Codis began broadcasting “Hamp’s Corner of America” via Blog Talk Radio in June of 2014 and released his third book, The Episodic Thoughts of Hamp, or a Blogger’s 1999-2014 Perspective, shortly thereafter.

The author’s creativity is on full display as he has included a set of new characters, Kyle & Jamal Blogs. They are hip “flies on the walls” of Congress and others folk in the news. Their comments are amusing while listening to and reporting on the private discussion of lawmakers and other newsworthy folks.

The author takes you through 366 pages of a large collection of timeless articles written about relevant people and incidents in a given timeline. The people are noteworthy because of their employed or elected positions. The subject matter is a major interest to Mr. Hampton because of its relevance to his race, personal and business economic status in America.

The articles/blogs are written in an informative, differentiating viewpoint while pointing out (in the author’s opinion) the fallacies presented in the authorities statements or implantation of certain programs. In short, Mr. Hampton points out what was not said, should have been said, and goes further by suggested what should have been done.

Cover Draft 1 - Copy

George Bernard Shaw is quoted as saying “Youth is wasted on the young.” I understand the meaning but disagree with the statement. My reasoning is that at no time during one’s life are we more willing to listen to and accept different viewpoints than when our parents crowded our brains (Health, education, etc.) from toddler to teenager.

This is a story about a young black American soldier trying to find himself amid the chaos and obstacles that life throws at him. He is looking back at his life in order to look forward. Over this tour of duty, he will look to love, organization, and purpose in establishing who he is and where does he fit in the scheme of life itself. This is very personal story. Published at

For a copy of Unchon-ni, table-top paperback contact the author at with payment arrangements. The book is on sale at $10 each plus a small shipping fee.
