Five Star Review

Town 20: The Second American Revolution by Timothy A. Freriks is a dystopian tale and a social-political commentary on the state of inequality and its impact on America’s future. Seventy years from now, America has devolved into its polar opposite as an arbitrary corporation takes control of everything. The majority of the populace serves

The Unity, and they are designated into numbered towns where each renders a specific product or service. While the few privileged of the ruling class enjoy a life of luxury from the labors of the many, they have overlooked a weak spot in their armor. Town 20 is responsible for the IT functions of The Unity, and a citizen named Markus 4573, a brilliant programmer who has deservedly ascended to a most critical position in The Unity, will soon become instrumental in bringing down an oppressive system upon his discovery of anomalies.

Much like 1984 and Fahrenheit 451, Freriks’s Town 20 is a grim story that tells of a future in which something goes horribly wrong and throws society into a system that leads to oppression as a solution to controlling the citizenry. This tale may appear in the literary/sci-fi canon as a study in comparative dystopian fiction. It has its parallels when it comes to using technology as an element in wielding absolute power. It’s a cautionary tale, one that is likely to happen if we do not guard the very rights that democracy ensures. Town 20 is disturbingly simple, yet it revels in the power of its simplicity.

This is a must-read for fans of dystopian science fiction.

The UnWoke Agenda

A Hilarious Look at the Absurdity of The Woke Contagion

Charlie Myers couldn’t find an agent for his action/adventure/thriller novels, so he became an agent to find out why.

The answer is as old as time: the need for weak people to join a team that would take them in.

The UnWoke Agenda hysterically tears apart the woke doctrines, one absurd belief at a time. Charlie Myers wrote a ‘parallel universe’ novel to battle the WOKE Contagion. However, his research inadvertently exposes an evil plot designed by some very dangerous people.
