      Parents of children, from the ages of 13-17 are permitted and encouraged by the government to rip their children apart and sell the pieces of their body for money.

This is the type of society that protagonist Connor Lassiter aims to bring down in the epic end to the Unwind Dystology.       I really enjoyed…read more

What if from the age of thirteen to eighteen your parents could unwind you, meaning they could take every piece of your body apart just for misbehaving.  There were three main groups fighting in America’s second civil war.  The Pro-Choice who were in favor of allowing abortion, the Pro-Life who were against abortions, and the U.S. government who were trying to keep both sides from annihilating each other.  The same year that the second civil war started the Nobel Prize went to a man who perfected the ability to graft…read more
