The Takeover – 2071

2113:  An Oral History of the Last God

Published by Subtopian Press

Trevor D. Richardson, founder of the Subtopian Press, commented, ” With little to go on and almost no prompt, twenty-five authors teamed up anonymously to offer their concepts of future history and how society fell. As themes began to show through, a story took shape entirely on its own and it became this book. This is not an anthology or a collection, it is a novel with more than two dozen authors, a cohesive narrative about the people, places, and strife that led to the fall of the world as we know it.”

“The Takeover -2071” is a chapter excerpt from the first book in my trilogy AFTER SHOCKS. The oppressive government, the National Association of Patrolling Officers, on the island of Domicile enacts a new ruling called the Anti-Conception Law in an effort to curtail population growth. Adhara takes her blind, thirteen-year-old daughter to the hospital to have the procedure only to learn some shocking news!

    This first book in the Dana Greer mystery series creates a believably conflicted female Catholic detective. Dana Greer must strive to solve the murder of a child against the backdrop of a wonderfully-rendered 1950s Maine island society. Issues of good and evil, of religion and hypocrisy, of truth and lies between men and women, enrich the novel. We can look forward to future entries in the series with delighted anticipation.
