Brodey Fobes about this book: Contention is the manifestation of my passion for science fiction which goes back to my early childhood exposure. What always fascinated me was its inherent ability to take you into a completely new world and rebuild your understanding and hopes for the future. What I wanted for Contention was to take the ingenuity of sci-fi and cross it with the believability which makes non-fiction so popular. Too often I read books where the author briefs over a section because they are not familiar enough with the realities and nuances of that particular field; I did not want that.
I wanted anybody with any expertise to be able to read my book and say "Yes, that is true" or "Yes, it would happen that way". That, however, wasn't enough. As I attended college I realized that I had a deeper interest in the realm of abnormal psychology especially regarding P.T.S.D., and psychopathy. I wanted to include what I learned in my work to take it to the next level, and to delve into the human psyche in order to make my characters both more believable and more relatable. My goal was to then take that and package it into a thrilling and conflict driven novel that would both fascinate and educate. With that in mind I humbly present for your enjoyment, Contention.
