Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Folks, I had to write Democracy's Thief.

As you know from the above description, it's about a presidential candidate who has the paranormal ability to affect the minds and hearts of people who attend his rallies. Once they have been hit with his magic beam, they support him unwaveringly, despite any indications that their support is unwise.

Even though this book includes someone who can influence the minds of others, a private eye who can read thoughts, and a jewel thief who has traveled forward in time, it's not half as strange as what's happening in our real-life world. Right?

Like the people in the book, real-world humans, once they have decided on a belief, tend to stick to it. Experiments have demonstrated that providing those people with facts contrary to their beliefs only makes them hold onto their ideas more stubbornly. Perhaps these tribal tendencies, from our days of previous Melania (oops, millennia), are problematic for democracy on a planet with over seven billion people. So, the book, in small part, is an allegory. That is, as Merriam-Webster puts it, "It's the expression by means of symbolic fictional figures and actions of truths or generalizations about human existence."

Stop! Hold on! Jeez, that makes the book sound all serious-like. It's not. In the words of Van Morrison, I keep things loose--I keep things light. The book includes my usual childish humor, things like a sassy secretary--sorry, investigative assistant--who experiences a wardrobe malfunction.

In other words, I promise that you'll hardly notice the underlying theme of this book. Jeez, maybe I shouldn't have even brought it up!

About the Author

Al Macy writes because he has stories to tell. In school he was the class clown and always the first volunteer for show and tell. His teachers would say, "Al has a lot of imagination." Then they'd roll their eyes.

But he put his storytelling on the back burner until he retired and wrote a blog about his efforts to improve his piano sight-reading. That's when his love of storytelling burbled up to the surface, along with quirky words like "burble."

He had even more fun writing his second book, but was bummed by nonfiction's need to stick to "the truth" (yucko). From then on it was fiction all the way, with a good dose of his science background burbling to the surface.

Macy's top priority is compelling story lines with satisfying plot twists, but he never neglects character development. No, wait ... his top priority is quirkiness, then compelling story lines, then character development. No, wait ...
