Here are writing projects for books that have never been published.

albacron1_loresAlbacron: #1 The Heart of the One

{Under the pseudonym of Dakota Orlando.

See www.DakotaOrlando.com right now.}

First in a Series

Want to know where the present-day political phenomenon might lead? The Hunger Games without the games. Where humankind’s inhumanity to humankind is the game in the 28th Century. Where history has culminated in seven hundred years of wealth exploiting poverty! Well—what if poverty fought back?


 “War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.”

1984 by George Orwell


“I’m so tired of being hungry. To be free to live and enjoy life is almost beyond my understanding. To have others look at me and see an equal would be a magnificent luxury. But the reality is … starvation is our livelihood, fear is our security, and hopelessness is our dignity. There is no hope … or is there?”

Electra of Bawl Mehr – In the year 665 A.W. (2730 = old calendar)



Albacron: #2 The Keepers of Tyranny

Second in a Series

What if the rich do get richer? What if the poor do get poorer? Where will it all end 700 years from now? It ends in a land called Albacron… or does it?


“A time will come when a politician who has willfully made war and promoted international dissension will be as sure of the dock [a holding area in a court for the criminally charged] and much surer of the noose than a private homicide. It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men’s lives should not stake their own.”

The Salvaging of Civilization (1921) by H.G. Wells


“We are on the cusp. Starvation is no longer our livelihood, fear is no longer our security, and hopelessness is no longer our destiny. Education can be our salvation. Let us go forth and seek it, the tool to throw off the reins of the oppressor.”

Electra of Bawl Mehr – In the year 665 A.W. (2730 = old calendar)



Albacron: #3 The Guardians of Justice

Third in a Series

After 700 years of a golden age for the elite … After 700 years of another dark age for the destitute … What if the rich became complacent? What if the poor awakened to reality? How would the formula change? It may cause an upheaval in the land called Albacron… or will it?


“[Justice is …] the heart and spirit of men who resist power.”

Woodrow Wilson


“Every state is innocent in its own judgment, yet only the righteous can own justice.”

Alcyon of Roswell – In the year 674 A.W. (2739 = old calendar)



Albacron: #4 The Others

Fourth in a Series

If absolute power corrupts absolutely? If wealth is the root of all evil? Where will it all end 700 years from now? It ends in the land of The Others … or does it?


“We are in danger of destroying ourselves by our greed and stupidity. We cannot remain looking inwards at ourselves on a small and increasingly polluted and overcrowded planet.”

Stephen Hawking


“No matter how honest humanity builds its society, the greed of humanity, if allowed to flourish, will find a way to destroy it.”

Zosma of Roswell, Executive Admiral-  2745 C.E.



Albacron: #5 Sojourner

Fifth in a Series

If exploration is our destiny … If knowledge is our goal … Then why not go out and seek them? They will lead us to the truth … or will they?


“. . . . humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins not just to tolerate, but take a special delight in differences in ideas and differences in life forms.”

Gene Roddenberry


“Until now, humanity’s greatest contribution to itself has been war and stagnation. With the age of misinformation behind us, the universe of knowledge is our apple … just waiting to be plucked and eaten.”

Katherine of Roswell, Full Admiral –  2751 C.E.


All will be released in early 2020
