SUMMARY: Set in an alternative, yet eerily familiar political universe, this tale of American dystopia insists readers believe (a la Lewis Carroll) six impossible things at once, if not by breakfast then certainly by supper.

The BookViral Review:  In an age where a politician’s every word —and every twitter post—is endlessly scrutinized, End Times: More Great Adventures in Real America proves cuttingly allegorical. Of course, authors have a long history of skewering political systems for tragicomic gain but just because satire is near the knuckle doesn’t detract from the kernels of truth that permeates its pages. Following on from The Execution Channel: A Political Fable, McCord’s latest offering is certainly an indictment of America’s political players and society itself. With its acerbic narrative perspective, dark humour, and even its absurdity it’s hard to deny the ever-present element of plausibility that makes it quite terrifying. Especially when you stop to think what could happen if someone like Lawrence C. ‘Demon Seed’ Bowie came to prominence.

Regardless of which end of the political spectrum you find yourself on, there’s no denying we live in odd political times where truth is often stranger than fiction.  From problematic political structures, shifting societal norms to the rise of celebrity politicians McCord has skillfully highlighted hot-button issues whilst helping us keep our sense of humour along the way.

For readers who love entertainment that makes them laugh out loud whilst highlighting the absurdity of issues that in reality are deadly serious, End Times: More Great Adventures in Real America is a must read and unreservedly recommended.
