Campaign 2100 is fun political satire that mocks both sides and lands a little left of center. Hodges takes the absurdities of our current American political system and projects them to an even more absurd extreme in the year 2100, then plops an incredulous alien right into the midst of election season. The book touches a few contemporary political issues, but focuses on futuristic issues like the ethics of full-immersion virtual reality and the politics of first contact.

If I had to pick one word to describe this novel by Larry Hodges, the one I would pick is fun.

Light spoilers ahead What I enjoyed about the novel probably the most was actually the world building. In this sci-fi satire, the entire world is one big government, and it has adopted the american electoral college for its elections.

They get their candidates elected by any means necessary. At the opening of the book they are working on the re-election of the current president, Corbin Dubois of France. Then an alien lands outside of the United Nations, sayi ...more

Larry Hodges, from Germantown, MD, was going to be a math professor (bachelor's in math), but science fiction writing and table tennis (yes, ping-pong) sidetracked him, and now he writes (and coaches the latter) for a living. He is an active member of Science Fiction Writers of America with over 80 short story sales. "Campaign 2100: Game of Scorpions" is his third novel, and combines three of his ...more
