In the year 2999 written history is forbidden. A capital offence. Yet Loeth dreams of writing down the huge inventory of oral histories filling his memory.
The short, stocky Loeth travels the world as a reporter for local news outlets. At the same time, he spies for Ceth, a Sentinel. His journeys bring to light hundreds of oral histories begging to be told to a wider audience.
Supported by a small circle of loyal friends and sexy lovers, using a quill and ink, the 50-year-old Loeth writes a personal memoir that folds into the suppressed history of the world as revealed by the stories he has heard.
He rebels against the Authorities to follow his dream. He rejects the Sentinels' commandment, called a Prock, "there are no yesterdays, no tomorrows, only today". Officially, history did not and shall not exist.
Surveillance by the all-powerful Sentinels is everywhere. Ceth says he will not monitor Loeth's home. Can he be trusted? Anything Loeth writes could be exposed. Loeth's driving compulsion to finish his illicit memoir overpowers his fear of discovery and probable death.
Follow Loeth's and his gifted friends' difficult journey through its many twists and turns to its surprise conclusion.
The seeds of tomorrow's history can be found all around us. In this debut novel, discover Loeth's history of the world as seen from 2999 and the story of Loeth's personal voyage to achieve his goal.
