Description

No one can die, except when it is time for them to be killed. In the far future, medical advances have evolved to the point that people can control their own lifespan, but the government has decided that two hundred and seventeen years is long enough. A group of thirteen true immortals decides how to rule the world, but cannot seem to govern themselves. A society where everything is private, everything private is watched, and no one watches those watchers. With great regards to works by George Orwell, Margret Atwood, and Aldous Huxley, this dystopian novel shows the harm of medical over reach, government control, and the risk of a growing population.

Author Biography

A school teacher in Texas, teaching English literature, Robert MacNeill has spent his life trying to figure out what he wanted to do with his life. He is still searching. After graduating High School, he joined the Army. After leaving the Army he worked in information technology, while going to school. Now he splits his time, when he is not teaching with: coaching football, writing, narrating audiobooks, and occasionally sleeping. A love of Shakespeare started early in life, and lead to a world where dystopian, fantasy, and science fiction is what tops his reading list.
