Best Visionary Fiction & Best Cover Design
Inferno, a dystopian novel, explores the social, political
and economic forces that cause the breakdown of civilization;
the incidents, people, and obstacles that seem to rip the world
apart at its seams, test our ethics, and show us a
vision of our environment inverted directly upon itself.
The world as we know it has become a history hidden by layers of ash.
The great Democracy of the Magistrates has spread itself far and wide.
The sound of the anthem can be heard ringing across the desert wasteland.
The promise of a world purified of the Red People, peals out from behind
the High Magistrate’s golden mask. The mantra:
civility justice strength
follows the metronomic march of the Black Boots as they police the Capital.
Imprisoned as a traitor, Blum’s one comfort is the memory of his beloved
Isabelle, whose brutal execution haunts him in his waking hours and dreams.
As the inferno burns within him, Blum makes an unholy pact, denouncing his
mortal soul for an opportunity at vengeance. However, as his quest for
revenge wages onward, he realizes that the price of
his soul may not be enough to redeem her.
