The Defenseless by Amos Keppler

   530 tightly spaced pages. Paperback edition. ISBN 978-82-91693-26-2

   Release date August 21, 2019.

   Sales price US $25, Europe €20, UK £17, Australia $35 (probably considerably less on some online stores). The novel is 175 000 words, and would have been far more pages if I had used the spacing and font size some established publishers do.

   «Never give up, never give in to the forces alligned against you, or they will surely crush you».


   Some places you can buy this one and others, and description of other Amos Keppler novels

   If the store near you desn't have the book or claim that they can't order it for you, give them the author, title and ISBN number and insist that they order it. Several of the world's largest distributors offer the book. That means it will be available also in non-english speaking countries. If you, for instance live on continental Europe and your store has an English language book section (which most stores have today), it should most definitely be available there.

            THE BOOK

   Ted Cousin is brutally bullied beyond reason at school and by his older brother, ignored and hounded by an uncaring society.
   Denver, Colorado, the United States of America and the entire world in the late sixties is a place and time of hope, of potentially unfettered freedom and upheaval.
   Ted thinks he can see all that or at least glimpse it, catch it on the edge of the eye, But most of the time it eludes him. He imagines he can see a better future, for himself, for his sister Linda and the world.
   But most of the time it’s nothing but mud.
   He is different, somehow. It isn’t just his despair, the vast desolation surrounding him speaking, he knows that, or desperately hopes he does, in the many lonely years ahead. There is something there, on the edge of the eye, something he can’t quite grasp, a spark, one that can change everything.
   The fire stirs within, both burning and warming him. The shadow is both a source of comfort and fear. He reaches for it, for everything that might not be there. In one brutal turn of events he gets his answers, or at least their modest beginnings. The spark is struck, and the violent storm explodes, and terror rises with it, making everything previously look like a pale ghost in comparison.
   The world strikes Ted Cousin with everything it’s got, and he strikes back with equal determination, and lo and behold: it’s an even match…



   In a society placing great value on imposed learning, Amos Keppler has taught himself everything he knows. Among those many things are writing, acting, photography and playing music and theater.
   He is a radical environmental activist, an eclectic witch emphasizing humanity’s unbreakable bond with nature.
   This is the paperback version of his first book.
   His stories are inherently controversial. They go far beyond what most people consider acceptable.
