    1. You know those great ideas you have late at night when you re chatting with your friends after a few glasses of wine Well, if I had been involved in writing this book, here s how I think it might have got started Table is covered with the remains of what looks like a large and pleasant meal Animated conversation So don t you just hate those fascist science fiction writers who sell right wing ideologies to suggestible teens You know, Robert Heinlein and people like that I think Heinlein is of a [...]


    2. FULL AND FINAL REVIEWLord of the Swastika Like a thick layer of stinking hot asphalt poured out on a driveway, a thick layer of racism and jingoism coats every single page of this appalling novel spun from the cramped, warped mind of an upstart writer of science fiction, a scribbler by the name of Adolf Hitler What the hell was this clown thinking To write such garbage is an act of complete irresponsibility and an insult to the reading public We can only raise our eyes to heaven and give thanks [...]


    3. What happens when satire is misunderstood The point of satire is that it should be accessible on two levels simultaneously The surface text tells one story, the subtext tells another or to put it accurately, the subtext tells the exact opposite story of the surface text We might even say that the subtext reverses the polarity of the visible story, coinciding with it word for word, image for image, but in the wrong direction In this case, the wrong way is the right way Writers of satire are sure [...]


    4. Update I actually did end up finding a copy in a used bookstore for 1.49 or something and it had the cover I wanted and everything and it was awesome.I m freaking dying for a copy of this stupid book I ve wanted it for like a year now All the copies on are way too much money I actually asked Spinrad about it, but he didn t know where I could get a cheap one The hunt continues Let Adolph Hitler transport you to a far future Earth, where only FERIC JAGGER and his mighty weapon, the Steel Commande [...]


    5. Don t be fooled THE IRON DREAM is not the real deal Norman Spinrad s novel contains only a cheap copy of Adolph Hitler s masterpiece LORD OF THE SWASTIKA Hitler s work is heavily abridged here and, I must say, rather tamed too Some of the best bits are missing The situation in the Classification Camps is hardly elaborated and the pyres of decadent books gets no mention at all At least the glorious battle against the Zinc filth is left almost intact Chapter 12 How Feric Jaggar blows over and over [...]


    6. Nachdem ich mich mit eisernem Willen durch dieses Buch gek mpft habe, bleibt mir als Fazit nur zu sagen Adolf Hitler war ein hundsmiserabler Science Fiction Autor Das Nachwort von Homer Whipple fasst meine Einw nde gegen dieses Machwerk pr gnant zusammen Es ist vollkommen entbehrlich, dem noch etwas hinzuf gen zu wollen Aber den Leser f r dieses magere Fazit durch diesen Schund zu jagen, grenzt an Folter.


    7. This is a spoiler ific review So the premise is Hitler has a falling out with the Nazis in their infancy and emigrates to America where he paints pulp fiction covers and becomes a semi respected writer himself, spawning a Nazi inspired fashion trend with his penultimate novel, Lord of The Swastika the book within the book The Iron Dream, about the last true human state in a post apocalyptic world of mutants and mind controlling Dominators In the bookend world in which Hitler wrote, Germany and E [...]


    8. The Iron Dream is one of the true classics of science fiction It is a core work in what I can only describe as a microgenre of sorts that appeared during the late 60 s and early 70 s Science Fiction as seriously black humor and revolutionary social commentary The principle writers that I can recall offhand I make no claim to this list being exhaustive were Norman Spinrad and Harlan Ellison I Have No Mouth But I Must Scream,Dangerous Visions , but a number of other authors such as Larry Niven esp [...]




    9. Il est noter qu il s agit d une deuxi me dition, rajoutant l originale apparement une post face galement savoureuse Les seigneurs du svastika est donc le roman posthume d Hitler, honor d un prix Hugo Il nous narre les aventures de Feric Jaggar, d fenseur de la pure race humaine, pourfendeur des mutants, et lib rateur de la terre A un tout premier niveau, on retrouve l le h ros de sf classique, un peu analogue, par exemple aux loups des toiles de Edmond Hamilton enfin, c est le seul roman de ce t [...]


    10. I learned that a strong concept doesn t get you anywhere without strong execution The idea of satirizing the racism sexism solipsism of much Sword Sorcery and hard SF by writing a book as if by Adolph Hitler is a good one, but instead of actually critiquing such fiction by demonstrating its links to fascist ideology, Spinrad gets carried away satirizing Nazism itself, an absurdly easy target For example, rather than introducing a bunch of cardboard characters bearing the barely modified names of [...]

    12. Rating this book in terms of one to five stars is a complicated proposition Are you rating the entire package or the book within a book, Lord Of The Swastika, by Adolf Hitler On its own, Lord Of The Swastika is fairly wretched stuff formulaic, over enthusiastic pulp tripe.But packaged as a product of an alternate history, it becomes powerful It s the study of an embittered politician and possibly a latent homosexual, and a statement about mythic heroes as they apply to history With the shadow of [...]



    13. Ich werde mich h ten, hier einen psychologischen Abriss ber die S hne des Hakenkreuzes hinzubl ttern, sondern schreibe einfach frei von der Leber weg, was ich vom Autor Adolf Hitler halte Naja.Ich bin ja ein Trash Fan und sch me mich dessen nicht , deshalb klang dieses Buch vielversprechend Der Anfang und ca das erste Drittel fingen demnach auch wirklich toll an der stand und wehrhafte Feric Jaggar, der mit einem heroischen Ziel die Stadt Heldon betritt, um den ungesunden S mpfen zu entkommen, i [...]


    14. The Iron Dream is a book within a book It s a sci fi adventure novel framed by analysis of the text by a fictional critic The novel tells the story of a stalwart hero whose strength and charisma allow him to lead a post apocalyptic future nation against the evil mutant hordes threatening to wipe out humanity.It s a very familiar and even stereotypical premise for a sci fi novel What makes Iron Dream unique is that the novel is called Lord of the Swastika, written by Adolf Hitler The framing of t [...]


