My critically acclaimed dystopian political trilogy, beginning with A Mound Over Hell (“1984 meets Shoeless Joe”) and A Fastball for Freedom (“dystopian Field of Dreams”), starts in 2098 following America’s defeat in World War Three by the radical Islamic Empire. Surrounded, the country is governed by a benevolent dictatorship The Family, led by the enigmatic Grandma. Religion and patriotism are banned. Social media is outlawed under the Anti-Narcissism Laws. And baseball, representing the former world power America, faces its final season ever playing in Amazon Stadium.
Yet ordinary people caught up in extraordinary times become heroes and demonstrate that there is more that unites us than divides us.
