And the good news is it’s been getting fantastic early reviews. Not only from people who love to read sci-fi, but from other readers as well. Which in my opinion, means I did my job well. The point of this book was to write an accessible, conceivably possible, and potentially terrifying view of what our future could be. And that’s what people are saying it is.
But it’s not a horror story. It’s maybe kind of a thriller. But still, it’s frightening. A warning for what just might happen if we continue down the path we’re on. Overpopulation. Chemical pesticides. Class warfare. Unchecked technological advances. All those things.
In some ways it’s George Orwell. In others it’s Aldous Huxley. And there’s a bit of Philip K. Dick influence in there as well.
But most of all, it’s something new – and something prescient.
Alanna Rusnak, Author and Editor of Blank Spaces Magazine even called it “an intricate and evocative sci-fi triumph.”
I hope you enjoy it.

Who is David S. Sparks? Where is David S. Sparks? When is David S. Sparks?
Following The Class Wars and The Chemical Wars, nature reclaims humanity’s infrastructure. While most of mankind ekes out an existence in quarantined cities perched off the mainland, small pockets of survivalists erect their colonies within old city sites.
David S. Sparks awakens into the chaos of this future world, unsure of his place in a reality wildly different than where he thinks he belongs. As the desire to retake the planet swells, so too does the question of how. Will the same mistakes be repeated? Can technology beat nature, or is it time for another approach? And what is David Sparks’s role in all of it?
Dive into a wild, mind-bending journey as one man chases the ultimate question of self, discovering things are not always what they seem, and that closing your eyes can bring a whole new world into view.
