We’ve got a proto-fan here at work. She came to it late (in her 40s) and pretty much is doing that shy, introverted read every SF book ever produced thing that so many of us know so well.
She asked me today (as someone who ‘might know’) if I could help her identify a book for her that she read in either the 1970s or 1980s.
It was a story of a repressive United States (present or future). And a group calling themselves ‘The Minutemen’ are plotting rebellion.
Their plot centers on being a part of the ruling bureaucracy and, when they acheive real power, increase the level of repression until the population revolts, kills the Minutement, and then lets freedom ring.
Any love out there?
