It could have been non-fiction, but then it would have been less interesting and less all-encompassing.

Guy Cavet Myhre, author of the science fiction novel “The Fetal Issue” (published by AuthorHouse), which is getting a revived marketing push in September 2013, sees the world standing at a crucial turning point in which citizens and people in power are debating moral and ethical issues surrounding abortion, birth control, pollution, pro-life versus pro-choice and global warming. Hoping to bring these issues to light for readers, he offers an entertaining futuristic world to consider in this story of one possible direction he envisions humanity taking.

“The Fetal Issue,” set in a possible future, tells the story of a mother and daughter locked in a battle over their opposing radical beliefs about how the pregnant daughter should deal with her “fetal issue” should it prove to be deformed. The mother’s beliefs are grounded in her experience of also giving birth to a deformed child, and the daughter takes the exact opposite extreme belief of her mother. As they clash over the issue, their points of view gradually gravitate toward each other’s. Eventually, the mother and daughter’s extreme beliefs are both completely reversed, putting them on opposite sides of the arguments once again.

“This book is a futuristic sociological novel, which alerts the entire world to the direction in which our civilization is headed,” Myhre explains. “It could have been non-fiction, but then it would have been less interesting and less all-encompassing.”

Myhre crafts a future mired by pollution, overpopulation, environmental degradation, genetic degeneration and social deterioration. He sees all of the crises as possible – maybe even probable – problems facing society. But through the book, Myhre offers ideas about possible solutions to these problems.
