Juan Batista is the pen name of a professor of American Indian and Latin American history. I write books that are Indigenous Mexican Latino-Indian Tribal Centered alternate history or science fiction, and occasionally horror or fantasy.
Coming in Fall 2012
It is 1864. The Confederate Secret Service will win the Civil War the only way the Confederacy could ever have hoped to win…by terrorism! Almost 150 years before 9-11, Confederate agents carry out biological warfare on northern cities.
For three generations, the Confederacy’s ever tightening dictatorship uses terror and repression against Blacks, Natives, Mexicans, Jews, Catholics, Mormons, Germans, Cajuns, and women to stay in power.
But the day of reckoning is coming. The Confederate alliance with “our beloved brother Adolf” will only bring disaster…
Coming in 2013:
It is 1848. The newly victorious American government decides to annex all of Mexico, and its population, three-quarters the size of the US’s.
It is just a matter of time until the United States of Indo-Mexica-America. It will be the most powerful, prosperous, free, and righteous nation the world has ever seen…
A nation of Spanglish-speaking Americans…

The End of Texas
by Juan Batista
A bumbling Texas governor flirts with secession. Far right militias flock to his call and prepare for violence to bring about independence. A backlash from Indigenous Mexicans in Texas calls for the Aztlan Now movement, Mexicans wanting to secede FROM Texas and stay loyal to the US. Militias, Brown Power people, prison gangs, police, and FBI clash. From this comes new Mexican-majority US states.

An interesting article about a lesser known episode.
Occupy LOL Street Volume 1
on May 10, 2012
I appreciated this book for its look at the issues. And I'm someone who is quite annoyed with the lolcats meme. I expected to dislike this but was pleasantly surprised. Having the story acted out by animals had the same effct as Animal Farm or Maus. I'm not comparing the book to those in terms of being a classic, but it is a nice little entetaining and uplifting story. A good introduction to Occupy as well as a way to cheer on those who already agree.

Just how racist is this book?
1. One racist epithet for Natives after another.
2. One racist stereotype after another.
And it never lets up.
Consider yourselves warned...
One star only because I can't give zero.
