About Stuart K. Hayashi, The Writer

At the behest of editors and publishers, I have written a new "About the Author" essay for myself.  This is what I have so far.


Stuart K. Hayashi is a freelance journalist residing in Mililani Town, Hawaii.  His original research played a part in publicly revealing that the documentary film Fahrenheit 9/11 cited what turned out to be a doctored newspaper page.  National news outlets eventually reported on this revelation.  Mr. Hayashi’s role in the investigation is acknowledged by name in the 2005 revised paperback edition of the New York Times bestseller Michael Moore Is a Big Fat Stupid White Man (New York, NY:  HarperCollins) by David T. Hardy and Jason Clarke, pp. 139-140. 

Hayashi’s own writings have appeared in the Honolulu Advertiser and on the news analysis website Ideas in Action (formerly Tech Central Station). 

He also contributed these chapters to nonfiction anthologies:

* "Human Cloning Is Ethical,"  Genetic Engineering:  Opposing Viewpoints, ed. Louise I. Gerdes (San Diego, CA:  Greenhaven Press, 2004).

 * "Atlas Shrugging Throughout History and Modern Life," Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”:  A Philosophical and Literary Companion, ed. Edward W. Younkins, (Hampshire, England:  Ashgate, 2007).

Most recently, his essay on the philosophy of fiction has been published in Scout & Engineer, Issue No. 2.
