Living History

Rated 2.00/5 based on 1 review
(A story about clones, dinosaurs and the Concept of Benjamin Franklin).

The Salmon Corporation owns the future, and they're in the habit of issuing impossible demands. Jacob White is told to bring certain historical figures back to life; success is expected. Which is a shame, because White can't do it.

So begins the most elabourate bluff in history... and White's rewards will be blood and death.

Reviews of Living History by Ben Essex

Lee Willard reviewed on April 1, 2021

This has artificial recreations of historical characters, a sexy lady assassin, a runaway train and dinosaurs, how could it go wrong? What went wrong is it is all set up to be a rip-roaring comedy, but it isn't very funny. The story is medium length but has the setting and character development of a short story. It takes place in a mildly dystopian world where Little America (the northeast) is under control of a mob-run corporation and Big America (Everything south and west of D.C.) is in a time warp worshiping the past. There's a fair amount of violence that should have been slapstick, but doesn't quite make it. I would choose 'Buddy Holly is Alive and Well on Ganymede' as a much better example of this sub-genre.
