You guys would like it. It's a little left. lots of action. Little anti-American. Hip. And there is a corresponding game. I liked it ok, too.

I think a lot of the posters here would like it. Of course all won't.

It is a satire. I think it would appeal to you. (But I can't predict things.)

I posted about the site a while ago. I created my own government based around a turnip.

Well, I haven't read anything but the prologue (since it's free ;)) but I think it's a lot like the Space Merchants (by Fred Pohl and C.K. Kornbluth) from what I've read ;) I'll probalby get it from the library if my trash library ever acquires it ;)

Yeah, it is like the Space Merchants. He even slips in a reference to that in the book...
