“History, Aristotle says, represents things only as they are, while fiction represents them as they might be and ought to be.”
— Albert J. Nock, Memoirs of a Superfluous Man
25 Perfect Days by Mark Tullius

Charter member Mark Tullius is doing two sales on his books. You’ll have to act quickly to take advantage of the first one.

His novel 25 Perfect Days is a dystopian nightmare that warns of what could happen if we don’t change our ways.

It is on sale right now (1/25/14–1/28/14) on Kindle for $0.99. Get it at this bargain price while you can, because the normal price is $5.99.

After the sale on 25 Perfect Days ends, the sale on dystopian novel Brightside begins.

Brightside is a science-fiction thriller about a group of telepaths the government imprisons in a beautiful mountain town.

That email list still exists and is our main mode of communication with each other, but it quickly became a much more ambitious project.

And so, the association and this website were born.
