About the author:

Sam Cunningham is a small college physics teacher. He knows from personal experience with his pupils that through nurturing nearly all young people can become productive citizens. It is an overwhelming tragedy that so many poor children are not given this nurturing. Their personal loss, and the loss to their country of their productive ability, is a catastrophe. As a scientist he understands that critical thinking and following where the evidence leads are the only reliable ways to understand the real world. Away from work he leaves the real world of hard evidence to read science fiction and fantasy. His favorite childhood movie was the Walt Disney 1940's cartoon of Cinderella, and he greatly admires women who are both strong and compassionate. Sam brings together all of these ingredients in this story of a princess who becomes a wise and inspired queen with a personal mission to achieve happiness and prosperity for all of her people. Sam says, "In describing her means to achieve her glorious dream I have presented numerous viewpoints of moral and political philosophy with which readers may agree or disagree. If these stimulate vigorous discussion and debate, pro and con, this book will have achieved a useful place in the world of literature.”

The Legend of Queen Agatha

Authored by Sam Cunningham
Edition: 2

The Legend of Queen Agatha will carry you away to the magical land of Xana, where Queen Julia rules as a typical medieval aristocrat while her teenage daughter, Princess Agatha, champions the commoners.

When the evil sorcerer Magi kills the queen and ravages her land and her people, Agatha is protected by her fairy godmother, who informs her that her Prince Charming will come, but he will not identify himself. It's up to the princess to find him and make love to him (just kissing is not enough) - and only him - if Magi is to be vanquished and the Bad Times dispelled.

Love is made, and the fairy tale continues. But the typical Cinderella story ends when Agatha insists on stepping into the lead rather than becoming irrelevant, as is so often the fate of fairy tale princesses. Queen Agatha is determined to fulfill her destiny of inspiring the good people of Xana to rebuild their ruined land into the greatest prosperity the world has ever known. Everyone should prosper from the fruits of their own labor, with no one left out. To achieve her vision Queen Agatha must carry out bold, radical actions. According to some versions of the legend, clothing is optional.

It's up to you to decide which version you want to embrace in this provocative and controversial allegory.
