America, 2028. The War for Equity has begun!
This is the story of everyday people caught in the crossfire between idealism and technology.
A new bureaucracy called the Historical Reparations Administration oversees enforcement of restitution for colonialism and slavery.
Supercomputers scan old documents while drones monitor both Debtors and Beneficiaries from coast to coast. Reality TV shows and religious cults help the nation atone for its sins.
Reparations USA is the frantically inventive future history that creates an entire world, complete with its own slang, zany tech, and a diverse cast of sympathetic characters.
Philip Wyeth’s exuberant debut novel sets the stage for this timely series which is full of heart... humor... and total surveillance!
This is Book One of the Reparations series. 37,000 words.
About the Author
Inspired by such unique writers as Heinrich von Kleist, Ambrose Bierce, and Joseph Conrad, Wyeth believes his imaginative novels will resonate with fans of Philip K. Dick, Rich Larson, John Varley, and Neal Stephenson.
Also a lifelong fan of heavy metal music and its many sub-genres, Wyeth strives to infuse his writing with comparable levels of intensity, independence, and larger-than-life visions.
