In the race to be king, there can be only one winner
Tag, Red Rover, King of the Hill…children’s games are an allegory for real world competition.
Think of the race for President of the United States as a game of Tag, with the entire country as the playing field.
The candidates, usually boys, are the players.
Before long, the players realize that no man is an island and they form two teams. Eventually the leader of the first team emerges. It takes a while longer, but the second team eventually decides which of the two forerunners should be their rightful leader.
But that’s not enough. In the game of Tag, there can ultimately be only a single winner, the King of the Hill. The race for King is cutthroat. Lives may be lost, reputations tarnished, back-alley deals are struck and broken. They say that to the victor goes the spoils—in this race, the victor will take his spoils, even if it he must turn his kingdom into a vast wasteland to get them.
EMSA Publishing is pleased to announce the release of Tag: A Cautionary Tale by John Collings. A contemporary, young adult, satire that draws parallels between the world of politics and the games children play. The world of politics is a high-stakes, dangerous game; playing Tag on Arabella Hill is no different.
In the race to rule Arabella Hill, there can be only one winner. Read Tag: A Cautionary Tale by John Collings to find out who will reign supreme.
John Collings‘ Tag: A Cautionary Tale is scheduled for a July 5, 2016 release (though it is already available in stores).
