Welcome to the official Terror Quest blog...This is the home of Maxwell Silver, author of the book Terror Quest from Abuzz Press.

Terror Quest is the story of how two people, people no more powerful than you or I, combine to help bring down a repressive government which came to power through hacked election software. Until they can manage that feat, the people of the great state of Ohio are enduring a religious regime as strict as that imposed by the Taliban. As much as the men suffer, life for the women is ten times harder. 

Life is this hard under the Tariq Shifa, the Road to Recovery from economic crisis:
