Are there any lovers of dark, dystopian literature on your holiday gift list?

Then please consider surprising them with “The Pustoy,” an outstanding book of poetry by Philippe Blenkiron.  It’s a science fiction and political epic in poetry format, describing future Britain’s rule by a genocidal dictator who scapegoats an underclass to facilitate his rise to power.  It’s quite dark, and I quite loved it.  Click the link below to read my review last year:

A frightening future, skillfully envisioned — God help “The Pustoy.”

“The Pustoy” is also easy to purchase in either paperback or Kindle format.  You can find it at Amazon right here:

I suggest that this would make an excellent gift for lovers of books like George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-four” or Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451.”  And its format in verse would make it an even more interesting companion book.
