This novel follows the original, "Thank You For Your Cooperation". The main characters are different, and each novel can be read independently. Of course, there are links between them, and some of the cast is recurring.

The Bunker, where the novels take place, is an underground world run by Control. Control means well, but due to a rather unfortunate confluence of events (not to mention duplicity, manipulation, and simple human greed) is obsessed with the constant threat of social deviancy. In the Bunker, the line between traitor and loyal citizen is often blurred, and each plot accidentally uncovered only serves to convince Control that the terrorist alert level ought to be raised yet again. Collateral damage is regrettable, of course, but an unfortunate side-effect of dealing with a hostile, invisible, and (by some accounts) nonexistent fifth column.

I've already got the beginnings of a concept for a third installment in the series. What's its name, and will there be any more?

I'm sorry, citizen, but that information is not available at your security clearance.(less)

If for some reason the next step in a story isn't clear or I'm having trouble getting it out, the difficulty is usually a sign that the next scene is flawed in some fundamental way. Usually, I'll find that the scene (or some part of it) isn't actually necessary and I'll just skip it and move on. Sometimes, however, the problem can lie in the story arc itself, and I'll have to go back and revisit what I've already written. In any case, I never force myself through a scene. If the next step doesn't feel right, then it probably isn't.(less)

Gyges the Terrible (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: What would you be like if you could do anything you wanted and feared no punishment? This is a futuristic Earth, a dystopia. Drugs are a commonplace amusement and unemployment is a capital crime. Freemocracy camps exist for those who make trouble, and most of us try and escape the boredom of our lives in a common virtual world called “The Sim”. Like the rest of us, Marcellus is just an ordinary. But one day, he finds a magical token. A whole new world opens up. It's a world he was never supposed to see. There are specials. They eat real food. There are the wide, cavernous halls of the White House where the strings of Empire are expertly pulled. The ordinaries are puppets, he realizes. He'll never go back. Samuel Judas Epstein, President and Lord of the Americas, knows that Marcellus is a threat. Marcellus' friends - Jango, Maya, Icarus, and Jennifer - can't quite understand why Marcellus hesitates. He can do whatever he wants. Why should this red-bearded dwarf stand in his way? Of course, Marcellus is in a precarious position. Things are more complicated than he thought. He can't very well tell them his Guardian Angel speaks to him in his dreams. They'd think he was crazy. Later on, Marcellus is banished to the lunar territories. It is there that he meets the infamous general, Munib the Magnificent, the Shadow of God on Earth. It is amidst the peaceful silence and strange beauty of Luna that he is finally able to resolve the conflict simmering inside. He returns to earth. But does he really set things right? Is it even in his power?

Description: Welcome to the Bunker, an orderly, underground utopia where everyone's needs have been satisfied. "Psst! Why don't you take a break for a few stretches, citizen. Your supervisor won't notice. "Haven't heard of Terry Renfield, eh? Maybe you should take this book. Maybe you should read it. Because there's a lot more going on down here than you're probably aware. Terry Renfield knows. He broke through the cheap web of lies. I can show you how he did it. Or does the truth scare you too much? "Control runs this place. It's staffed by Alpha clearance citizens, the brightest and the most trustworthy. They've been tasked with protecting the environment. Otherwise we might destroy this wholesome dreamland of ours like the earthlings did to their home. Control protects us from all the terrorists, too. Traitors and social deviants are everywhere. We must remain vigilant! "You think I'm a terrorist. I can see it in your scared, little eyes. You've seen one too many episodes of Ten Things I Hate About Treason hosted by Van Johnson. You're about to tell me to go get dysentery and leave you alone before the security cameras catch us. "We couldn't live without Control, could we? "Think again!"
