The Last President Anthology

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

An Anthology of Prescient Political Satire These century-old predictions are uncanny. Too much like our present day, say some. Proof that time travel exists, say others. Ingersoll Lockwood, himself a lawyer, wrote a pamphlet which predicted the rise of an outsider presidential candidate who took the presidency of our nation and ended it. Set in the lat 1800's it tells of a populist candidate who is elected with the platform to "undo the bad business of years of unholy union between barters and sellers of human toil and the law makers of the land." These similarities between fiction and current events were so great, Snopes elected to "fact check" them and gave them a "mostly true" rating. The other book Lockwood was known for had a Baron (Barron?) Trump as the hero. In this included story, he again tired of his excessive wealth and set about going to Russia (Russiagate?) to meet a powerful "Don" who was to instruct him about his new adventure. Also included in this anthology are several additional modern satires that poke barbed fun at certain "alluded" characters in our current political sphere. For all we know, these may be just another coincidental set of entertaining fiction...
