"What have I done?"
Toby Platt, the protagonist of Larry Hodges' novel CAMPAIGN 2100: GAME OF SCORPIONS, is a cut-throat campaign manager who helps elect conservative candidate Corbin Dubois to the office of President of Earth even though he no longer agrees with any of his policies. When Dubois orders an attack on an alien who's trying to make first contact, Platt finally throws up his hands and decides he won't help Dubois get re-elected—instead, he's going to run himself and set things right.
Here are some quotes from Amazon readers about CAMPAIGN 2100:
Campaign 2100: Game of Scorpions is an excellent diversion in these divisive political times.
...the future setting is so skillfully done by Hodges that it intrudes not a whit on the many parallels between fiction and our present dismal political situation.
This book struck me as very relevant given the garbage tornado that is our current election.
Definitely a must read if you want to get your mind off the current political mish mash.

Come to think of it, we've published several fantasy novels that are also about battling tyranny and corruption. So we'll put those on sale as well. In Rebecca Roland's Shards of History series, an isolated tribal people must overcome fear of a perceived enemy in order to defeat an even more dangerous colonizer; in A.E. Decker's The Falling of the Moon, a young girl seeks her happily-ever-after, but instead gets embroiled in the corruption and politics of a fairy tale land; in Kristina Wojtaszek's Char, the last remaining fae make a stand as a brutal enemy seeks to wipe them all out.
