Aliens landing in America for Trump on Independence Day!
A feminist science fiction book launch announcement to Earthlings
By: Dark Helix Press Inc
The short stories in This Former President counter Trump administration political abomination and its aftermath with science fiction absurdity. Evoking her fellow native New Yorker Mel Brooks' sarcasm, Barr's laugh out loud alternative history tales are filled with female extraterrestrials who want to replace alternative facts with truth and justice.
Paul Levinson, Professor, Fordham University Department of Communication and Media Studies; former president of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association comments, "What are you going to do with a rising tide of fascism threatening just about every decent, progressive aspect of life in America? Wash it out of your mind, at least for a bit of time, with a book chock full of incisive, fantastical humor by a master of the craft. Highly recommended when the news is really bad, which is just about every day now."
Christopher McKitterick, Director, Ad Astra Institute for Science Fiction & the Speculative Imagination, University of Kansas states, "Marleen S. Barr's acerbic wit ridicules, pierces, and deflates the consensual hallucination that led so many to believe Trump lived anywhere near the universe in which he deserved high office. Barr weaves deeply satisfying alternate realities where various iterations of Trump are held accountable. Fittingly, her justice-dealing visitors from other, more enlightened worlds are women. These are ultimate wish-fulfillment narratives for everyone who has suffered estrangement and cognitive dissonance in the gravitational wake of Trumpism, which trespassed through our consciousness like dark matter, tangible but unimaginable, a cosmological horror show set right by fantastic feminists who re-align America to how it should be. You will be transported to the USA set right."
Takayuki Tatsumi, Professor Emeritus, Keio University (Tokyo) Department of English comments, "Literary historians, who have long considered American presidents to be literary figures, have compiled anthologies which reflect their pride in regard to presidential discourses. However, former president Donald Trump defaced this heritage by awkwardly mocking postmodernists and falsely presenting post-truth and alternative facts as his original ideas. Outraged by Trump's shameless performances and his insults to the dignity of the humanities, Earth's mightiest feminist Dr. Marleen S. Barr has created the most strategic and most science-fictional doomsday machine exclusively designed for abolishing the discursive network of Trumpism. Postmodernism may fail, but science fiction will prevail."
