The place is the United States. The time, the near-future, 2020-2040. Here, justice is blind & the ranks of the disenfranchised have swollen to a toxic level. High-tech rules the day while human nature, for better or worse, remains constant. In nine interwoven tales, Mosley paints a keen if fictional portrait of what the future could hold if our own political climate continues. From Ptolemy Bent, the child genius whose act of mercy lands him in the world's first privatized prison, to Fera Jones, a heavy-weight champ who gives up the ring for a political career, characters appear & reappear in different storylines as everyone tries to survive a fast & furious FUTURELAND.Mosley, Walter is the author of 'Futureland' with ISBN 9780446529549 and ISBN 0446529540.
