MEET THE AUTHOR
San Francisco native Kermit E. Heartsong is a political writer for examiner.com and author of United States of Mammon (Tayen Lane, 2013). He has published several award-winning word games and is a member of Writers and Authors and the Association of Writers. He has also been interviewed on CNN, CNN International, KRON, and KCBS, and featured in Entrepreneur, Entrepreneur Young Millionaire, Success, Essence, and in author Carol Adrienne’s The Story of Your Life.
Heartsong, an empirical scientist, has been a keen observer of the macroscopic developments of social, economic, and political systems for the past twenty-five years and has uncovered a number of troubling trends, which has led to the writing of his second book, Illusions, Dystopia & Monsters (Tayen Lane, 2014).
A unique, captivating, and thoroughly disturbing book, author Kermit Heartsong’s Illusions, Dystopia & Monsters explores the idea of reality as being potentially more terrifying than any dystopian film through a direct comparison with over 70 of the greatest dystopian films and novels of the century.
Those worlds we have seen or read about in 1984, The Matrix, Mad Max, and Brazil, and their evil characters, are not dissimilar to those of our world today. Heartsong brings the resemblances to our attention and makes it clear that the monsters of our civilization—big wig corporate executives, so-called political leaders, etc.—are actually worse than the monsters of our imaginations.
Through myriad examples and evidence to support his argument, from current events to the melting of our polar ice caps, Heartsong presents the reader with fact after fact, constructing a discourse that breaks down the walls between reality and fiction. Readers can be prepared to be shocked at the truths and how they are, indeed, stranger than fiction.
