Audible Editor Reviews

A spirited rendering of the "Star-Spangled Banner" begins this startling story, which is set in the U.S. in 2041. Spencer Murphy narrates a true-to-life picture of an American family as 90-year-old Great Grand Da laments a new law that forbids the freedoms of religion, speech, and assembly. When an angry and disgusted Grand Da protests in the town's square, his great grandson Donald's fear is audible. Donald questions his relative's right to protest the law and calls to report him to the "uncles" who oversee all citizens (for their own good). A shocking conclusion and a much-less-robust-sounding National Anthem end this disturbing work.

    Story
    "Nothing Gay here!"

    Although this book comes up under the genre of Gay Fantasy, there are no gay characters or content whatsoever. It also has no business being listed as a "Fantasy." The fact that it takes place in the future could qualify it for science fiction. The most applicable category for this story would be Philosophy or maybe 'Cautionary Tales' if there were such a category. If you're looking for Gay Fantasy, don't waste your time with this.
