Man at Large: A Red Pill Science Fiction Romance

George Donnelly
10

Women rule. Uncommitted men rot in prison awaiting selection by overworked, love-starved spinsters. 

Cocksman Nick Chesterton just got dumped. With a return to Broseg No. 34 in the offing, he publicly ridicules his ex and finds himself a fugitive from the Femforcers on a sexist meme charge.

But the lovelorn ladies of war-torn Eritrea liked his meme. They invite Nick to visit their African nation, select a bride, or three, and live happily ever after. Or so they say.

Facing six weeks in Femforcer sexcamp, Nick must make a life-altering decision between the loss of his sexual identity and the risk of multiple marriages in a jihadi war zone.

How much courage do you need to survive betrayal, war, and loss?



Adara and her friends infiltrate Agro headquarters ready to free the Meeks. With only a handful of allies by their side, Adara soon learns that these mysterious adversaries are more powerful and cruel than she ever imagined. Despite overwhelming odds, she has to summon up all of her strength and power to destroy the Agro army.

As filthy battles ensue and loved ones perish, Adara must sing The Song of Forgetfulness one last time if she is to save not only the Meeks, but all the folk of NotSoGreatBritAlbion, from a life of slavery and despair.

But there is a traitor trying to sabotage their mission. Someone who is in league with the enemy. Someone close to home. 

‘Exciting, fun, unique, and creative. The author is truly a gifted writer to be able to whip up something like this. Easily a must-read for dystopian adventure lovers out there.’

It’s a sickly wind that blows. Ash black and full of menace. Agros. Lots of them

Feet pounding, shaking the earth, drawing closer.

An unseen enemy equipped with tech we know nowt about.

All I have is my voice and the power of friendship.

I must act now before the Agro menace snuffs us out for good.

If you enjoy reading books that are different, have a strong storyline with offbeat characters, and quirky language, then you will love A Silence Heard. It is a great addition to the dystopian/Sci-fi/cli-fi tradition of authors such as, Suzanne Collins, Veronica Roth, Bella Forest, Patrick Ness, Ursula K. Le Guin and Margaret Atwood.


A synthetic stem cell called a biomite can replace any cell in your body. They are infallible. As our percentages of biomites rise, we become stronger, we become smarter and prettier. We become better.


Can we resist the temptation of perfection? Are we still human when our bodies are replaced by synthetic replications?


If biomites exist, laws will be imposed to prevent excess and abuse. Those with 50% biomites will no longer be considered human. 


They will be halfskin.


Halfksin: The Vignettes is a compendium of short stories found throughout the Halfskin trilogy, a harbinger of what humanity’s pursuit of perfection may look like.

 

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR


WHAT GENRE DO YOU PREFER?

Science fiction, dystopia, technothriller and, to some extent, young adult. I do have a series of novellas in the vampire genre. Yeah, I know. Doesn’t fit. That character, Drayton, came out of nowhere when I was at a community theatre production of Dracula. I figured that an immortal vampire would more likely become compassionate and wise as he grew older. The technothriller Halfskin is similar to vampires in that technology promises immortality and complete control of our bodies. But then what?


WHY A SYNTHETIC STEM CELL?

Organic life is too nilly-willy. We’re limited by our DNA. Give it to the scientists to perfect this vehicle that carries us around because it is a vehicle. If we no longer have organic bodies, if every one of our cells is replaced by something manmade all the way down to the neurons and synapses, then what are we? What if our world is just a computerized environment, ala The Matrix? Would we know the difference? Look, we’re printing organs today. I’m not, but someone is. Some genius has figured out how to push play and heart or liver or kidney comes down the chute. Halfskin takes the idea into the distant future and explores whether this leads to more happiness or just more of the same. Because more money, more problems.


DO YOU HAVE ANOTHER JOB BESIDES AUTHOR?

Day job, I’m a college horticulture teacher. Writing is a passion. No plans to change it. 


WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?

Breathe.


WHAT TALENT WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO HAVE?

Omnipresent supergalactic oneness.


IF WE HAD A CUSTOM THAT ALLOWED US TO EAT OUR CHILDREN, WHAT KIND OF SAUCE WOULD YOU USE?

Ketchup, the miracle condiment.


ARE OUR ELECTRONIC DEVICES STEALING OUR SOUL? AND IF SO, DO YOU MAKE 

OFFERINGS TO YOUR TOASTER?

I offer white bread and the toaster gives back crunchy, brown bread. Never doubt a true miracle.
