Overview

As quietly chilling as tomorrow's headlines, Head Rites explores the implications of federal legislation that forces citizens of the nation's major population centers to purchase a resident permit in order to remain in the city they call home.

Not since the ruling on Roe v. Wade has American society been so disrupted and divided as when the Supreme Court upholds the controversial environmental legislation known as the Head Rights law—a law that forces residents of major population centers to purchase a residency permit or move elsewhere. Told through the lives of three couples with dreams of family, career and stardom, Head Rites moves from Wyoming to Nashville to Boston in search of answers that will allow Bobby, Sharon, Zeb and Alex, Gwendolyn and Benton to pursue their hopes, dreams, careers and relationships.

As a former Chief Law Enforcement Officer, I found this book quite believable in all it's implications for our future. Brilliant writing, brilliant concept, believable characters, and some of the most awesome possible future fiction I have ever read! The most gripping aspect of this book is the very REAL potential for the events described to happen in American society within our own lifetime! An excellent piece of literary work which appeals to ANY serious reader, despite his or her usual preference for subject matter. I give this work my highest recommendation and anxiously await the remaining books in the series.

When I read the reviews of this book, I didn't expect to become so involved with the characters. What real, interesting people they are. It's a love story, it's science fiction, it's social commentary. Head Rites is a book that has something for many readers of different genres. I can't wait to see the next books the authors have promised on this subject.

Science fiction/mystery/romance/environmental fiction all rolled into one. A superb novel by new authors. Believable situations and characters. I eagerly await the sequel. Sure to be a hit, and a movie. A must read.

Head rites tells the story of the future of our country, but its not a future that I want to live to see. I kept thinking of this book long after I finished the final page. Which in my book a day life doesnt happen often.

What a great book! Truesdale was right! The editor of the SFWA Bulletin said this is a radical social experiment in creeping social engineering. This may be science fiction, but it too easily could become real. The authors have done their homework on environmental policies and conditions and outlined one possible scary future if we don't take care of the planet. The characters are realistic and the premise could be.
