Judges!
« on: 04 October, 2017, 05:52:50 pm »
Abaddon Books announces brand new series for 2018: Judges!
Quote
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: 2033 A.D
In a time of widespread poverty, inequality and political unrest, Eustace Fargo’s controversial new justice laws have come into effect.


Protests and violence meet the first judges as they hit the street to enforce the Law; the cure, it’s clear is far worse than the disease.


Is this a sign of things to come?

I don't think the year the stories are set in disputes that auspicious date.

My fault; I read "have come into effect" as "have just come into effect," which it doesn't say.

I would just like to register some enthusiasm here as this sounds great to me. I have really enjoyed the novellas and will snap up the Dredd ones on my Kindle as soon as i notice they are available. The year 1 and 2 ones have been great but the Rico one might be my favourite so far. I haven't yet tried the Anderson ones but should probably do so while I wait for this.

In a time of widespread poverty, inequality and political unrest, Eustace Fargo's controversial new justice laws have come into effect. 

Protests and violence meet the first Judges as they hit hte street to enforce the Law; the cure, it's clear, is far worse than the disease. 

Is this a sign of things to come?  Read on for a sample of the explosive first novells, Michael Carroll's The Avalanche...
