Troy J. Grice

Troy has been a student of economics and a passionate libertarian since his twenties. A fan of dystopian novels and science fiction, he describes his own writing as “anti-propaganda” and “counter-myth.” He enjoys giving the finger to the corrupt establishment and the barely-lucid masses who enable them.

For Troy, no institution is beyond reproach.

His novels include:

Gaiastan: A messianic tale of transformation and redemption set in a radical environmentalist tyranny.

Goldstein: An exile from the last free colony ventures into corpo-fascist Amerika.

Indivisible: The lives of a psychotic sheriff, a vain diplomat, a tormented soldier, and a desperate father converge amidst civil war in contemporary America.

Troy is also finishing up Oathkeeper, about a reluctant mountain sheriff resisting an unaccountable DEA, and a sequel to Indivisible.

D.J. Knedgen

D.J. Knedgen

D.J. Knedgen is a concerned citizen of the world and a medical professional with many hobbies and interests, among them a passion for politics and for writing fiction.

Her debut novel — The Chimera Collusion, a riveting thriller about a young woman coerced into being a pawn in an audacious political conspiracy — is the natural outcome of both.

D.J.’s current work in progress — The Chains Protocol — like its predecessor, focuses on the message of personal freedom and liberty, as well as the dangers of apathy, in an entertaining way. (She figures that if she can save just one person, it’ll be worth it. Wink, wink.) She’s a fan of action-packed suspense sprinkled with healthy doses of sex and violence, and she writes the same way.

John Hunt, MD

John Hunt was influenced by Ayn Rand certainly, but holds a stronger recognition of the personal and economic value he obtains if the people around him are happy, and that includes anyone who may someday interact with him or the people he loves in any way, even at great distance. He is profoundly pro-peace and therefore against a large chunk of the progressive (initiation of force is acceptable) mentality that causes war.

John wrote Higher Cause, a libertarian-themed techno-thriller published by Laissez Faire Books, and Assume the Physician, a satirical novel about the current medical system. He now feels very fortunate to be working with his co-author, Doug Casey, on a series of anarcho-capitalist novels.

J.P. Medved

J.P. writes fun adventure stories and thoughtful thrillers, from steampunk works like To Rescue General Gordon, Queen Victoria’s Ball, and In the Shade of the Ishtar Trees to philosophical thrillers like Second Opinion. You can preview his other works and download free stories at his website.

When not writing, J.P. can be found frying anything he can get his hands on in his deep fat fryer, shooting tons of guns, and losing himself in a good book at the most inopportune times (around the dinner table, at baseball games, during heartfelt emotional conversations).
