I Nominate These Authors for the 2007 Nostrodamus Award

Chapter 1
“Best Laid Plans”

“Men are useless.” A shortish blond woman, in roughly the same shape as the office she occupied, leaned back in her chair. She plopped her size tens on what was otherwise an elegant mahogany desk. Madam President wasn’t happy this morning. She squinted at the eagle carved in the ceiling and continued to rant: “I’ve had it with the lot of you.”That was true in more ways than one. The first woman to hold the office, she had arrived on the backswing of the political pendulum. The previous occupant of this noble house had been devoted to family and faith, a man of simple ideas. But this President had divorced her husband, albeit after the election, and within days of her inauguration had shocked the nation by announcing she was a lesbian. Tough as steel and just as cold, this new breed of president seemed to have faith in nothing but her invincibility, and to fear nothing but anonymity.”
[…a paragraph down…]
Ever fickle, the American people had elected a dove, a peacemaker, or so her campaign had promised. She was schooled in political correctness and all manner of new-world-order solutions. Everything she said sounded so reasoned, so civilized. Well, in front of the cameras, anyway…

Had to make a shortstop at the Dr’s office the other day and took two books, you know, in case they made me wait…the one almost done and this other one I had purchased at a used book store, in excellent condition, from the Political/Military section so labeled. Thought it was a non-fiction book, and after polishing off “The Truth About Muhammed” by Robert Spencer (most excellent read, BTW), I moved on to open “Tea with Terrorists: Who They are – Why They Kill – What Will Stop Them” by Craig Winn and Ken Power. The above text opened the book, which in the forward explains, while it is a novel, it is founded on very real research and documentation.

So…think these boys have a time machine in their garage? Actually, I hope not, but I sense they are being true to what are very plausible real life situations, as they stated in the Forward.

The Amazon reviews are quite complimentary, saying this is good reading for those who won’t pick up non-fiction books…but love their novels.
