As writers go, I suppose I'm known as a bit of an optimist, so
it seems only natural that this novel projects a future where
there's a little more wisdom than folly ... maybe a bit more
hope than despair.
In fact, it's about the most encouraging tomorrow I can
imagine right now.
What a sobering thought.
