Past and Future Tense
Rewriting the History of the World
This is what I call a Utopian novel because I intend to describe a perfect world in it. You may call it action-adventure, science fiction, or whatever pleases you, so long as you read it. There is not an original idea in the book. The ideas that are in the book are the result of much and varied reading and life experiences. Many of the ideas that I present are now in various stages of development, but I improve the science and the technology until I have the product that I wish. The novel is set three thousand years ago in Florida, in the Tampa Bay area. Settlers are transported to this place in an exotic vehicle named Excalibur. It is commanded by a man named Arthur, who is a direct descendent of King Arthur. Excalibur is presented to Arthur by Merlin, a very old and powerful wizard. The settlers build a city called Utopia which is governed by a computer called Michio. The government is a technocracy and it is a benevolent dictatorship. The book is small because I have eliminated so many institutions, government, and religious organizations. For example, there are no prisons because there are no criminals. The really bad actors are eliminated; zapped, turned to smoke and ashes. I will guide you through this and I expect that you will find few flaws in my reasoning.
