Told from a vantage point of long ago and far away, Ali Dubyiah and the Forty Thieves reconstructs—from the recently discovered journals of Ibrahim Barzouni—the tale of the ruler George W. “Dubyiah” Fratbush, son of the earlier monarch Wimpbush, and the Fall of the American Empire. After Ali Dubyiah ascends to the kingship, his lust for power draws him into a gambit to take possession of the world, together with his band of thieves—including Dick Chaingang, Donald Rumsfailed, and Paul Werewolf. Donning his warrior’s garb, Dubyiah battles the evil Saddam Gomorrah and Osama bin Hiden, but how long can Ali Dubyiah lie, cheat, and steal before his subjects rise up against him? Ali Dubyiah and the Forty Thieves is an ancient morality play with starkly contemporary overtones. It is as old as the human comedy and as modern as television news reality programming. It has great historic validity. It is a satire, a cautionary tale, and a fable in the genre of political-science fiction.
