It can happen here

My byzantine, nearly published, SF novel revolved around a global peace movement protesting a war that didn't exist. The protests were a form of historical reenactment in a world addicted to simulation. Protest as dress-up and play-acting. Nostalgic, trendy role-playing, without any sense of what the reality actually means.

A clever idea. A little on the smug, snarky, snotty side, maybe. But clever.

I never for one freaking instant imagined it would actually happen.
