Fly Twice Backward: Fresh Starts in Times of Troubles
by David McCracken
Price verified one hour ago
You wake back in early adolescence, adult memories intact, including ones that could make you very wealthy and influential as you age. Your birth family is here, alive again, though your later families are gone, perhaps forever. But what has happened, what can you, should you, do about growing concerns like ignorance, abuse, pollution, and global warming? You realize one key connects most, maybe all: the fundamentalist strains of all the major religions, disdaining science, equality, and social welfare. You see that there are some things you can change, some you can't, and one you don't dare to.
Fellow idealists help you get information and spend your growing fortune well--such as:
An artistic Zoroastrian prince in the Iranian oil industry,
A rising officer in the Soviet army working to find a way to destroy his corrupt absolutist government,
A Bahai woman struggling against Islamic brutality and environmental destruction, beloved by both the prince and the officer,
A Peruvian leader working from his deep heritage, for a liberal future,
A Jewish woman aghast at zealots' intemperance,
A snake-handling Christian minister, grappling with doubts, sexuality, and destiny.
They are supported by an ally who develops essential psychic powers.
The group faces familiar-looking corrupt politicians, religious leaders, and corporate czars, but there is an ancient force in the background, promoting greed, violence, hate, and fear.
This exciting, emotional, thoughtful, humorous, even romantic sci-fi weaves progressivism, music, movies, literature into a mind-bending multi-media novel!
