“Asylum, The Circeae Tales” by Ashley Hodges Bazer

Asylum, The Circeae Tales by Ashley Hodges Bazer“Asylum, The Circeae Tales” (2012, ISBN 9781449762247) by Ashley Hodges Bazer is an interesting book. It’s futuristic science fiction — just my cup of (chamomile) tea. Without sounding too arrogantly and irrationally sexist, I was surprised that it was written by a woman (a total geek, no less). It has the kind of short-of-mocking language that a man would use — almost like what I use in my own stories.

The book tells the story of men and women living in self-imposed asylum (hence the name of the book), away from the government that controlled most humans. It gives me the feeling of men and women running away from Orwell‘s Nineteen Eighty-Four. It also reminds me of several stories written by Terry Nation for Doctor Who — especially with John Pertwee (1970-1974) and Tom Baker (1974-1981).

I’d highly recommend it. I’m surprised that I’m not the only one who mixes science fiction with religion. The only difference is that my material’s not censored.
