or CD, well, we've got everything from "A Marshmallow World" to the post-American world. There's the paperback edition of my previous international bestseller After America, and all my other books, personally autographed to your loved one. There are stylish Viva Steyn! shirts for men and women, and lots of other SteynOnline tees, sweats and golf shirts, plus mugs and other gifts - and all the music your party needs, via CD or digital download.
And don't forget, there are savings galore if you buy The [Un]documented Mark Steyn or Feline Groovy or our other fine products as part of our exclusive SteynOnline special offers. It's easier than spending Black Friday getting ground into the dust by walker-wielding nonagenarian bargain-hunters at the mall - and one final reminder: don't forget that brand new daily TV show, helpfully called The Mark Steyn Show, starts on Monday December 5th.
