Democracy, Inc.: An American Tragedy

Science Fiction Novel

The United States is no more. Free enterprise has devolved into a world ruled by mega-corporations. The ultra-rich govern from their towers in the sky while the lower class toil in the gutters just to survive. An alliance of corporate states works together to maximize profits and keep the masses placated through the Orbis, a virtual realityscape of online entertainment and the only escape from the bleak reality of existence.

Titus Remington is the son of the CEO of Roman Biogenics, but when the alliance convicts his father of treason, a reluctant Titus finds the mantle of leadership thrust into his hands and must prepare himself to govern his corporate state. However, in his quest to uncover the truth that his father sacrificed everything for, he stumbles upon a dark conspiracy of epic proportions. Now Titus must make a choice: take the throne and wear the crown or risk the wrath of the alliance to fulfill his father's legacy and set things right.

But this isn't the land of the free and the home of the brave. This is a world without justice or hope, a world steeped in corruption and sin, where morality comes in shades of black and gray. This is Democracy Inc., where a life well-led means nothing when pitted against profit margins and the bottom line, and with the odds stacked against him, Titus may very well lose everything.

Death is not the end

A warning from a stranger.

"Nothing you know is real. Your name isn't Shawn Jaffe, you're not an investment broker, and you're not from Ohio."

Even his own memories are suspect.

Someone is watching him, controlling him, using him.

To survive, he'll need to find out who and why.

But the stakes are much higher than one man.

Our humanity is on the line, and on the eighth day, it could be the beginning of the end.

About Joseph


Silvia Sharpe Photography

I took on this mortal coil in 1976 in Omaha, NE. As an only child, my parents were able to devote their existences to catering to my every whim. My Mom started by reading the newspaper to me, ensuring I was up to speed on current events. Once I outgrew the newspaper, she moved on to Golden Books. I read my first novel, Cujo, in the third grade. It hooked me, and I took to main-lining novels and working the libraries like an eight-year-old junky looking to score his next fix. I've been an avid reader ever since, throwing my lot with Frank and Joe Hardy, the three investigators, and much later, Roland Deschain and his ka-tet.

I somehow fooled Uncle Sam into believing I'd one day make a great leader of men, and he promptly shipped me off to the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY, where I languished in a turmoil of emotions ranging from apathy to not giving a damn. This lent me to writing angst-filled poetry and short stories when I should have been paying attention in class or studying in the barracks, thereby resulting in the refinement of my craft and lending credence to that familiar idiom — you know, silver linings and all that.

In 1998, I graduated from West Point and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in Army Aviation. I attended flight school in Alabama, where I learned to wear cool shades and a leather jacket, and something about helicopters. Forgive me. It was some years ago, and my memory is fading faster than a cheap tattoo.

In 2013, I hung up my cool shades and leather jacket and donned a pocket protector and masking-tape-repaired glasses, transitioning from Army Aviation to Operations Research and Systems Analysis. I'd spent the last fifteen years refining my skills and building a solid foundation of knowledge, so I figured what better time than the twilight of my career to throw all that out the window and start from scratch in an entirely new field.

Now I'm serving a hardship tour of duty in Italy, where I spend my evenings sipping wine and riding in gondolas.

So how does the rest of my story go? I'll tell you when I get there; it's still a work in progress.
