Greek Author Publishes Novel
January 17, 2019 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) The Eleven-Day Week, a new book by Manos Megalokonomos, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
For many years now, the fate of humanity has been moving, step by step, along a prearranged path leading inevitably and without exception to a state of subjection to total physical and mental control. Insurrections to improve the lot of humanity will no longer be effective since the financial powers and seats of authority will in a few decades have become technologically so completely unassailable that no movement will be capable of defeating them. And since the large number of brave individuals needed to begin a revolution will by then be powerless, such an event would be quite impossible. Perhaps, however, against all the odds, there will be a few individuals with such a capability.
Often in the past, history has evolved into a myth. This novel, in reverse, recounts a myth that has every chance of becoming, in the future, history.
