9780985051808: The World Game

North Korea becomes the Korean Hegemony and Iran becomes the Iranian Islamic Empire by 2034. Two unstable regimes with nuclear weapons going head to head with each other. The USA, weakened militarily by decades of cutbacks that started in 2008, has only one weapon to stop the Iranian fanatics. An untested Anti-Matter-Device. (AMD) The US intelligence is able to disarm Korea, but the President is forced to use the AMD to stop Iran. But it is not that simple. This is the Seventh World Game, where seemingly immortal beings tune in to watch humanity destroy itself. They bet on the "acts" and are sustained by the emotional emanations of humans in love, distress and facing certain death. They bet on the outcome. They are watching you, right NOW, as you read this. They are probably betting on your ability to survive long enough to read the whole book. In future, there is an International Space City (ISC) which is serviced by shuttles from Goddard Sky Hook Center. The Sky Hook is a 27,000 mile high nano-carbon tube with a restaurant at the far end. Trams travel up and down inside the tube taking tourists into space, and the ISC, which is some 500 miles further out in space, is serviced by the NASA shuttles on the outside of the tube. Twenty top students from high schools all over the US have won places to visit the ISP, and they just arrive and get started when the hostilities break out. The Anti Matter Device works, but not as expected. Launched into space ahead of a catastrophically disintegrating planet Earth, the 20 students and a few other survivors of humanity, including ironically, the US President, are pitted against the leaders of Iran who have survived inside a bunker in a fragment of the Earth's crust, as well as simply surviving in hostile space. Meet Col. John Fuller and the saucy Commander Janine Carver who are in charge of the students. Root for the underdog, Sheila Johnson, assistant cook on the ISP who is forced to become a shuttle commander. She also happens to be a PhD. in Stochastic Processes and a Seventh Kishka in Pirogi Cholent martial arts. Explore Faster than Light travel using physics discovered by Nylast Dinkshif. Test out the NASA Youniforms and Buddies that make space survival possible, as well as some interesting love scenes. (Well, the immortals think they are interesting...) The Earthly conflict is continued in the midst of this destruction by the Iranian religious fanatics, even though it would mean extinction for all humanity. Then the story really gets exciting... The "immortals" switch to the Finale of the Series 7 Program, "The Universe's Got Talent." and start interfering even more with the survivors as they run for Alpha Centauri. And an unexpected conclusion.

About the Author:

Allen Charles has been writing Adventure, Science Fiction and Historical Fiction recreationally for the past forty years and sharing his work with a few friends. His life in Australia was interrupted by the tragic passing of his first wife in 2007.He then moved to Baltimore Maryland after meeting and marrying the new love of his life. With time to start living again, he has elevated his passion to greater heights, taking his works back to the wordsmith's forge and beating them into wares that will challenge and entertain, enliven a table conversation and grace any bookshelf.With a background in engineering, computer sales, graphic design and database design and management, and a strong interest in history, he is well qualified to test the reader's imagination with provocative, well plotted stories across several genres of writing.Having completed this first volume of the Trilogy , "The World Game" a "Shattered World", Allen is well into Volume 2, and a third finale planned, plus a prequel, "The Building of Sky Hook". A second work is also well under way, "I Am The Witness", which is an historical fiction series set across the millennia of human history.

Descrizione libro Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 352 pages. North Korea explodes a 10 megaton nuclear device. Next a ballistic missile test. Kim Jong Un executes his uncle. The US moves anti ballistic missile defences closer to Korea. Iran. . . 16 nuclear manufacturing sites identified. Israel says Iran less than a year from a weapon. US President says wait. The Iranians are nice guys. . . they are scaling down. . . This is 2014. Where is it all heading Read where it is going in The World Game. . . From Adam and Eve to nuclear conflict in 2034. Nearly six thousand years of recorded history. Recorded blood, mayhem, wars, untold violence and slaughter. WhyAfter decades of weak leadership by apologetic US Presidents, the Korean Hegemony and the Iranian Islamic Empire enter nuclear conflict, with an almost powerless US President helpless on the side, his only knee-jerk defence in these extreme circumstances, the unleashing of an untested Anti-Matter Device. The Why is for the bizarre entertainment of Immortals who are watching, feeding off, and gambling on our violent and bloody performance. You will be shocked to find out who these beings are. This ultimate conflict ushers in the finale of the Seventh Edition of The World Game. They call it, The Universes Got Talent. There are three judges. What happens on Earth when an anti-matter weapon is used for the first time It was in the newspaper a couple of months ago. The concept is being tested now. What improbable coincidence pits the surviving Iranians against the last Americans, all being aggravated by increasingly unsubtle immortal interference. Leading to a conclusion you would not imagine. The World Game explores what could happen if Iran and Korea remain unchecked, with all these events throughout history occurring for the grizzly sustenance and entertainment of immortal beings, feeding off your emotional emanations of love, terror and death. They are watching YOU, right now, sucking up your essence. Your most private, intimate moments are being observed. Even as you read this and say to yourself - What nonsense!Who are theyEvents are acts and people are performers as humanity plays out The Universes Got Talent on the stage of the immortals. It is not all nail biting suspense. Amidst the twists and turns of the plot, the banter of the immortals will keep you laughing and turning pages to see what happens next, right to the mind bending conclusion. A few five star reviewers got it right!If you are looking for a book that does not demand thought - then you are in the wrong place.
