Libertopia announces the best libertarian fiction for 2017: As part of our mission to help encourage liberty in the arts, the team here at libertopia is extremely proud to announce the winner for the Adult Category of our 2017 Art and Creative Writing Contest (Find the details of the 2017 Contest right here)! After J.L Pattison sent us a copy of Saving Kennedy, we read it and found it to be the absolute best fiction with a liberty message that we’ve read this year!
This well-written and exciting book, which incorporates two fictional stories revolving around the events of the Kennedy Assassination, is a thought-provoking look into this fascinating period of 1960’s history. Having recently watched the Twilight Zone series, the comparisons some have drawn between it and the stories contained within this book is pretty spot on. I could almost imagine Rod Serling introducing each story with, “You are about to enter another dimension….” Perfect for teens and adults (and possibly even younger kids), Saving Kennedy does an excellent job at entertaining, while weaving in some great liberty themes and life wisdom without becoming heavy-handed. And it’s “easy to digest” size makes it a great gift for a family member, co-worker or friend.
Saving Kennedy contains two suspenseful tales of time travel gone wrong, both intersecting with attempts to stop the assassination of JFK.
In an effort to bring an urgent message to the past, a time traveler ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time and must rely on a humble corn farmer to deliver his letter to the world. But will anyone believe the farmer’s wild story about the time traveler and his warnings in time to stop JFK’s assassination?
The mission was simple: save JFK’s life by stopping the alleged assassin. But when the time traveler unwittingly becomes Lee Harvey Oswald’s alibi, his mission changes from saving the president to saving Oswald. And the situation only gets worse when the time traveler discovers he’s trapped in 1963. Decades later, when the wife of his future grandson attempts to ensure the mission’s success by confronting the time traveler before his trip, she quickly learns that meddling in the affairs of the past always has its consequences.
