A Fable For Our Time
International news media have recently reported a plan to launch an artificial moon over a city in China. Patricia J Anderson's Threshold, an eco-fable written in 2016 and published last year by Common Deer Press, describes the launch of an artificial moon over the realm of Ooolandia, where authorities are creating an engineered reality with plans to eliminate nature altogether.
Threshold illustrates many other aspects of a world gone mad; events, features, and fearful omens you will find eerily familiar from your own daily life. The book describes a society ruled by the principle of MORE, an economic system that has led to the near-decimation of the natural world. MOREISM's latest project involves launching an artificial moon which will give the authorities total control of the night.
A group of activist animals and humans learn that the engineering effort required to do this will trigger massive earthquakes and melt what's left of the polar ice caps, creating a tipping point from which the earth will not recover. They band together to try and stop the launch. The countdown begins.
Will they survive?
