EMPIRE: a chilling look at a near-future scenario of a new American Civil War.
You can read about it and read the FIRST quarter of the book HERE http://www.hatrack.com/osc/books/empire/empire.shtml
he American Empire has grown too fast, and the fault lines at home are stressed to the breaking point. The war of words between Right and Left has collapsed into a shooting war, though most people just want to be left alone.
The battle rages between the high-technology weapons on one side and militia foot soldiers on the other, devastating the cities and overrunning the countryside. But the vast majority, who only want the killing to stop and the nation to return to more peaceful days, have technology, weapons, and strategic geniuses of their own.
When the American dream shatters into violence, who can hold the people and the government together? And which side will you be on?
Geez Louise. This is WAY too close from what OUR current EMPEROR Bush I had declared.
