Book Description

"A dystopian Sunset Limited in the spirit of 1984"

A story of oppression, resistance and consequences.

Set in a world some time after the glorious people's revolution, the Party has near unchallenged control, except in the freehold. The freehold is a mocking reminder of the Party's failure to quench the memory of the old republic.

Tonight, they aim to erase the freehold and the resistance that dwells there, but something goes terribly wrong.

Now, covered in blood and struggling to hang on to the swiftly unraveling threads of his life, one man slips in and out consciousness as he wrestles with memories of his past and the mysterious Gabe.

Approximately 10,000 words.

Editorial Reviews


"What a great great story! It is a good cross of George Orwell's 1984, V for Vendetta, and We... Flashback is pretty good in my opinion, and I read it quickly (as it is a short story). Flashback has a lot of action built into the storyline and [I] would like to see it expanded on." -Ad Parare

5.0 out of 5 stars More please! January 7, 2013

I agree with both Papa Mike III and Tom. I read in one sitting and found myself wanting more (too short, but I realize the author intended it to be). So I ordered Part 1 of "The Western Front" and devoured it as well. You have a new fan and customer, Archer!

Grabbed me from the first page! Didn't stop until I'd finished it.

Very thought provoking!! Recommended reading to anyone who'd like to see a speculative 'snap shot' of our future....

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Fine Story by Archer Garrett April 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
In this novella, author Archer Garrett examines the falseness of Marxist/socialist theory as it is and has been practiced -- nee -- forced upon decent people through the years. Flashback, by Archer Garrett uses a recent revolution by socialists, and the resistance fighting to restore democracy, to ask the questions: Do the ends justify the means? Or, do the means justify the end? Who gets to decide what "the common good" is?

The writing is crisp and moves along quickly. Most interesting to me were the scenes between the `bad guy' protagonist who rejects introspection with someone who has a much greater perspective of the whole picture. There is a glimmer of hope at the end for the nameless country where the action takes place.

A fine and thought-provoking read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Little Story March 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a well-written little novella and a nice diversionary read, about a modern rebellion against a tyranny. Good twists with both technology and a Biblical story that seems to be coming up over and over in lots of places these days.

I got this one as a daily freebie. The quality of writing makes me want to find out if the characters and situations are well-developed in another, bigger book.
