I know I’ve been MIA for awhile now (work, work, work), but I’m back and I’d like to welcome Christian Baker on the blog today! He is the author of The Bleak Door, a science-fiction horror novel filled with dystopian themes of this Big-Brother figure that oppresses its citizens.
Synopsis: “The President of the United States is abruptly hit by a serious and unknown disease. Suddenly, and while his successor was being discussed, he miraculously recovers. Relief rapidly spreads among his assistants and public opinion. The most powerful man on the planet has come back. Or, at least, that is what everyone thought.
A different enemy, beyond our understanding, expands his webs. Soon changes in laws, persecutions, and weird and flabbergasting experiments start to take place. A top-notch interdisciplinary team is clandestinely put together in order to grasp the inexplicable and thus put up some sort of resistance. They were not aware that the knowledge of that truth might only be the beginning of the nightmare.
The Bleak Door tells us about a world becoming oppressive, violent, without any clear apparent reasons. It faces us with complex questions of our inner self and our response towards manipulation both from an individual and a social level. It positions us before our selfishness, our decisions. And, above all, their consequences.
An electrifying, obscure, fast-paced story from its very first page. SCI-FI Thriller.”
