Earlier this week, former FBI director James Comey published his new book, A Higher Loyalty. The book is stuffed with awkward revelations about his interactions with U.S. President Donald Trump.

The team at Day 6 wanted to know what other bombshell books might be coming in 2018. So we asked our resident satire writer Aaron Hagey-MacKay to track down an industry insider who could give us the scoop.

He found just the guy in Randall Saint-Karl, who works at the publishing company Vox Nauseum.
