San Diego, CA, USA – WEBWIRE

The world is getting older. People live longer now on average than any time in history. The world is getting younger. The average age of people in some countries has dropped into the mid-teens.

W. Clark Boutwell mesmerizes readers at the 2023 London Book Fair with the first book of his Old Men and Infidels trilogy, “Outland Exile: Book 1 of Old Men and Infidels”. The book trade fair was held at Olympia London, London, UK, last April 18-20, 2023.

Boutwell’s 2016 Pinnacle Award-winning political science fiction book introduces the dystopian United States after catastrophic wars and the Meltdown. In this America, strangely altered plants dominate, and savages inhabit the outlands. At the East Coast citadel, a community called The Unity rules the area, providing free health care, computer-less surfing for its massive CORE, full employment, and recreational drugs.

“Outland Exile” follows a young Lieutenant named Malila Chiu, a veteran officer with well-earned fame, but finds her career in tatters. One of the reasons for her tattered career is vandalism at a distant “sniffer” station. She and her platoon embark on a mission to fix the issue at the station. During the mission, Malila finds herself waking up with a knife on her throat, discovering that her platoon has been murdered by a hideously ancient savage, Jesse Johnstone.

The author plays around a strong-willed female lead in a dystopian tale to share and provide readers insights into a parallel futuristic world as a result of a type of governance and rebellion that could paint the new face of America.

Readers can purchase their copy of W. Clark Boutwell’s “Outland Exile: Book 1 of Old Men and Infidels” on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
