Hour 1: Eytan Kollin
Joining Amerika Now during the first hour of the show is author Eytan Kollin to discuss he and his brother, Dani’s, novels regarding the future of humanity in the Unincorporated series.
Author siblings Dani and Eytan Kollin’s debut novel, The Unincorporated Man, was designated a SciFi Essential and went on to win the prestigious 2010 Prometheus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel of the year. Their second and third novels, The Unincorporated War and The Unincorporated Woman were also nominated for the same award. Their fourth novel, The Unincorporated Future, was released in August of 2012.
What would it be like to awaken from a 300-year cryonic suspension into a world that has accepted an extreme form of market capitalism? That’s the premise of Eytan and Dani’s first novel, The Unincorporated Man, in which a brilliant industrialist named Justin Cord awakes to find himself in such a world–a world in which humans themselves have become incorporated and most people no longer own a majority of themselves.
What would it be like to be the last free person in the human race, owned by no one and owning no one? Could it really happen?
Eytan Kollin is a teacher of history, government and economics currently living in Denver, Colorado. His hobbies include historical reenactments, chess, and battle recreation with historical melee weapons.
