Exertions of Better Men

Tortured by grief, Nicholas Smith ends his 21st-century life in an ill-fated suicide attempt. But destiny has other plans and that’s when his 31st-century life begins.

Present-day college professor, Nicholas Smith, finds his life turned upside down when his wife is killed in Operation Iraqi Freedom. In an effort to escape his loneliness, he decides to end it all.

But fate intervenes and Nicholas finds himself thrown into a war-ravaged, post-apocalyptic 31st century where the remains of society are split into two factions: the dictatorial Proletariat Council and the rebels of the Sovereign Brotherhood. Confronted with the atrocities of the Proletariat Council, Nicholas reluctantly takes up arms.

Still reeling from his own personal loss and deeply confused about his displacement in time, Nicholas must reconcile his convictions with what those around him say is his destiny. He must decide exactly what duty means and how far he will go to defend what is right. $1.99 on Kindle.
