Description:
FORWARD TO THE PAST

The year is 2065. Decades ago, the United States of America fell apart after four brutal years of civil war, and the fragments coalesced into new nations divided by economic and political rivalries. Most of post-US America is wracked by poverty and civil strife, with high-tech skyscrapers rising above crowded, starving slums -- but one of the new nations, the Lakeland Republic of the upper Midwest, has gone its own way, isolated from the rest by closed frontiers and trade embargoes.

Now Peter Carr, an emissary from the newly elected administration in the Atlantic Republic, boards a train to cross the recently reopened border into Lakeland territory on a mission that could decide the fate of his nation. Ahead of him lies a cascade of experiences that will challenge his most basic assumptions about economics, politics, and the direction history is moving. Alone among the post-USA republics of North America, the Lakeland Republic has achieved prosperity and internal peace, and it's done so by modeling its future...

...on the past.

Introducing MYTHIC: A Quarterly Science Fiction & Fantasy Magazine

Hello everyone. While we haven't mentioned much here at the Founders House website, I will say that we have been prepping the last few months for the launch of this magazine project for some time. I am personally very happy to announce that the first issue of MYTHIC is now available for purchase. I have the pleasure of editing this debut publication devoted to finding and sharing great sci-fi/fantasy stories.

Here is the short description of Issue #1: Winter 2016:

Welcome to the first issue of MYTHIC: A Quarterly Science Fiction & Fantasy Magazine. This new publication of science fiction and fantasy stories hopes to open up the general to broader, more diverse explorations. Seeking to break out of the worn conventions of both genres, MYTHIC collects stories that push the boundaries, but also provides a home for familiar ones as well.

You can purchase individual copies by visiting www.mythicmag.com or via many other booksellers and retailers such as Amazon.

Those interested in subscribing may purchase 1-year subscriptions as well. Check the MYTHIC website for more information.
