Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

Pennsylvania is a short story, 16,500 words (about forty five pages,) and it is the first in the Pennsylvania series.

Jedidiah Troyer is now a traveler. He has signed up for an emigration program that is colonizing the planet of New Pennsylvania. He just wants to start a farm and homestead on affordable land in a new Amish community. Space pioneering isn't as easy as it sounds when you're "plain." Things might work out for Jed... if he can ever get to his new home.

OMG! It's THAT Michael Bunker! I got this book on one of those free/cheap offers sent by email, the way I buy most of my books. I thought the idea of an Amish sci-fi was insane. Peaceful people who eschew violence in a post-Apocalyptic world? Huh? It was such a crazy idea that I got the thing––and started reading it. Wow! What fun! What imagination! I would ding the author's writing in a couple of places where Jebediah, the hero, responds to a question in what I felt was not an Amish fashion. "Hey, Jed, wuz happenin'?" "Chill, bro. 's'cool." The bits of dialogue weren't that bad, but I felt jarred a bit. The rest of the book. WOW! I bought the whole set and will be reviewing them. Then I read about Michael Bunker and discovered that he is the guy who wrote "Hugh Howey Must Die," probably the funniest book ever written. Bunker wrote "Howey Must Die" while cloistered in some writing contest. You can almost feel the zing of caffeine in that book. Turns out Bunker has written more, a LOT more. So, I've discovered a new writer to charge my way through. Highly recommended.

There I was, reading a David Weber novel one morning at Chick-fil-A, when my friend Mitch learned that my new book was due to be published in August. He said I made four published authors he knew personally. I already knew Mitch was acquainted with Steven Gould, author of "Jumper" and other novels. They had gone to college together. I asked, who are the others?

In reply, Mitch asked if I had ever read "Pennsylvania," the Amish sci-fi novel by Michael Bunker. Thinking, *Amish sci-fi*? I told him, no, why? It was because another author he attended college with, Chris Pourteau, had written some military fiction in the Pennsylvania universe.

*Military* Amish science fiction. What a concept.

I was intrigued, and got a copy of this book ASAP. And it turns out to be military science fiction in its own right, a fascinatingly complex tale that combines Amish philosophy, future military and power technology, and the first really advanced networking concept I've seen in fiction. That the author is a member of a "Plain" community obviously gives him the time and scope to think deeply about what might happen. That, and excellent story-telling skills, make this an outstanding book, whether you read it as the first of a series of novellas, or get the omnibus edition and read it as the first section of a novel.

And now, I move from "Pennsylvania" to "Oklahoma". Immediately, if not Sooner.

Jedediah Troyer wants out – out of a complicated world that fears his simple ways. The only hope for the life he loves is to accept his despotic government’s offer to migrate to a new land of opportunity. It is a place that offers inexpensive, good farming land – on a distant planet called New Pennsylvania.

After years in stasis, Jed finally arrives at this new land, this new planet, of freedom where he can return to the “plain” life. But humanity can never escape itself as he quickly learns. The oppressive government agency that allowed him to migrate is even more controlling than back on earth. A determined insurgency is intent on making that government release its grip on the colonists. And caught between are a people, who like Jed, only desire to be left alone so they can live in peace.

In Pennsylvania, author Michael Bunker gives the reader what many say cannot be done. He offers a rousing tale of adventure and discovery that unapologetically is grounded in his own personal and very real worldview. Bunker doesn’t hide that he has personally chosen the same kind of life that his main character, Jed, yearns for.

At the same time, the reader is not manipulated into accepting any one view point. Jed’s brother has taken a very different and difficult path. Those intent on ensuring this young man realizes his simple and pacifist lifestyle are willing to fight to the death so that he and others like him can have it.

This is a story written on many levels. There are all the mysteries and wonders of interstellar travel, intrigue of shadowy conspiracies, and the struggle for control between competing factions. Beneath the obvious, however, is what happens when everything you know and believe is challenged at its very core.

"Welcome to the world of the English, Jed. Almost no one knows what’s real."

5.0 su 5 stelle "More please!": A Rhyming Review of an Unputdownable Short Story 8 febbraio 2014

Amish sci-fi? Who woulda thunk 'er? Evidently, Michael Bunker. But I can't wait to read the next, to lose myself in his fascinating text...for the next installment I just can't wait, but luckily, I came in late, and a few more stories have already been written! So I'll finish this review and then get back to sittin' with my face in my Kindle and my housework left undone and hope that Michael Bunker writes another one.

Go, Mr. Bunker, go! (And by the way, I have never been inspired to write a RHYMING review before...not sure what came over me.)

Yeah. And you'll be hooked. The ending was a real kick to the head.
Now I'm gonna have to come up with $5 for the whole thing.
Seriously, this was a good, fun read that introduces ideas in which you may have limited experience(or none), and grafts them onto a comfortable genre. There are several other examples of similar thought-experiments, yes. This one has the benefit of a specific perspective that I'd not explored previously.

Of course this one is free. Social media is also an example of how well this model works.
Skip your caramel half-caff skim tomorrow. Do something worthwhile in your budget. Buy the set.
