Hack the System with Acts of Creative Rebellion

The Last American Dragon
Illustrated allegory. “… will draw you in and carry you to another time, where you will learn about the three dragons (Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness) Brothers from another land, they made the treacherous Atlantic passage to America, carrying the same hopes and dreams as the early settlers. Today, the single remaining dragon struggles for survival. A modern tale, written in the classic short story style, is both entertaining and thought-provoking. Subtle references are made regarding The Great Society, Roe vs. Wade, Environmentalism, and even a negligent Press.” This description is no longer on the listing but was when I posted this book before.


The Coming Flood (A prediction for the future.)

Genesis to Armageddon and Beyond

Nature Survival, War, and other Hardship

A Beauty among the Thorns
“the story of one young woman’s journey from her hometown in Munich, Germany to captivity in the Nazi-run Dachau Labor Camp where she serves as a gravedigger while she is imprisoned.”

Blood of Vipers
Shorter, about 100 pg. “When fighter pilot Cal Jameson is shot down in enemy territory at the end of the war, his only desire is to find his way back to American lines. But as Cal hides from a Waffen-SS death squad, he stumbles into a family of German refugees fleeing Soviet shock troops. Soon, he finds himself in an uncertain role as the family's protector. Together, they must stay alive while under attack from partisans, Russian soldiers, and the last, dying struggles of the Nazi regime, which is determined to throw back the enemy, even if it means the final destruction of the German people.”

Defying Darkness
“During the Nazi reign of terror, slave labor and starvation are a way of life in the Warsaw Ghetto. Anna Lederman's family has been decimated. With nothing left to lose but her life, she joins a ragtag band of rebels fighting for redemption and revenge against their oppressors. This is a fictional account of actual events. It is a story of passion, of love triumphing over hate, of hope conquering despair, of good defeating evil.”

An Owl's Whisper
“Eva Messiaen is a convent school girl in 1940s Belgium when Hitler’s invasion and occupation eclipses Europe in a black shadow. To the girls around her, she’s a beacon of light, but they don’t know her dark secret. When an atrocity shatters her world and spurs her to strike back at the Nazis, she has the moxie to set their web of evil ablaze. But does she have the wits to escape its flames unscorched?”

This is Adam (The Lightwood History Collection)

Slade Cooper - Joe's Valley (Rocky Mountain Adventure)

Politics, Terrorism, and Intrigue/Conspiracy

“A rise in stroke-like cases has CDC analyst Mike Shafer on alert. Patients in every demographic in the Great Plains area, from toddlers to healthy adults to the elderly, are succumbing to rapid deterioration - and death.”

My Stranger
“What if someone gave you a dangerous gift? And what if that gift was a lost novel from the Great Depression and an old man's dying request that somehow, some way you had to find a way to publish it and warn people of what was coming? MY STRANGER is the strange story of Joyce, a failed writer living in New York during 9/11, struggling to come to terms with the gift Percy had left her when she was only twenty years old, only to find after thirty years that his tale was true.”

Home Grown (Terror Strikes From Within)
“takes readers on an exciting journey through Russia, Iran, Venezuela and America as the charismatic Grand Ayatollah Zanjani awakens a cell of U.S. Jihadists, and orchestrates an attack to rival 9-11.“

A Thousand Years of Darkness: a Thriller
“...based on actual current events. Police Detective James Nail is wounded and his daughter murdered in an attack that also kills 'right-wing' TV personality Jerry Baer. As Nail and Baer's producer, Sharon Lowenthal, team up to track down the shooters, they discover a conspiracy that leads to an international cartel of 'One Worlders' and may implicate the President... Falsely accused of terrorism, they must keep one step ahead of Homeland Security to stay alive, bring down the traitors, and save the nation.” A reviewer calls it “a fast-paced read of the near future looming ahead if we don't appreciate our country and constitution.”

Absolute Measures
“In deadly race against time, both must choose between their ties to Yasin - and their duty to prevent an atrocity that will plunge the world into chaos. …a heart-pounding, high-concept, prophetic thriller that draws on Humphrey Hawksley's years of experiences as an Asian correspondent for the BBC to tell a powerful story of family, terrorism, and global politics.”

