“The Resurrection of Samuel Clemens” offers a glimpse into the future by relating the story of Samuel Langhorne Clemens (Mark Twain) as he is resurrected back to life in the year 2061. Grant Wakeman, a Twain aficionado, has the privilege of welcoming Mr. Clemens to a world wherein almost everything has drastically changed: the ‘unholy trinity’ of corrupt politics, hypocritical religion, and greedy commerce has been eradicated. Politically, there is one world government. As to religion, there is no longer a professional clergy class. On the economic front, cooperation has superseded competition.

"The Resurrection of Samuel Clemens" depicts a future world of equality and personal fulfillment. Although everyone who longs for a better world will be interested in this novel, Twain enthusiasts (Twainiacs) especially will find it fascinating, as countless references and allusions are made to events in Clemens' life and passages from his writings.About the Author:
Clay Shannon, like Samuel Clemens, has worked in various occupations, ranging from cowboy to computer programmer and from laboratory technician to interpreter at an outdoor museum. Also somewhat Twain-like, Shannon has lived in seven states and visited forty nine. A native northern Californian, Shannon has resided in Angels Camp (the location of "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County") as well as other towns in that county.
