A CULT CLASSIC! – No. 1 Satire on Amazon!
(Top 100 Free Books in Kindle Store – April 10 -11, 2013 and again on July 26 – 27, 2013)
And now No. 1 in Alternative HistoryTop 100 Free Kindle Books, October 8 – 9, 2013.

If you like Kurt Vonnegut, Catch-22, Chuck Palahniuk, the Illuminatus trilogy and the Fu Manchu novels of Sax Rohmer, you will enjoy THE GREAT LEAP FORWARD – a comic fantasy of alternative history that defies categorization.  It has become a cult classic since its original appearance more than 30 years ago.

The year is 1978. China is an isolated empire of conspiracy, deception and delusion.  From Radio Beijing comes the astonishing announcement: China will unilaterally disarm.  Is this a Great Leap Forward for mankind–or a plot to take over the world?

Into this surreal landscape steps Number Five, a master spy of undisclosed nationality.  What he finds in China is so shocking, so strange, so far beyond the usual categories of fact or fiction, that the story of his mission must be passed off as fantasy.  It’s as if Kafka, Borges and Wittgenstein, after binging on Fu Manchu novels and the Illuminatus trilogy, had decided to write a spy novel, with a little help from Lewis Carroll.

Die-hard fans of thrillers and spy novels beware: Don’t buy this book unless you’re prepared to suspend your expectations in favor of a story that’s funny, literate, and trans-genre’d.
