Description

Philip K. Dick Award Finalist

Scientist Peter Bernhardt has dedicated his life to nanotechnology, the science of manipulating matter on the atomic scale. As the founder of Biogineers, he is on the cusp of revolutionizing brain therapies with microscopic nanorobots that will make certain degenerative diseases become a thing of the past. But after his research is stolen by an unknown enemy, seventy thousand people die in Las Vegas in one abominable moment. No one is more horrified than Peter, as this catastrophe sets in motion events that will forever change not only his life but also the course of human evolution.

Peter's company is torn from his grasp as the public clamors for his blood. Desperate, he turns to an old friend, who introduces him to the Phoenix Club, a cabal of the most powerful people in the world. To make himself more valuable to his new colleagues, Peter infuses his brain with experimental technology, exponentially upgrading his mental prowess and transforming him irrevocably.

As he's exposed to unimaginable wealth and influence, Peter's sense of reality begins to unravel. Do the club members want to help him, or do they just want to claim his technology? What will they do to him once they have their prize? And while he's already evolved beyond mere humanity, is he advanced enough to take on such formidable enemies and win?

Review quote

"(R)evolution builds momentum to a rollicking chase through hope and terror, fast-looming biotech, and a tasty-paranoid look at who 'actually runs' the USA." -David Brin, author of The Postman and The Transparent Society

"(R)evolution is a superhumanly researched hybrid of sci-fi, techno-thriller, epic myth of the hero's journey with vivid and memorable characters. And its e-book presentation is perfect for the times and the material. Truly an achievement." -Joe Quirk, bestselling author of The Ultimate Rush, Exult, and It's Not You, It's Biology

"Reading (R)evolution is a thrilling cinematic experience in your head on par with a Bourne novel. You will find yourself rushing to find out how the protagonist survives and thrives, and along the way develop an appreciation for how emerging technologies will soon change our experience of daily life." -Dr. James Hughes, executive director of IEET, former ED of Humanity+, author of Citizen Cyborg, bioethicist, futurist
