How to Kill Your Senator (Short)

I get to be part of a promo for a short story (and consequently, the anthology it pertains to) called How to Kill Your Senator, coauthored by James Courtney and Kaisy Wilkerson-Mills. Set in a dystopian earth roughly 1000 years from now, this story centers on the truth behind government and who is truly responsible for the oppressive laws and terrible ideas. Assuming you, the reader, come from a country where you get to elect officials (and are thoroughly displeased with them), I’m sure you’ll be able to relate to the overarching theme of How to Kill Your Senator.

I enjoyed reading it and I dislike politics and politic-themed books very much. I prefer medicine (helping others) or math (where numbers don’t lie) and other hard sciences. That being said, I enjoyed this. Be aware that it is only a short story and doesn’t get into the details of the world or anything, just simple Jackson Cartwright (no relation to the Bonanza family) and the Senate.

My rating: 4 stars
