Please take a brief moment to subscribe right now to the Jeff Einstein 2.0 email newsletter. Each email delivers something new and unique directly to your inbox: either a fresh chapter of The Golem and the Messiah, my exciting new serial novel about what happens when the technomedia elite take over in the very near future, or a fresh and entertaining perspective on another social issue from yours truly, the original Digital Apostate.
“The Great Culture War ended in the spring of 2030, when a coterie of commercial technomedia elite in New York City, Los Angeles, the Greater San Francisco Bay Area and Washington DC purchased bloodless coups in their respective markets and declared their independence as vassal-state members of the new Utopian Federation. The handful of municipal leaders who couldn’t be bought outright or otherwise refused to cooperate were summarily destroyed in the media and forced to resign. Within a week, Diversity Councils were established in each new jurisdiction with the supreme power to author, impose and enforce uniform cultural narratives and lifestyle mandates through regional offices of what would soon become the most feared and efficient security apparatus of the new Federation: the Hate Crime Authority.”
The novel opens two decades later in the year 2050 with Federation founders and arche architects Maria Perez and Jake Kassman on the run from their own Frankenstein creation and soon to confront their destinies in the diminutive form of a young girl outlaw, a Brooklyn-born faith healer and heir apparent to a vast underground resistance.
