The political philosophy of anti-woke science fiction
American Greatness: Bruce Oliver Newsome: "The literary elite doesn’t like to admit anti-Marxism as a motivation for great literature. But it is. “Lethe” is a new example of the genre...The details of the fictional world emerge slowly—teasingly, as short asides, while the narrative screams along, punctuated with violence, heroism, despair, discovery, and sacrifice. “Drones,” “mechs,” “plasma,” and “cyborgs” enter with little definition or description, as if written for the science fiction veteran. The twist at the end is terrific. “Lethe” would make a movie as thrilling and dissonant as “The Matrix,” but would be more meaningful."
