In Memory of the Defeated – or why I am writing this series

“When the victors write the history,

it’s another kind of war.

waged after the battlefield killing is done,

to murder the memory of the defeated”

Altered Carbon;  Season 1, Episode 2: Fallen Angel

-I started watching that series on Netflix today (season 2 is already running).  When I heard that line, I paused the screen, grabbed a pen and paper, put on the subtitles and skipped back to make sure I got it all right.

This is EXACTLY why I decided to write and am still writing this series of novels about those fighting Alexander: so that despite 23 centuries of  murder by the victors and the historians and politicians who continue to do the killing, that the memory of the defeated may live on.
