If one were to describe this epistolary misadventure, then one could say that if Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day and Montesquieu’s De l’Esprit des Loix did that famous fusion technique, the result may very well be To my Maya – Correspondence of War.
This tale is de facto a sick hybrid ‘twixt Sci-Fi and a pure philosophical treatise. It recounts the exploits and plunders of Callias, an elite commander within the ranks of a New Empire, one that has risen to consume all the known governments in our contemporary world - and enslave all its peoples.
Under the rule of the Senate, and above these standing the hierarchical and mysterious Philosophers, we get to comprehend the mannerisms and ideology of this New Empire as it slowly, but surely, extends its rule over all nations. Added to the collective and individual quirks of this Empire, which are illustrated through Callias’ own missives to his beloved wife Maya, we also get profound and detailed analyses of each and every nation that Callias and his soldiers topple, which ultimately transform into a global critique of our modern globalist society.
In conclusion, if you, like the wretched soul who wrote this dark epos, are somewhat disenchanted with society as you know it – in particular the occidental socio-political context – and if, per chance, you are not shy in reading how grubby politicians are systematically and ritualistically slaughtered, then this may be the book for you!
