"I know that good and evil walk hand-in-hand. Kindness and cruelty arrive on the same plane. The spirit that helps one person haunts another. But when evil, cruelty and horror take all the seats at the table, what can one person do?"
Government has gotten serious about helping the homeless.
Crews roam the streets of San Francisco. Air conditioned buses sweep people away to isolated camps where they’re given free shelter, food, medical care and retraining.
No fault, no blame.
No warrants, no arrests, no criminal records.
And no choice.
One man refuses to go. He's a unique guy, his life filled with major triumphs and gut-wrenching tragedies.
He’s determined to stop an ambitious governor and avenge the death of a young friend.
To some, he’s a courageous hero, standing up for noble principles. To others he’s just another washed-up troublemaker.
But until they catch him, he's the last one on the run.
In addition to receiving the Emmy Award for creating Neverwinter Nights and winning a National Endowment for the Arts New Voices writing competition, Don Daglow's work has appeared in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction.
