Initially published some years back by Bantam Books, CITY WARS is available for the first time now as a Kindle e-book from amazon. In a not-too-distant future, the country’s major cities have evolved into warring city-states, a la Athens and Sparta. Isolated from each other by vast, untamed distances, Chicago and other major cities arm themselves with weapons and paranoia.

When New York seems to launch a rogue attack on Chicago, the city musters its forces to strike back. Meanwhile, an unlikely relationship develops between a government agent and a military strategist charged with heading up the Chicago forces.

CITY WARS  is available from Amazon.


“CITY WARS is a one-of-a-kind, franchise-friendly, big action sci-fi thriller.” — Vince Gerardis, award-winning Executive Producer of HBO’s series GAME OF THRONES
