Ray Bradbury wrote a book entitled Fahrenheit 451 in 1953. The characters live in a society where censorship is prevalent, and the citizenry learn only from watching television.

Fahrenheit 451 is the temperature at which books burns, according to Ray Bradbury. Well, a group of authors, activists, civic dissenters wondered… what is the temperature that IGRONANCE burns?

That is why The Firestarter Press is here. This publishing company is dedicated to distributing the works of authors who want to burn the ignorance, keep the agitation active in the hopes that we will all demand more from our government, our leaders, our society our selves.

The works published here will not be timid. The works published here will not be for the faint of heart. The works published are not for those who think “sit” is an active verb. This is a place where love, politics, religion, culture, the arts, family will be written about in the active, in the affirmative, in the powerful.

It is time to not just do one thing, but many, to save our lives. We deserver better love. We deserve better communities. We deserve better government. We deserve a better Earth. We deserve a better relationship with God.

To make those ideals a reality… we MUST burn the ignorance from our souls, our minds, our hearts, our eyes and ears and wipe the slate clean. We must become new forces of change to inspire and implement a new humanity.
