Editorial Reviews


"Kendall is adept at maintaining a suspenseful narrative. As the novel progresses and the stakes rise, it becomes ever more difficult to put the novel down."
- Alex Kurtagic - Occidental Observer Magazine

From the Author

Since its first publication over fifteen years ago, Hold Back This Day (as one well-known white rights activist has proclaimed) has become the modern-day successor to George Orwell's 1984. High praise indeed, but if I may be forgiven a touch of immodesty, not without merit. For just as Orwell's novel spotlighted the ills of his time, most notably growing left-wing totalitarianism, my novel was the first to spotlight the very real modern-day threat of literal white racial extinction. True, Jean Raspail wrote of massive non-white invasion into Europe, but nowhere was his novel about the end of the white race itself. 

No, it was not until Hold Back This Day became the first novel to cross that literary threshold that readers got an inside glimpse at what it might be like to see the death throes of our people on a global scale, on every continent, in every country. And everywhere we look today, we see it happening. Governments are demanding that white nations be flooded with non-whites, just as they do in Hold Back This Day. From there, it is only a short step to the founding of a literal World Gov, and the end of the white race. 

Unless...we fight back. Unfortunately, today's so-called white rights activists are more akin to greed-driven televangelists than crusaders. In fact, I touch upon that in my latest novel, Eternity Beach (the closest thing to an autobiography I may ever write) where my main character minces no words as to what he thinks about our real-life "leaders". So beware - you just might find someone you know. But it too, like Hold Back This Day, is a battle cry for our people. It's also an exciting, very human tale, that explores the concept of life-after-death that I guarantee you have never seen before - either in novels or in film. 

And if today you're hearing more and more about millions of low-skilled jobs being lost to automation, I novelized that idea a decade and a half ago, in my novel The Towers of Eden. Set thirty years from now, its story is fast becoming today's headlines. Together, all three of my novels push the outer boundaries of cutting-edge thought, which I guarantee no other novelist, in or out of the white rights movement, ever has. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more

I seldom come across a novel that actually makes me think, no matter how entertaining it might otherwise be. But Mr. Kendall's "Hold Back This Day" is certainly one of the rare exceptions. As far as I know, a story about the white race teetering on the brink of extinction has never been written, at least none that I've ever heard of. Anyway, Kendall does pretty well with the concept, considering how un-PC his subject matter is. Jeff Huxton, the main character,is well-drawn and interesting, a man desparately trying to accept a world of so-called "racial harmony" when all around him he sees nothing of the kind. Almost everyone else is a hodge-podge of inter-racial breeding, a kind of tan everyman, programmed by a century of government brainwashing to deny that whites had ever done any good in the world. Jeff believes it too, up until he finds evidence that proves otherwise. From there on, he's a troubled man in a very ugly and unpleasant world, a world full of historical half-truths purposely intended to destroy any last shred of racial pride among whites.

I won't say anymore from here, other than the story is a fast read, without bogging down into all the political/ideological stuff that it easily could have. It's basically an adventure story, about one man's fight to save his son. Huxton himself makes a good, if somewhat reluctant hero. A few scenes moved me deeply, especially near the end. Not many books I've read can do that. If just for the off-beat theme, "Hold Back This Day" is definitely worth the time.

I'm not the kind who likes to give reviews, but after reading this book I feel like I should. As a person who keeps up on current events, I have noticed many similarities between the book and life today, even though the story takes place a little over 100 years from now. Similarities such as: forced racial integration, political correctness, movies and news stories deliberately instilling a collective guilt on white people, undefended borders in the USA and Europe, TV and Hollywood making films to induce miscegenation between whites and non whites, magnifying hate crimes committed by whites and minimizing hate crimes committed against whites in an effort to instill even more guilt. Just as in the book, there seems to be a genocidal plan against people of European decent, and what I got out of this book most was the urgency of it and the finality of extinction. As with most books it starts off slow and wordy, but very soon you will be in the thick of it and by the end you wont be able to stop reading it. It becomes very exciting near the end and I'll stop here so not to ruin it for you. But I will say that I didn't expect to read what eventually happened, and for that I thank the author, and thanks for writing this very important and entertaining book! Buy this book you will not be disappointed!

Very intriguing sci-fi novel. Possibly the only one of it's kind out there. Knew before buying it that it was not a prepper novel (which I didn't want) but was about a possible apocalyptic future for Western Civilization.

Very well paced with good characters and plot. Also I think the subject matter is quite interesting and is certainly a well thought out possible future. The political aspects of the Novel are very well done and it's one of the few, if not the only, novel that discusses a very possible future for mankind. Certainly this is a lot more probable than those feel-good futures like "Star Trek", where all problems will go away or the typical bleak ending (Zombie Apocalypse types) or where somebody's marines end up invading New York & the rest of the USA.

Spoiler Alert From Here On ===
However, as good as the political predictions of this novel are, the scientific part of it is horrible. You basically have a single guy working alone in a country that has no space program, develop an interstellar space cruiser of large size. Also he develops a space shield that allows an organization, which has no space capability to build some craft to attack and sucessfully invade large colonies of a space faring race.

It's as if some inventor, working in land-locked Bolivia in 1940, developed plans for a super-battleship + aircraft carrier. Bolivian agents then carried it to the coast, assembled it, and then took out the entire US Navy in WW-II. The author needs to get a little background in technology, how things develop, are designed, and built, before dealing with space sci-fi. Perhaps read "Encounter with Tiber" by Buzz Aldrin to get some background into the effort for an early spacefaring civilization to build an interstellar spacecraft.

In the sci-fi publishing industry there exists a uniform understanding of how economic, ethnic and gender issues must be presented in writing. This view is monolithic and brooks no dissent. It states that the future all stories should aim for is a multicultural nirvana. In time all peoples will be equal, educated and healthy a la Star Trek. If there must be a negative role in this society it will be played by a white male (preferably Southern). Publishers are near-unanimous on this and anyone wishing to submit anything to the contrary, no matter how well crafted, need not apply.
Enter Ward Kendall. He has presented us with a long-overdue what-if scenario and directs our thoughts toward a profound problem. What if, he asks, this harmonic multicultural paradise does not come heralded by trumps of glory and songs of praise but with truncheons, tears, blood and bullets? What if the techniques used to usher in the new age are not those of Gandhi, Buddha and Christ but rather of the SS and the NKVD? Kendall has painted a world suffering under stringent uniformity and failed tyrannical policies; a world, sadly, not too far fetched nor too unbelievable.
If we want our future to be one of freedom and happiness then we best realize that there are no views, no positions, no mores so holy and venerable that they should not, from time to time, be held up to deep questioning and review. If we wish to hold back the day envisioned and illuminated by the author then we can start by slaughtering a few gluttonous sacred cows that've grown too big for the corral.
Ward Kendall provides us with more than a fast-paced, well-written action adventure (though it is that). He has delivered a provocative work--more thinker than thriller--which will linger in your thoughts long after the back cover has been closed.
