John Blossom’s young adult science fiction “The Last Football Player” was showcased by self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet at the 2023 Frankfurt Book Fair, which took place at the Frankfurt Trade Fair grounds in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, last October 18-22, 2023.

ReadersMagnet supports independent and self-published authors, helping them to grow their readership base, boost their marketing efforts, and connect with fellow authors.

At the 2023 edition of the book trade fair, the works of authors from the ReadersMagnet roster had the opportunity to be checked out by approximately 215,000 attendees.

Set in the year 2055, “The Last Football Player” follows Dude McPherson, a rising 9th grade wide receiver whose opportunity to be a star is denied because his influential Silicon Valley father leads a successful movement to ban football. To gain back the trust of his fellow football players at school, Dude has to embark on a quest to make football safe enough to play again – even if it means using robotics.

Relegated to an after-school program in his school’s state-of-the-art Tech Lab, Dude would rather be on the football field until his new team of teen techie geniuses suggests a highly innovative solution. He and his team are challenged with AI robots with self-awareness, a universal printer, computer-generated creativity, human-robot interfaces, and other realistic future resources to learn about the values and priorities of the football world.

Can they preserve football in its physical and creative glory in the face of relentlessly advancing technology and the growing appetite for ever-increasing violent action?

Experience the futuristic version of football in John Blossom’s “The Last Football Player,” available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
