The following story is true.
It takes place in a parallel universe—
one tick away from your own.

The longest-running democracy in the history of mankind is in peril. Protesters, rioters, and armed gangs fill the streets. Racial tensions have reached a violent apex. A deadly virus, which has killed a quarter-million Americans in just eight months, continues to ravage the nation as the result of government failure—with no end in sight. The results of the recent general election, which saw the greatest voter turnout in history, is in question. And the President, Montgomery J. Fox, has just declared a National State of Emergency—activating the National Guard to quell the turmoil. The nation is divided. Loyalists to the President are hardened and armed to the teeth. Citizens who oppose him are considered lawless dissenters. And those in the middle are simply trying to survive—both the encroaching civil war and a killer virus.

The world watches on in horror as a once-great light is slowly snuffed out.

About the Author

Jim Mitchem is a copywriter who found his way into advertising via a dirt path on the outskirts of society. Born with no obvious talent, Jim began writing at a young age as a way to lasso the stories that ran circles in his mind. Dismissed as folly when he shared them, he gave up writing for drinking at the age of 17. After a stint in the USAF, and armed only with a pen and looseleaf paper bound by elastic, Jim meandered through the US until he awoke in a gutter in New York City in 1991. His life and his writing have improved significantly since giving up booze. And while he doesn't think that's a coincidence, he does consider it damn ironic.

He still has stories running circles in his mind.
