“History, Aristotle says, represents things only as they are, while fiction represents them as they might be and ought to be.”

Andy is a software engineer living in Seattle with his wife and kid.

He is currently working on the first draft of an as yet untitled speculative fiction novel depicting a society operating under his vision of “libertarianism.” His latest attempt at a backpage blurb:

The Acacia Valley is a low-profile independent area in southeast Asia that for historical reasons has evolved into a societal model different from the modern nation-state. Until now, the system has worked — disagreements among the many different flavors of immigrants to the Valley are common, but they get resolved peacefully and the Valley flourishes economically and socially — but a large new wave of immigration has brought with it a whole host of new problems. Are the new problems inevitable once a society gets past a certain size? Must the Valley change the way it has done things to continue to survive? Virginia and Darwin have lived in the Valley all of their adult lives, and they helped to shape its current form. Have they miscalculated? Or is something else going on? The fate of the life that they have chosen — and of the Valley in general — may reside in the answers that they find.
