"Revolver by Michael Patrick Hicks ... takes the 'shocking' gold medal. A classic example of social science fiction ... most gripping." - David Wailing, author of Auto
"Revolver is a brave, powerful piece of writing... It's unapologetic, visceral, andthe kind of story that would probably have sent the Clean Reader appinto cyber meltdown. Give it a read if you like your stories to take you to the edge of your seat." - Tommy Muncie, author of Shadow's Talent
"This story, you should print out and give to your friends and family. You should read it aloud at book club meetings and you should dissect with strangers at the bus stop. This story is freaking amazing." - Stephanie Lehenbauer, Novel Commentary Review of No Way Home
From the Author
"A lot of what happens in this story resonates with what we see and what we read in our very lives today. 'Revolver' is a great story, bristling with tension, unflinching with its descriptions and thoughtful."
"Revolver is a perfect short story/novella to read right now. The political extremists are gaining more and more power and they aren't easily ignored anymore. Revolver tells the story of what would happen if we let this extremism go too far. And wow was it good. ... Revolver is a big "what if" book that will leave you feeling raw and full of emotion."
"... with all the political turmoil, particularly the attitudes against women, that the world is being exposed to right now. I think this makes Revolver all the more terrifyingly plausible."
"For a shorter story, this one had a very commanding presence! In the world of reality TV shows, the premise behind "Revolver" is almost too believable. ... Highly recommended!"
"For a short story this really packed a punch. Good stuff."
"Revolver, by Michael Patrick Hicks, is a one-of-a-kind short story, a window into a world that feels all too real. ... If that sounds like a brutal concept, wait until you read the story. Hicks pulls no punches, bringing in topics that include politics, sexism, elitism, racism, and even abortion and gun control. Yet it's so subtly crafted that the story doesn't feel like a soap box rant but rather a glimpse at a stark and very possible future."
