Editorial Review, SCUM ISLAND, by Michael Lee

Inspired by a survival game called, Scum.

"SCUM ISLAND: Stand for Truth No Matter the Cost" by Michael Lee  is a riveting and intense debut in the SCUM ISLAND Series that plunges readers into a heart-stopping narrative of survival and integrity. Lee masterfully crafts a dystopian world where a brave individual, Fong, finds himself entrapped in a sinister survival game, Scum Island, orchestrated by a malevolent corporation.

The book brilliantly interweaves elements of action, emotional depth, and societal critique. Fong, a 30-year-old protagonist, is a compelling character whose steadfast commitment to truth lands him in a horrifying predicament. Stranded on Scum Island, he must navigate a ruthless environment where survival hinges on earning fame points through battling not just monstrous foes but also fellow captives. Lee's depiction of the brutal rating system and the omnipresent threat of a kill switch adds a chilling layer of suspense to the narrative.

What sets this novel apart is its profound exploration of human nature and morality within an extreme context. The numerical tattoos and shifting alliances within the game serve as metaphors for broader themes of identity, control, and resistance against oppressive systems. As Fong and his allies uncover shocking revelations and face betrayals, they are driven to challenge the very foundations of the corrupt corporation.

Lee's writing is taut and immersive, ensuring that readers are gripped from the first page. The action sequences are vividly described, creating cinematic imagery that heightens the tension. The emotional intricacies of the characters add depth, making their struggles and triumphs resonate deeply with the reader.

"SCUM ISLAND" is not just a story of survival; it is a thought-provoking tale that questions the blurred lines between reality and game, and what it means to stand for truth in a world that rewards deceit and brutality. This book is a must-read for fans of dystopian thrillers and anyone who appreciates a story that challenges both the characters and the readers to think about the cost of standing for one's principles in a corrupt world. Michael Lee's debut promises a thrilling series that will leave readers eagerly anticipating the next installment.

Don't Say Cis (Author Interview)

Can you elaborate on the inspiration behind the title "Don't Say Cis" and its significance in the context of your book?

Cahoon: Interestingly, the first idea I had for this project was the title. It came to me as a reaction to radical tolerance, which from our belief, is rather dangerous. The meaning behind the title is that extreme tolerance leads to the inverse - intolerance against those who you deem evil for not being as moral as you are. Due to this, such tolerance leads to the prejudicial belief that differing thinkers are racist, xenophobic, transphobic, or dangerous before getting to know their character, which is not progressive. These strong prejudices certainly lead to the unfair treatment of certain groups, and within the parameters of our novel, the group that was targeted as radically intolerant was cisgendered individuals. ‘Don’t say’ is a reference to the lack of free speech in this world while also being reflective of society having harsh preconceived perceptions of those who say they are cisgendered. In our book, many citizens have prejudicial thoughts regarding cisgendered individuals because they were indoctrinated to believe there is danger in those who are traditional. These incorrect and unearned moral judgements culminate in the unfair discrimination against our protagonists. We also see other characters like Robin, who deliberately avoid a cisgendered title in order to seem more progressive and be accepted by this ‘tolerant’ society. 

While I align with particular progressive messages advocating for tolerance and love, I strongly believe this should not be an excuse to demonize those who hold differing beliefs, or to silence their voices.

How did your background in clinical mental health and psychology influence the development of the themes in your book, particularly those related to hedonistic nihilism and societal despair?

Editorial Review of "Beyond the Foreseeable Future" by Toni Janet Lamb

Editorial Review of "Beyond the Foreseeable Future" by Toni Janet Lamb

In "Beyond the Foreseeable Future," Toni Janet Lamb masterfully weaves a tale of friendship, ambition, and resilience against a backdrop of societal challenges and personal transformations. The story of Paris Johnston, Constance Shepherd, and Sidnie Kennedy is more than a narrative about college roommates; it's a profound exploration of the unbreakable bonds that shape our lives.