Black Harvest (The PROJECT)
“James Campbell is the world's leading expert on crop viruses. …His discovery puts him dead center in the cross hairs of a conspiracy bent on world domination. … They uncover a deadly plan of corporate greed that will cause millions to die if it succeeds. Director Elizabeth Harker must forge a dangerous alliance to try and stop the plot and avoid certain war with Russia. All the while, a high-placed American traitor does his best to sabotage the Project at every turn...and time is running out.”

Collapse, Post-Apocalypse, Speculative Futures

Never Too Far
“A harrowing story of love and survival. In a future of scarce resources, where the possession of gas and diesel is punishable by death, a teenage boy and a pregnant girl must save their impoverished family. They risk their lives on a terrifying journey to sell stolen fuel on the black market.”

The Zul Enigma
“a futuristic thriller fused in reality, seamlessly weaves New Age beliefs with hard, scientific facts. Set in 2068 it follows a quest to expose the perpetrator behind a cataclysmic event that occurs on 21 December 2012, end of the Mayan calendar, that changes the world forever. …Set against a backdrop of climate change, overpopulation, world war, alien visitations, presidential plots, global deception and a new world order…”

Escape (Gone World)
Shorter. “What we feared happened, World War III happened, Nuclear war happened. In its aftermath the world has been left in rubble, with pocket of resistance fighters still fighting the good fight against the invaders, the Sino-Russian Alliance. Nick and Tina, two rebels, just having escaped an ambush, need to find a way to escape the area cordoned of by the invaders. Will they get out?

The setting: a Senior in High School. who is smart, ambitous, popular, outgoing has a sense of doomsday events. His feelings and senses are coming true as the days go....The world is in ultimate chaos! World War 3 is here!! Everything starts in his hometown!“ Does not sound particularly well written but…

Kayro's Key
“The year is 2080 and island of Puerto Rico and the whole world have reached a point of near extinction for all living things. Kayro is the last surviving golden coqui and he has a mission. Come with Kayro and his followers and see if Puerto Rico and the world can be saved.”

After the Flood and Other Stories
Book of 4 stories, one of which is: "Seeds of Insurrection" –“explores a futuristic vision (not so far in the future and, perhaps, entirely plausible) of an America occupied by hostile forces. Set on the high plains of north Texas, the reader has a stadium view of the battle to determine the future of the free world. What really matters in the struggle for liberty?”

More Sci-Fi-or-Fantasy-ish

Harvester: Ascension
End of world sci-fi. “As an object roughly the size of the moon is discovered hurtling toward Earth, hysteria brews and doomsday prophets call forth their sermons of death and destruction, but is this “meteor” what it seems?”

The Blaster
“Power went out across the globe and never came back on. People adapted, eventually. Some, like Lehman and his family, had foresight and banded together with others and formed new types of communities. Lehman and two other men had the idea to network with other communities, so they ventured out on a road trip around the southeast. What they encounter will not only change their idea of what is possible, but change the new world itself. …features glowing energy beings, ravenous hellhounds, and the most valuable prop in scifi movie history.”

“Edmund moves across the desolate landscape lumbering towards home. He arrives, overjoyed to discover that his family is dead – they did not have to live through The Fall, did not have to fight cannibals and bandits, did not have to survive the apocalypse. They did not suffer. Like millions of others they got caught up in pandemic flu and died. Satisfied, after nine-years of traveling, Edmund can get on with what is left with his life. He finds a local cluster of fellow survivors, including a friend from his past, and joins the difficult task of rebuilding a world undone by disaster… His comfort is short-lived. Not long after settling into his new home, he discovers that he has become unstuck in time. Through an unknown mechanism, he oscillates between past and future, hope and despair. He rushes to determine how this is happening, and to do something - anything - to save the world he knew, while contemplating whether what he is experiencing is real or madness brought on by a decade of looming extinction.”

A Game Before the Darkness
Youth, dystopia. High reviews. “Convinced that it has some unknown meaning, Topin sets out to find the truth, only to discover that the Game is much more important than he could have suspected: it holds the only means of preventing humanity's extinction. As Topin is hunted by the society he is trying to save, he faces a journey to the farthest reaches of his world, and into the secret depths of its history.”
