Reality overtakes fiction, conservative thriller edition

T.W.O and I were working on a trilogy of conservative thrillers planned for release sometime next year.  But they were overtaken by events.  Most of the plot points we painstakingly outlined and developed over a yearish as things that would happen, like, this year happened during the election season instead, rendering the entire enterprise pointless.

We posited a narrow Trump loss radicalizing conservatives into doing something very like wikileaks.  But then wikileaks did it instead.  And also of course Trump won by a landslide.  We also posited various megachurch figures, fictionalized, deciding to go after that audience of alt-right young men starved for father figures.

We even posited what James O’Keefe III does with getting attractive young people to infiltrate left-wing and Democrat groups.

We could probably publish some variation of the original work, but there’d be little point.  It would just seem like a knockoff of current events.  Too bad for us!  Sometimes history is faster on the draw than imagination.

    “We also posited various megachurch figures, fictionalized, deciding to go after that audience of alt-right young men starved for father figures.”

    Is that happening?
