One of the things I give c be about small presses is that theyll take chances on authors who write about things exterior of the mainstream. III Publishing has been one of my favorite sources for libertarian/ syndicalist fiction and skill fiction ever since I picked up and totally enjoyed The Last days of Christ the Vampire. Now they bring us two fine contributions to anarchist SF literature. If you loved George Orwells Animal give rise, youll love this "sequel." Many who have read Orwells true missed the basic underlying anti-authoritarian message, instead reading it as an allegory about the Soviet Union. In Anarchist Farm we find an extension service of the philosophies underlying Animal Farm, but this time with a more than social welfare outcome. Contemporary concerns such as ecocide and animal rights are also twine into this readable book. In fact, it is written in a style becharm for teenage readers.

In result to the death of their benevolent owner, the animals turn the farm into a successful anarchist collective. As the months roll by, the animal start to worry about what aptitude happen to them when the humans come to auction off the farm. The ending forget surprise you. It should also be mentioned that the book also deals with monkeywrenching and its consequences. Anarchist Farm is funny, thought-provoking, and inspiring. Its an excellent sequel to Animal Farm. Lets hope that a few more readers "get it" this time. A.D. is a science fiction story set in the U.S.A. in the near future.
