Don Sells Second Novel

by Don and Linda Bingle on Oct.22, 2007, under Donald Bingle

Five Star, the imprint that published Don’s first novel, Forced Conversion, several years ago, has agreed to publish his second novel, GREENSWORD, in January 2009.

In the book, Zeke, Milo, and Brandon are struggling to keep their environmental protest group, GreensWord, alive.  It impresses chicks and sure beats getting jobs as corporate serfs in the real world.  But their chief benefactor, movie star Matthew Barrington, threatens to cut off funding unless they stop global warming before his Malibu beach house slides into the storm-tossed ocean.  In their desperate effort to save the beach house and their organization, the GreensWord trio is willing to try almost anything:  drop sugar cubes into the gas tanks of thousands of cars, embark on a high-speed chase to advertise the reflective properties of white car roofs, even engage in a dangerous game of blackmail.  But nothing is fast enough to stop global warming in time. . .until they think of the unthinkable solution …

Now they’re about to save the world; they just don’t want to get caught doing it.

GREENSWORD is a dark comedy about the environment, extremism, stupid criminals, and the lengths to which people will go to avoid getting a real job.

Says Hugo and Nebula Award Winner Robert J. Sawyer:  “Science fiction has always been a great vehicle for biting satire and social commentary — from H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine right on up to Donald Bingle’s engrossing GREENSWORD.   Bingle is a terrific writer.”
