So, what is “Going Gone” about, exactly?
It’s about a modern day Franz Ferdinand.
You remember Ferdinand, whose assassination was the fuse that ignited the powdered know known as World War I?
But who was Franz Ferdinand, really?
Simply the right human domino, pushed over at the right (or wrong) time.
”Going Gone” takes this historical example and updates it, setting the scene for another set of calamities in our modern time.
But this anthology is not a play-by-play of government actions and military reactions. It is comprised of 12 stories from 12 very different viewpoints.
Yes, some of them will be from the vantage point of powerful people as they attempt to mitigate a coming geopolitical and military storm. But others are very personal, and about everyday people coping with what has befallen both America and the world.
It’s sometimes thrilling, sometimes funny, sometimes sad. It’s heartbreaking and tremendous and a catalog of humanity.
In this way, ”Going Gone” is about all of us. What we would face if something like this happened.
What we could face.
And, more importantly, it’s about where we find ourselves when all we know is lost…
