A TV feature introduced Eric Bihl, author of the concept of equilbrism, to Dirk C. Fleck. Back in 1993, Fleck had already published "GO! Die Ökodiktatur" (GO! The Eco Dictatorshop). In that novel the world stands at the brink of destruction until a dictatorship comes into power to avoid the impending collapse: the people are forced to accept ecological change. Whoever violates its laws can expect draconian punishments. Nature takes precedence over humans. In 1994, Fleck's work won him the German Science-Fiction Award, awarded yearly by the Science-Fiction Club Deutschland.
In 2009, Fleck once again won the German Science-Fiction Award, this time with the first equilibrism novel "Das Tahiti-Projekt" (The Tahiti Project). His courage in going against the literary trend, by not sketching a dark end-times scenario but rather showing a perspective towards a future worth living for, was rewarded.
March 2011 saw the release of the much-regarded sequel "MAEVA!".Thanks to Dirk C. Fleck, the vision of equilibrism has become more than just a distant dream for a lot of people. Now it is time to let actions follow.
