One of my hobbies is comparing works of fiction that were ... well... fairly obvious works of fiction in their time, against subsequent facts that then slice down the fiction aspect. Fortunately, the Fiction Backdrop is a fair deal less horrific than the way things really played out, though I'm starting to think we're seeing the True Cost of Gore not winning in 2000.


My top works under study are:


Tom Clancy's Executive Orders: Predicted the Worst Case scenario of 9-11 if we hadn't shoved that Fourth Plane to the ground.


Irving Wallace's The Man, which deals with a trumped up charge of racism to Impeach the First Black President of the United States.


There's more too. There's a novel about digital Elections, stories by Isaac Asimov, and more.
