Coolthulhu Presents a New Book Spotlight On:

World-Mart

 

World-MartWorld-Mart Synopsis: George Irwin remembers a time before the Big Climate Change, back when the airlines were still in business, back when people still drove their own cars and the bulk of humanity had not yet been driven underground.Back when all people were still people despite their eye color or which class they were born into. . . .

The world has changed much over his lifetime, but George still believes in the American Dream. However, when an alleged terrorist act lands his wife in the hospital, George stumbles upon a secret that could mean the end of all civilization.

World-Mart takes place in a not-too-distant future, one in which the collective and all-powerful entity known as “Corporate” owns and controls every aspect of society.

One held in place by complacency and mediocrity.

One that could very easily come to pass . . . very soon.

What does your future look like?

Teaser (from the World-Mart Prequel: The Private Sector):

John Junior shuffled into the entry. The four-year-old had lovely short curls of golden hair, a stark contrast to his parents’ dark brown tresses. He also had striking green eyes and a pout to his lips that could charm the Devil himself. He had a yellow security blanket slung over his left shoulder, and he dragged the bulk of it behind him as he moved. “What’s wrong?”

Dianne lowered to one knee as the boy shambled closer. “Everything’s going to be all right. Everything’s fine, sweetheart.”

“Why are you crying?” The boy asked stuck his thumb in his mouth and tugged the blanket tightly into the crook of his neck.

“No reason.” She offered the boy a heartfelt hug, which he accepted graciously. “Silly adult stuff.”

“The policeman won’t come back and hurt us, will he?”

She shook her head, glancing down at the coupon she still clutched in one hand. “No, we’re safe. We’re absolutely safe. I promise.” Another tear defied her resolve, but she banished it with a quick swipe before the boy had a chance to see it.

“Was Mrs. Smith safe?” the little boy asked with a level of wisdom beyond his years.

Dianne worked to steady her shaky breaths. “Mrs. Smith was a good woman, but she wasn’t smart like we are. You have to be smart to stay safe, and your daddy and I are both very, very smart.”

He looked her in the eyes, as if to assess the truth in her words, and then he shrouded himself in the worn yellow blanket. “The policeman will be back.”

“Yes, he will.”

“He scares me, Momma.”

“Me too, sweetheart.”

“How do you know he won’t come in through the window and get us?”

Her hand crumpled around the flimsy coupon. “That’s what insurance is for, sweetie.”

  1. Hi Lilyn & Leigh.

    Nothing scares me about dystopian books! I know my place, is here at the top of the pecking order and I am MORE than comfortable with that. It is up to the rest of you, …lower echelon types, … to find your appropriate little slot to occupy.

    Just kidding!
    I’m a faceless, nameless nobody getting crushed by the wheel of society every day!
    Books take me awaaaaay!

    Happy Reading!
    ~Icky. 🙂

  2. I’d like to clarify that the excerpt above is from THE PRIVATE SECTOR, the prequel novel in the WORLD-MART series. Rafflecopter winner may choose which book he or she would prefer. Thanks again for spotlighting my work, Lilyn!
