CHANNILLO
Outland Exile: Book One of Old Men and Infidels
By W. Clark Boutwell

Series Description:

2052 AD- America dies by its own hand.

Generations later, the Democratic Unity arises on the east coast to rule the continent from its citadel, protected by the Rampart from the outlands with its barbarous near-humans and nightmare plants. The Unity, the last high-tech nation, has made itself a utopia, graciously giving to its people full employment, free healthcare, computerless surfing of the nationwide CORE computer, rec drugs at quite reasonable prices, and retirement at forty.

In 2128, MALILA CHIU, an army officer and thus a member of the ruling class, is a middle-aged (17 years old) officer well on her way to high command.

For her sins, both real and manufactured, she is sent to repair a sniffer-station in the hideous outlands. All goes well until she awakes to find herself under the knife of an impossibly old, disfigured, savage, but also middle-aged poet-savage, who claims to be seventy-six.

Acknowledgements:

I would like to acknowledge the hard work and sage advice tendered me by my editors, particularly Patricia Kennedy. Any glimmer of professionalism in these words is due to their careful work and insightful critique, and any remaining gaffes are of my own crafting. I would like to thank all those who have critically read this work and offered their insights, especially James DiPisa, with whom I have shared food, stories, shelter, and danger. Finally, I must thank my ex-wife, Cheryl, for her listening ear while hearing bits and pieces of this book. In addition, I swiped her name for the title. I hope that it doesn’t mind.
