“My ways were not their ways, nor my dreams their dreams. My dreams were in fact made of entirely different stuff from theirs. But now they were all dead, and only I remained alive.”
Welcome to the new normal. In the near future, humanity has been united into a one-world government following an attack by malevolent, mysterious aliens known only as “Overlords.” Despite the supposed threat posed by the aliens, the new Global Government is more focused on cracking down on civil liberties and pacifying the surviving humans with a new designer drug called “zap.” When a man who lost his family during the Overlords’ attack encounters a strange woman in his living room one day, he becomes ensnared in a dark plot reaching the highest levels of world power.
The Insurrectionist is a piercing look at censorship, conspiracy, and social control in the modern era. Andy Nowicki’s first new work of fiction in seven years, The Insurrectionist offers a wry and bleak look at the “crises” plaguing our society and the sinister schemes that may be in store for the human race.
“A dystopic, pharma-fueled, one-man army suicide mission to infiltrate and subvert a bloodline-supremacist global elite engaged in a post-apocalyptic depopulation assault on useless eaters via a full-spectrum, trauma-based mind control program designed to raise a Final Order phoenix from old-normal ashes. What’s not to like?” — Jay Black, author of Guttersnipe
“The most relevant novel to date reflecting on our post-COVID society, Andy Nowicki’s The Insurrectionist is a blend of The War of the Worlds, Brave New World, and your typical fake news channel broadcasts. The story will only seem outlandish and ridiculous to those who haven’t been paying for the past year.” — T.J. Martinell, author of The Song of Wulfgar and The Pilgrim’s Digress
“Andy Nowicki’s The Insurrectionist exists in the space between the Invisible Committee’s The Coming Insurrection and Arthur Bremer’s An Assassin’s Diary. A conflicted young man struggles between the narcotic pull of the invisible oligarchy and the desire to separate oneself from normative society’s necrotic teat, culminating in a spectacular fifth column denouement. A wrathful missive from a possible future that feels all too real.” — James Nulick, author of The Moon Down to Earth
“The first novel to consider the topic of dystopia from a post-COVID perspective, The Insurrectionist is at its most arresting when it reflects on the chicanery of the language with which our real-world overlords engender inaction, surrender, and despair.” — Matthew Pegas, author of Dragon Day
