The Games Go On is a science fiction future-sports tale, published as part of the first Delirious Doubles e-book by Nomadic Delirium Press in August 2018. It also touches on issues to do with the environment, mass media, and abortion.
Jayneth Preston is born into a claustrophobic world, where she is expected to fight to the death for the amusement of the masses. But where did she come from, and does she have a family waiting for her on the outside?
Here is the blurb for the e-book:
Delirious Doubles presents two stories from different authors. This edition gives you The Impossible Child by Tyree Campbell…a woman from another world has come to Earth to study the fallen society of the planet. Early in her mission she is raped by a gang of marauders and becomes pregnant with a daughter. Now that it’s almost time to return to her own world, she must decide what to do with her young daughter…take her with her or leave her behind on the hostile planet…or does she even have a choice.
You also get The Games Go On by Mike Morgan…a woman is born as an adult into a world where her family has sold her into indentured servitude as a gladiator, a gladiator that is meant to fight for the masses, but when there are no battles, she begins to wonder what’s really going on, and once she learns the truth, she’ll be forced to decide what to do with the information.
