A hidden history…

In the fantasy/science fiction adventure FatLand (Volume I of The FatLand Trilogy), the weight-oriented Pro-Health Laws of the US have become so oppressive that people seeking freedom over their bodies have established a new country where life is good and scales are forbidden. FatLand: The Early Days is both a sequel and a prequel, revealing a hidden history as three archivists set out to discover how FatLand began—and quickly become aware that someone doesn’t want them to know.

Seven thousand miles away a woman summons the courage to write about FatLand’s beginnings, knowing her life will be in danger the moment the FatLand Board receives her memoir.

As the four race to record their findings and insights, the early history of FatLand reveals itself in violence and heroism, and in the bravery, determination and treachery of its founders.

PRAISE for FatLand

“Zellman[‘s writing style] is an intriguing mix of sensualist and minimalist.
Some scenes burst with the sensuality of food, sex, and scenery;
they’re so lush, readers can almost smell or taste them.”

Elle Hill
author of the Hunted series

 “In a future where the authorities maintain ‘Re-Education Centers’ for
those who do not meet government-imposed standards of thinness,
Frannie Zellman’s characters create a territory called FatLand,
400,000-people strong. In FatLand, discrimination is illegal.
Lots of us would line up to become citizens.”

Lynne Murray
author of The Falstaff Vampire Files

“FatLand is fun to read: it’s a great adventure and it incorporates
and combines the charms of mysteries, ‘soft’ science fiction, thrillers,
and erotica. I recommend it to anyone and everyone with enthusiasm.”

Susan Koppelman
editor of
The Strange History of Suzanne LaFleshe and Other Stories about Women and Fatness
