9781939815040: Teres: A Novel by Gershom Reese Wetzel

"Teres unflinchingly delivers Wetzel's message while offering blistering hi-tech action set against the backdrop of his dark vision of the future." ~ George Wright Padgett, Author of Spindown and Doure Sint

Meet Teres Norman, Maxyra police officer of Talonia -- America's future form where religion is confined to quarters -- where science, technology, and politics are saving the day one ruin at a time.

Little do her squad mates know, Teres has a secret -- a miraculous secret -- that threatens to put her on the run from the very government she loyally serves.

As Teres' hunt for a ghostly madman takes her across the globe, she soon discovers that religious zealots and Talonian Law are the least of her worries.

From the Author:

I completed the first draft of Teres in the spring of 2006.  And chickened out on publication.  The story itself is an amalgamation and outpouring of all of my childhood influences, ranging from The Bible to the works of Robert A. Heinlein, from The Terminator to Robotech, from Dark Angel to X-Men and Ghost in the Shell.

As for themes and such amid "blistering hi-tech action" in a dystopian future nation, I suppose I'm asking the compound question, "What do we have, and what are we trading it for?"  There's that song Big Yellow Taxi, that says, "You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone."  Is that the only way we learn to appreciate "the good old days?"

Thank you for taking a look.  I hope you enjoy all 394 pages.  Especially Chapter 8.

From the Back Cover:

"Theological cancer has crippled our people and polarized them toward war, prejudice, and a hatred for their fellow man.  ...I ask for your open-mindedness and your cooperation in this effort to excise the festering rot from our great and glorious nation."     ~Jernigan Talon
