Author Jason Mallory, a Dixon High School graduate, will present his new science fiction novella, “Proxy,” from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20, at the UC Davis Bookstore on campus. He’ll be available to sign books after his talk.

Mallory also will be at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in downtown Davis, at 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 24, to present his book and sign copies.

In “Proxy,” the use of robotics as a replacement for human labor has reduced the once working-class people to a state of unemployable poverty, resulting in a near collapse of the world’s capitalist economies. The United Nations struggles to maintain a moral global order as international business organization, Circos, uses control over labor robots and its sovereign financial might to manipulate power from impoverished governments.

While the United States teeters on the brink of a civil war, two presidential candidates of opposing ideologies campaign for different solutions to the nation’s problems, and the world watches as its fate is decided.

The ebook may be downloaded for free in any format at www.smashwords.com/books/view/153452. The download discount code is UW27J.
