America's Second Revolution

A two novel dystopian series set in a near-future Philadelphia.

Is a story dystopian when the warning it conveys is destined to come to pass?

Two decades after the Wave of Destruction that nearly destroyed America, the United States is no longer recognizable. Dictator Joseph Stoner has made of it a society in his own image. A society where, though there is no freedom, there is also no opposition to his tyrannical rule. The weekend sabbath, where food, beer, and weed are handed out freely, has replaced self-will, disapproval, and even ambition in the soul of Americans.

When three kids, Zammi, his sister Sydney, and their friend Straz sneak into the forbidden structure that was once Philadelphia's Parkway Central Library, they realize how much has been lost. Not just gadgets and other possessions of a once wealthy nation, but a sense of community, truth, and freedom as well.


With their interest peaked they begin a quest for knowledge that leads them into a partnership with Jeffrey Sullivan – the last old person in America, Lissa – the Voice of Stoner, and Eddy – a skinny black dude full of brains and brashness, and soon a movement is born.

Determined to make things right, they create a clandestine organization called the Liberation and embark on a risky plan to overthrow Stoner. 

Read, A Road To Redemption, to see what becomes of our heroes and the thousands of liberators they recruit to take back America. Be prepared though. At times this is a tough read told from the not-so-refined mouth of Zammi himself.


America's Second Revolution

Part Two

Sorry, but you'll have to wait for a blurb of part two. I wouldn't want to be a spoiler.


Suffice it to say, a revolution is a difficult thing, and even the best laid and intentioned plans don't go as expected.


Even in a science fiction series.
