I’d like to hopefully draw attention to a short story titled “Lone Star Planet”, alternatively “A Planet for Texans” (available from the Gutenberg Project) written by Henry Beam Piper and John Joseph McGuire and published in 1958. It describes an unusual political system that I believe libertarians everywhere would enjoy, and statists will be horrified by (which is a good thing). I will try to avoid spoiling the plot, except for the description of the politics, and a minor event that demonstrates it.

Science Fiction and Fantasy writers and readers have historically been at the cutting edge of some of late 20th and early 21st century’s social and political trends. Now, Obsolete Press (obsolete-press.com) is compiling an anthology of new and classic SciFi writing and art that addresses anarchy, anarchism, and the move to a Stateless society. Writers and artists can find submission information at the end of this article.
