“The Boatyard”

By Octavio C. Rhodes Copyright © 2017   O. Rhodes and Madison              Murrasa

‘Ever wonder what culture wars are really doing to our society?  Find out the real truth when the physical world itself starts to join in on the action.”

The Boatyard is a novel, partially inspired a true story, about how the culture of identity politics almost destroyed an artistic community.  Perhaps the actions of the residents didn’t deliberately mean to destroy the world, but they contributed to its destruction anyways.   Some of my readers best comments describe The Boatyard as a cautionary tale of  P.C culture run a muck; when PC culture pushed too far doesn’t just destroy society, but physical reality itself.  If, as another reader said, the biggest enemy we can face is the enemy of losing our humanity, then I hope this story never comes to fruition!

To read every chapter published in its entirety, just scroll down this homepage; the first post for this book is the preface, titled “Harry’s Letter”.  Comments are welcome…just no trolling for the sake of trolling, please.”