Lamb's characters are richly developed, with each woman embodying a unique blend of strength and vulnerability. Paris's journey from a New York journalist to a changed woman returning from Puerto Rico offers compelling insight into personal evolution. Similarly, Connie's tumultuous path to self-discovery and Sidnie's unwavering resolve as a formidable attorney add depth and intrigue to the story.

The author's skillful portrayal of their intertwined lives against the challenges posed by the police and dark family secrets adds a layer of suspense and drama. Lamb doesn't just tell a story; she invites readers into a world where friendship is a lifeline in navigating the complexities of life and identity.

One of the book's most notable strengths is its ability to balance the personal with the political. The characters' struggles are not just their own but are reflective of larger societal issues, making the novel both relatable and thought-provoking.

However, where Lamb truly excels is in the final act, where the narrative culminates in a satisfying blend of justice and personal closure. Sidnie’s brilliant use of the law and the final personal challenge the women face, are both riveting and emotionally resonant.

In summary, "Beyond the Foreseeable Future" is a compelling narrative that celebrates the power of friendship amid adversity. Toni Janet Lamb has crafted a story that is not only engaging and suspenseful but also a meaningful commentary on the forces that shape our identities and destinies. This book is a must-read for anyone who appreciates a well-told story that resonates long after the last page is turned.

The King and Queen's Prerogative: The Rule of Three Part 1 (Author Interview)

What inspired you to create a story set in a post-apocalyptic world with a blend of science fiction and fantasy elements?

I grew up reading fantasy books and watching sci-fi movies. I often wondered: “What would happen if characters in one world found themselves in the other?” That thought led me down a rabbit hole of questions about reality and world building. After a while, I concluded that the fusion of the two would be so chaotic that the characters would have to deal with some sort of apocalyptic scenario, eventually.

In “The King and Queen’s Prerogative,” how did you approach developing the complex relationship between reality, memory, and identity?

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, and I often had to refer to the textbooks to accurately describe what I believed the characters would be going through. I also researched different philosophers and their works to tie the ideas together.

The Invisible Red String: A love story that transcends time, place, and circumstance (Author Interview)

What inspired you to weave the concept of the 'invisible red string' into a contemporary love story?

Just as the ink flowed, destiny introduced Peter, a maestro of publicity, who breathed fresh vitality into my beloved tomes. Our partnership outdid mere professionalism, as we ventured into profound discussions.

Though oceans and cultures separated us, our bond defied all geographical and societal limits. An extraordinary friendship bloomed, soaring beyond continental boundaries and perceived disparities. We harmonized like yin and yang, merging our creative sparks.

Scepter of the Gods: The Rod of Truth (Author Interview)

Can you talk about the origin of the title "Scepter of the Gods: The Rod of Truth" and how it ties into the book's themes and story?

The title first occurred to me about fifteen years ago when I was envisioning the overall storyline but the initial story first occurred to me forty years ago as part of a Dungeons and Dragons campaign that I created. The idea needed a lot of work and over the years as I saw our technology develop and became fascinated with other things in the news and on TV programs, I evolved how I saw this storyline. I can’t be more specific than that because it would give away spoilers to not only The Rod of Truth, but to the subsequent four books in the series as well. Back to the title question, I knew that the story was too much for one book. I decided to break it into five books but I needed each book to have a standalone purpose so that I wouldn’t have what happens in a lot of series, which is an installment that only serves as a bridge but isn’t a standalone story. To me that isn’t good storytelling. So rather than having one relic or treasure that was the object of a quest, I decided it would be a better story if there were pieces of one relic that had to be assembled. The characters would have to rebuild a powerful item with capabilities mostly unknown until they fully assembled it having faith in a legend that stated this item would restore their civilization. So, I then decided what these pieces would be and gave them names, deciding that the first book would be about the core piece of the scepter, that being a rod and called it the Rod of Truth. The second book will be titled The Rings of Azimuth because one ring will go at each end of the rod, but that’s all I will say about that yet. Each item or piece, such as the Rod of Truth, has properties that tie to values and character and themes that bridge spirituality and functional realism. Each piece also will tie to something having to do with one of our main characters such as Alex and truth, of Phelia’s medallion which for now shall remain an enigma.
