Free Book

Ed Driscoll notes that J. Neil Schulman's Alongside Night is available for free download.

"Just look at TV news or read a newspaper," Schulman said. "Plot point after plot point is identical. In my 1979 novel I have General Motors go bankrupt -- General Motors then files for bankruptcy. I have Europe issue a common currency in my novel called the 'eurofranc' -- the European Union then goes and issues the 'euro.' In my novel I have a European Chancellor, based in France, accuse the U.S. President of having the monetary policies of a banana republic -- then the President of the European Union -- also based in France -- slams U.S. plans to spend its way out of recession as 'a road to hell' and says President Barack Obama's massive stimulus package and banking bailout 'will undermine the liquidity of the global financial market.' The copycat nature of all these plot points and dialogue" -- says Schulman -- "could not be more obvious!"

If it's not either satire or comedy, then I wouldn't want to read it.

Today is so full of plot holes and outright lunacies that I can't imagine a book about it as being all that good.

I hope The Rainbow Cadenza isn't next.
