Brave New Foghat

I think I'm going to write a book.

It will be a science fiction work based in the not-too-distant future. It will describe a carefree, healthy, and technologically advanced society based upon the songs of the 70's rock group Foghat.

The book will be a social satire whose main storyline will center around a self-help book similar to Who Moved My Cheese except unlike being a passing fad like WMMC this self-help book - which advocates taking the lyrics of Foghat to heart - literally transforms society. Special attention is paid to people becoming Fools for the City and to the emotions (or lack thereof) to I Just Want to Make Love to You.

People will all live in cities and constantly be engaged in coitus. Oh - and they will also take copious amounts of soma. The book won't be fast paced. It will be more of a Slow Ride of a read.
