Cape Cod Times Sunday, September 29, 2002  Review of After Kamisiyah (Harris I. Baseman, author, iUniverse, publisher, ISBN 0-595-23743-6, 386 pages)by Melanie Lauwers, Book Editor

Harwich resident Harris Baseman has written a novel as timely as this evening’s news but set in Iraq during the Gulf War. Lt. Clarence Davenport’s work destroying a munitions depot near Kamisiyah, Iraq, has implications for world peace and the health and well-being of American troops when the result is the destabilization of the U.S. government.
Based on the actual demolition of the Kamisiyah depot, Baseman includes an informative foreword with background information on the depot and its possible crucial place in understanding Gulf War Syndrome. The book is dedicated to all those U.S. and coalition soldiers who participated in the liberation of Kuwait.

They said the following, “The Accidental President. iUniverse, 2004.

The "crime of the century" elevates the Secretary of Education to the office of President of the United States, who must informed an outraged nation that the suspected mass assassin, thought to have killed himself, is instead on the loose. Now, the world's most sought after fugitive ends up in an Al Qaeda training camp where he devises another plan to kill President Ben Silver and attack the United States.






After Kamisiyah-Best Book in a Long Time,


PaulSchneider (Stoughton, MA United States) -

I wasn't sure what to expect from this author's first book, but it was terrific. I lost alot of sleep because I could not put the book down once I began to read it at night. It had so much suspense I was disappointed the book had to end. The ending was not as exciting as the rest of the book, but overall I give it 5+ stars. P.S.Very timely reading with the Iraqi war.



After Kamisiyah-Incredible Crystal Ball,


Harriet W. Goodman (Key Biscayne, Florida) -

No reviewer has recognized the author's amazing, in fact frightening ability to have sensed the horrors ahead: loony marksmen blowing up the world, totally corrupt Washington politicians, our country ankle deep in a tar thick river of oil and blood. The book makes the Sopranos read like a bedtime story.



The Accidental President                                                                                                     By John Peckham, Author, "The Wisdom of Recovery “The Accidental President" is the perfect sequel to "After Kamisiyah", Harris Baseman's exciting first literary triumph. I couldn't put down Kamisiyah and I can say the same for his new heart pounding novel "Accidental President"! It's a marvel how Baseman builds on world events and captures universal fears in such an absorbing way. "Accidental President" starts with a huge surprise followed by dozens more! I'm buying several copies to give to my friends!



You will not be able to put it down!, P. Smith-Boston, MA. November 28, 2007-- A great read and I had a hard time putting it down once I started. While it is fictional the book makes you think about the current world situation and how versions of this story could actually happen. As I finished a chapter I wanted to immediately go on to the next one to find out how the story unfolds and that places this book on my best seller list.



The Dead Presidents Club


Unique approach to addressing serious issues.,


P. Smith (Boston, MA) -

This is a complete departure from his other books. It is a clever approach to thought provoking subjects of our times. Makes you sit back and think about whether our current and future politicians will ever get it right and get the job done. A great read and one I highly recommend.




A good summer read and some provocative thoughts about issues of the day, By Richard Perras, Boston, MA


Interested in immigration reform and global warming? The author presents these and other issues in the interesting context of a lively discussion between the likes of Theodore Roosevelt and Thomas Jefferson. The book combines a somewhat whimsical review of the personalities of the famous and departed along with provocative thoughts about issues facing the United States today.
