Cut-throat enterprise has imposed its will on the planet. Gone are functioning nation-states. Gone is working democracy. Gone is predictable climate. Raw power has blended with technologies of semiotic and cybernetic control to impose mega-corporate rule over the world. To survive, the last active commonwealth on earth must plan a desperate resistance.

From the Back Cover:

In a world run and employed by a single mega corporation, whose reach extends into the very brains of the population, tapping into their fantasies and their base drives at the expense of everyone and everything around them. This technically controlled society is opposed only by the shrinking members of a free-thinking humanity.

About the Author:

Author Kirk Combe believes fiction should not be a pleasant escape from social reality, but an intensive and imaginative exploration of it. 2084 is his first science-fiction novel. A Professor of English at Denison University (Ohio), Combe has authored several books and articles, including A Martyr for Sin: Rochester's Critique of Polity, Sexuality, and Society (University of Delaware Press), Theorizing Satire: Essays in Literary Criticism (St. Martins Press). He has also published works of fiction and poetry in literary journals. Combe has a B.A. from Davidson College (North Carolina) and an M.A. in English, Middlebury College (Vermont). He completed his doctorate and received his D.Phil. in English Literature from Oxford University (England). The author is originally from Idaho, and he has taught at universities in both Europe and the United States.
