In a quiet, dusty, surprisingly happy corner of the internet, a subversive group of writers and artists have been especially eager to celebrate. Their efforts, presented in this book, are the fruits of that celebration.
Featuring writers ranging in skill from first-time neophytes to award winners like Brad Torgersen, MAGA 2020 speculates on the future of America and the world, and their visions are wildly imaginative: a craggy old general puts ISIS in its proper metaphysical place for good. A socialist utopian enclave turns out to have a surprising and schadenfreud-inspiring origin. A young teen learns the TRUE history of contemporary America. Young Barron Trump becomes a hero in two different tales, and California’s last hippie finds a forever home. Interspersed are essays discussing writers’ views of what this new era means to literature, freedom, and America, and the stories are bookended with essays by Milo Yiannoupolis and Monalisa Foster about how conservative views color not just what these artists write, but HOW they write.
I said years ago that conservative fiction is not just important to the future of American and international literature, but critical for an awakening that can lead us to the next step instead of trapping us in a vortex of postmodernistic navel-gazing and politically correct bean counting. Judging by the fresh new perspectives offered by the authors of this book, I was right.
A special note to conservatives: please, support this book and the work of these writers. If you want conservatives to tell our stories instead of unsympathetic liberals, if you agree with the late Andrew Breitbart that politics is downhill from culture, you are already their allies.They are trying to help change the world, but right now it is a Sisyphean task. They depend on you to give them wings.
1. Fans of Trump who are looking for a few more laughs as they ride the Trump Train to a better America
2. Pearl-clutching NeverTrumpers who have their fainting couches at the ready and want a book that will allow them to swoon, Ignatius P. Reilly-like in horror at how much fun it is to be a Trumpkin these days
Not all of the items in this collection are comedic or even tongue in cheek celebrations of making America great again. This collection includes a few thoughtful pieces as well, but every single one is salve to the souls of those who treasure their red hats and tire of the gloomy Gus writings of the mainstream media.
I'd originally learned about this collection from Scott Bell and Monalisa Foster (both are contributors), but I was delighted to discover several other authors whose works I will now be reading. So that was an added bonus for me.
I received a complementary advance readers copy of this book, but since then I've also purchased it to share with friends and family who I know will appreciate it.
The basic premise is that it is time for sci fi writers to get back to hope and optimism and creative ideas about our possible future, rather than assuming the future must be worse than today as has been fashionable lately. By responding to the unlikely election victory of the unthinkable candidate Donald Trump, these authors have successfully imagined dozens of creative consequences of that election and how it might turn out to be a blessing rather than a curse.
I've been missing that hope and optimism in a lot of sci fi lately, so was really glad to find it here, and amazed to enjoy every story.
It was a fun read from authors that I like and gives me a chance to smile & be excited about our country. Excited like I was during the Reagan years.
The writing in the stories is tight, logical, and well done. I love stories where I can actually visualize the events. And I flat out LOVED the Mattis story. Just amazing and I grinned all the way through.
While all of the stories in this collection clearly lean at least a little to the right, they are still fun stories. These stories aren't boring preaching masquerading as sci-fi. They are action-packed stories with a little humor and a lot of heart. You could even call them high energy.
