The Best Shall Rise New San Francisco is the last city standing on a

world ravaged by storms of ash and debris. The city survived by

putting the ideals of the American dream on steroids and inspiring its

people to persevere, though they have become ruthless in the

process. Its citizens are ruled by the General, who has made sure that

his people understand that gentleness and pity have become

weaknesses that nature no longer tolerates. Now Steve

and Leslie must choose whether they will apply for the General’s once

in a lifetime opportunity to “Rise from the Ashes” and join the Inner

Circle that rules the city. If they don’t, they will be damned to spend

the rest of their lives in the ghettos of Edingburg, a place where virtual

reality has become a government-subsidized addiction. For

Steve, the choice is easy. His loyalties lie with the IRA, a revolutionary

army led by a voice only known as “Mom.”

They are trying to overthrow the General and free the people of New San Francisco from

the cruelties of the City Guard. Steve’s mission is to broadcast a

recording of a speech that a famous philosopher died to tell. Many

thousands have and will perish to get this message out, but is anyone

willing to listen?

About the Author

Bob Collopy was raised on southern values. A world of rigidity and blind faith.

He was then moved to Sedona. A near cultlike world, grown from 1960’s flower children.

He was then moved to Scottsdale. A world of extreme wealth and vice. He then went

to college and joined a fraternity so notorious it was on national and world news multiple times. Due to these shifts, Bob always found himself the semilucid

observer; constantly confused and adjusting to new and opposing sets of

norms few cultures would ever call normal or even acceptable. The city Bob has created

is a blending of these intense and opposing cultures and the peopletrying

to survive and conquer them.
