About the author

James Thomas Lukasavage

<p>Dear Reader,</p> <p>I began researching and writing Beyond Dystopia! several years ago, and I hold myself personally responsible for its contents. Still, as far as I am concerned, who I am is unimportant.</p> <p>What is important to me is this book, for it is my contribution to the world of human commerce, which, fortunately, still includes ideas.</p> <p>Now, because I understand that it is only natural for people to want to know something about&nbsp;the author whose book they have taken the time to read, I will tell you this:</p> <p>I am fifty-three years old, I am a US Army Cold War Era veteran, I hold a High School Graduation Equivalency Diploma (GED) and an Associate Degree in Social Science, and I live&nbsp; with my fifteen-year old son, my paramour, one tenant, and a tuxedo cat named Mr. Ami&nbsp;in a drafty&nbsp;old house with a leaky roof on a heavily trafficked street in Ithaca, New York.</p> <p>I began writing as a means of escape when I was about nine years old, and for public consumption back in 2007 as an unpaid opinion writer&nbsp;for a small newspaper called the Ithaca Times.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>It is my hope that reading Beyond Dystopia! will help you in some way, and that I&nbsp;can pay my school&nbsp;taxes.</p> <p>Sincerely,<br /> James Thomas Lukasavage</p>
