Installment One of my Brave New World Novel

The genesis of this novella in progress was a short story I wrote a few years back.  I never felt satisfied with it, feeling it needed a longer treatment.  I have already begun work on that treatment.  The opening sequence is below.  To check out the short story and some other tidbits, go here.

Many joke about world domination but no one expected someone to actually try to get it. What happens if someone tries, and actually succeeds? In this short story, the attempt is described and the results are disconcerting, to say the least. Questions emerge: does might make right? Why not? Are our actions predetermined by the laws of nature? If so, can we be blamed for anything we do? Even if that something is trying to take over the world? Who are we to get in the way of the ambitions of a madman?

You couldn't get Sid Cynic to believe anything he didn't see with his own eyes. You can imagine his dismay when cars started relying on computers. As a mechanic with a skeptical bent, there was a lot going on that one couldn't see. Sid Cynic knew that real life happened in full color. The rest was rubbish.

In this tale exploring the limits of faith, revelation, and empiricism, Anthony Horvath paints a picture of what can happen when one puts their trust in the wrong place.
