The Identity Wars

 

Utopia is Dystopia. Where will you be in the year 2035?

 

Most novels about a dystopian future have little to do with the real world. They either take place in some post-apocalypse wasteland that has no connection with the present day, or they are old-fashioned visions of far-right totalitarianism on the out-of-date 20th century model.

 

“The Identity Wars” is very different. It is a new type of dystopian novel based upon the actual society that we live in today. It portrays a dystopian future which arises directly out of the politics and policies of contemporary society.

 

This novel puts together three features of your world. (1) An impending, and much predicted, serious crash of capitalism causing economic collapse. (2) Western societies becoming ever more divided by multiple ethnic cultures. (3) The growing gender segregation of men and women, such as the social phenomenon of Men Going Their Own Way (MGTOW), as a result of the iniquities of feminism. Given these three features of the world you live in, “The Identity Wars” looks twenty years into the future and asks: what will society become? What will happen to a feminist-multiculturalist society under the impact of a global financial meltdown?

 

 

It is also the story of three men on their fortieth birthdays. The grandfather, Alf Eldridge, who was forty in 1975. The father, Michael Eldridge, who was forty in 2005. The son, Kyle Eldridge a.k.a. Ritzy, who is forty in 2035. Each of them is a product of the culture they live in. Each of them lives in a culture entirely different from the other two. Each of them has a wholly different conception of manhood. Across these three generations, from grandfather to grandson, the world changed radically and dramatically. There will be no going back.

 

This is the news from tomorrow. The future is coming.

 

The Most Hated Man

 

Set against a background of economic decline, the rise of Islamic Jihad, and the social engineering imposed by the ideologies of multiculturalism and feminism, this novel becomes more topical and relevant with every month that passes. Two killers, two fatal agendas, two harassed cops, one broken nation. In a society spiralling out of control, the establishment elites of political correctness have been targeted and their time is running out. 


A series of bloody deaths is causing panic in a city in England. Someone is murdering teenagers among the underclass by disseminating a lethal recreational drug which, with morbid humour, the mainstream media have termed ‘snuff’. But is the snuff-killer just some crazy drug dealer who is pushing a deadly narcotic regardless of the consequences or is he killing these young people deliberately for some deeper motivation of his own?

Two police officers, Detective Inspector Bapoto Smith and Detective Sergeant Gloria Kovač, are a part of the task force unit working the case. Lacking any forensic evidence or public support, they must pursue their investigation hindered further by the puerile restraints of the political directives, policies, and procedures that make up modern policing priorities. 

At the same time a second murderer, Hereward, is on a deadly mission of his own. Hereward is abducting members of the political and cultural establishment. For fifty years these reactionaries of ‘correctness’ have adamantly refused to listen to anyone who disagreed with them. Now Hereward is making them listen. The corpses of those to whom he speaks are subsequently found dead by dehydration, bruised from the chains which had bound them. 
Confronted with this terrorism the ruling elite are frantic.

 

Yet both murderers have political motives, so is the serial killer really a terrorist or is the terrorist really a serial killer?

Dutiful

 

This is a serious novel about human relationships, not simply a piece of superficial erotica, but readers should be aware that it deals with very adult themes and therefore includes graphic sexual scenes.

“Dutiful” is the portrait of a woman: Isabel. The story explores the fascinating paradoxes of one woman’s lifestyle as she combines career accomplishment in her public life with sexual masochism in her private life. The intensely reflective narrative which unfolds in Dutiful offers intriguing insights into the nature of a successful consensual-sadomasochistic relationship between a male dominant and a female submissive. The novel looks beneath the surface exteriors of what mainstream society believes about sadomasochism and delves more profoundly into the personal freedom derived from being truly oneself.

Isabel’s married life with her husband/lover Gabe has taught her that love only rests secure on complete sexual honesty. She knows that if you are loved without being understood, then you have to live in fear that one day your lover will learn the truth about you and not love you any more, but if your lover understands and accepts who you really are, then it is truly you that he loves, and you can love and be loved without fear.
