The Society On Da Run (mostly abbreviated as TSODR) is a series of popular Science Fiction chapbooks by happy-go-lucky American writer L'Poni Baldwin, whom also wrote La Cicala di Italia.The stories and poems take place in a world inhabited by insectoid aliens, hybrid owls, alien faeries, android vampires, an empire of Space Dragons called Draconizica, and other supernatural anomalies. The chapbooks also includes their fair share of Mind Screw and complex plotlines.A lot of stories are about the adventures of the seventeen eligible crown princes of the Antonin/Draconizica Empre. A great deal of stories cannot be unread. They stay in your subconscious for a very long time.As for its title, this isn't a series about a hip hop society on da run. Its not about magical boys, either.
Tropes in The Society On Da Run include:
Cicadian Rhythm — Cicadas are a very common theme in the book and they are worshipped by nearly every alien. Cicadas are also a gods that take human form and shift back whenever they like.
Our Dragons Are Different — The dragons in TSODR are from another planet with their own empire. They arrived on Earth in Pre Cambrian times in their own spaceships and have taken other planets. Interestingly enough, they have bipedal soldiers, human-dragon shifters, their own weapons (like the Big Dragon Rocket Launcher or the atom-collapser handgun, Hol) they have eight languages, sub-breeds/species, and dragon gods. More interesting is the fact that their "God" lays the eggs without help from a female.