    15. The concept behind this book is great and made me laugh with glee Adolf Hitler as a hack science fiction writer Just too good The front even includes a list of Other Books by the Author that stars such alluring titles as Tomorrow, The World and The master Race , and a little biography of Hitler, the SF writer illustrator.The story itself purports to be a book called Lord of the Swastika, and the narrator is clearly a stand in for Hitler himself In fact, the early parts of the book mirror in some [...]


    16. The premise is interesting after a brief stint in radical politics, Hitler moves to New York, disenfranchised with the German political system yet not with the radical ideas of racial purity He becomes a hack illustrator, yet his biggest work is that of a science fiction book called Lords of the Swastika.Spinrad s writing is harsh, often hackish and unkempt just as a German speaking SciFi illustrator would His portrayal of a world 1000 years past the nuclear holocaust and protagonists and antago [...]


    17. Blog review from 2007, imported to 10 years later Norman Spinrad s The Iron Dream is a novel that requires some explanation, and a certain amount of apology It s the epitome of high concept,being the novel Adolf Hitler would have written if he d given up on radical politics, emigrated to the U.S.A in 1919 and become a hack author turning out pulp S.F by the yard To be strictly accurate, though, that novel Lord of the Swastika comprises about 95% of The Iron Dream, the rest being a minimalist fra [...]


    18. A novel length version of the Nice painting, eh You just enjoyed one of Adolf Hitler s artworks meme Spinrad s main aim is to both satirize and critically frame the fascistic tendencies, tropes, and underlying worldviews of epic fantasy and sci fi, especially the stuff that was popular at the time It s in the same vein as Verhoeven s Starship Troopers It tries to illustrate the dangers of the propagandist fiction by providing its staples alongside thematic and plot material that emphasize its re [...]


    19. I found this slightly hard work towards the end I love a good pastiche, but the language got a bit too repetitive, and I was bored by how easily everything went our hero s way I d have liked the novel shorter and the subsequent analysis longer Favourite thing the G ring expy.


    20. An interesting premise There is this weird guy Being Austrian, he fought for the Germans in WW I Shortly after, he got in touch with a motley crew of radical nationalists in Munich Recognizing the hopelessness of their cause, he emigrates to the United States in 1919, making a living as an SF illustrator, SF fanzine editor and author Shortly before his death in 1953, he publishes a novel, The Lord of the Swastika that posthumously would bring him the Hugo Gernsback award and an increasing popula [...]


    21. The Iron Dream has an irresistible hook What if Hitler became a science fiction writer instead of the Fuhrer Spinrad s clear purpose, confirmed explicitly in the fictional critical afterword to fictional Hitler s fictional novel, is to expose fascist sympathies in the most commercial strains of science fiction and fantasy writing.I must be reading the wrong or is it right science fiction, then, because I absolutely cannot buy Lord of the Swastika as work of traditional genre fiction, even in an [...]


    22. Spinrad s alternate history puts Adolf Hitler as a failed political agitator turned emigrant to the US, where his dream of becoming an artist led him to working on pulp SF magazines, which led to him writing SF The Iron Dream consists of Hitler s posthumous Hugo winning novel Lord of the Swastikas, featuring Feric Jaggar, Trueman, fighting his way through the legions of genetically impure mutants who populate a post apocalyptic landscape The narrative mirrors Hitler s rise to power in the real w [...]


    23. A novel within a novel, German emigre and pulp illustrator Adolf Hitler s The Lord of the Swastika nestles between a brief blurb and a concluding essay by Professor Homer Whipple, NYU, explaining the book s appeal in dark times when everywhere but Japan and the USA has gone commie Animating this book is a critique of pulp sci fi and fantasy Through the tumescent, squamous prose of The Lord of the Swastika Spinrad catalogues the fascistic attitudes inherent in many a heroic tale of triumph, chose [...]


    24. A Classic of American Fantasy Literature from Norman SpinradNorman Spinrad s The Iron Dream is a book which still confounds many of its fans and critics Some view it as an over the top critique of the worst aspects of fantasy and science fiction, as if it is The Lord of the Rings as channeled by LSD or some other mind altering drug Others, including yours truly, recognize this as a brilliant satire from Spinrad during one of the most productive phases of his literary career, critiquing Adolf Hit [...]


    25. This is a book within a book Author Norman Spinrad asked an excellent counter historical question what if Adolf Hitler, rather than going into German politics after the First World War, had instead moved to the USA and become a science fiction writer This book is the product of that fantasy the most popular science fiction book written by Hitler in that alternate universe.Spinrad demonstrates knowledge of period pulp sci fi than of German history, but since this is a fantasy of the deranged min [...]


    26. Read this book as a critique of the Golden Age of Science Fiction not as an alternative history The book takes as its premise that Adolf Hitler emigrated to the US after WWI and became a science fiction writer and illustrator The resulting novel within the novel, Lord of the Swastika, was written by this Hitler, and tells of the rise of Feric Jagger in the country of Helder, his work to achieve racial purity against mutants and Dominators, and his victory agains the country of Zind The real life [...]


    27. There s no way to explain this book Not really Simple premise Adolf Hitler emigrates to NYC in 1920 and becomes an illustrator for pulp sci fi stories He eventually writes his own series of bad sci fi novels that become cult favourites Other Novels You May Enjoy By This Author include Tomorrow the World and The Thousand Year Empire The Iron Dream is the text with critical analysis of Hitler s chef d oeuvre, Lords of the Swastika a 1930s Bad Sci Fi version of Mein Kampf and WW 2 The story is so b [...]
