By applying nascent libertarian concepts to one crucial key point in history Roland wrenches absolute rule from the grasp of psychopathic monarchs and drags proto civilization into a New World of human freedom centuries before its time and saves Planet Earth in the process.It Retrofuturism and parallel universe and modern science fiction and alternative history and libertarianism all rolled up into one great entertaining adventure.The BeginningIt all begins with young intelligent inquisitive minds telepathing with one another through the multiverse of time and space using crystals at the nether ends of a wormhole, one on the book title’s Wayward World in the distant future and the others in Kenilworth Castle in England in the year 1264.Luckily we 21st Century readers have monitoring devices that are either technologically advanced or antiquated depending on which end of the wormhole is considered called smartphones and tablets and Kindles and Cloud Readers, and from these we quickly learn that (1) Wayward will soon collide with Earth, (2) the Master of Kenilworth Castle lost a battle that year that, had he won, could have dramatically changed human history, and (3) the two events are intimately intertwined.So, sounds like the book’s cover blurb “A new kind of hero” actually smacks of more than just cover blurbery. And while the first chapter had all the feel and fidelity of swords sorcery fantasy fluff Chapter 2 quickly established its science fiction creds.So Questions 1 and 2 answered.And speaking of chapters, there’s a bonus for sci fi fans who are also history hounds: Each chapter ends in a flurry of links to the actual historical peoples, places and proceedings that appear in the timeline plotlines. A brilliant touch.The PremiseThe premise is spilled right up front so no spoiler alert is needed: The impending collision of worlds had already been detected and the means of preventing it worked out.
How long have you been serving in that role? I grew up as a catholic and walked away in HS and college from God and became an atheist. When Christ got a hold of me in my late 20s, I became a member of a non denominational church. 9 years later I been on fire for the Lord ever since..
That sounds awkward but glorious to have it all out on the table haha. My half brother doesn smoke and my mom would probably flip shit, so I only smoke by myself or with friends so being able to share that experience with my dad would be awesome. If he caught me i be chill because then i kinda forced to just come out with it, but he never comes up to my room and barely goes upstairs in the first place..
