Enter the Future

Science fiction is about thinking big. We explore the nature of the universe, humanity, and reality by extrapolating our experiences into possibilities. We imagine what we could be, and thus learn who we really are. We contemplate the edges of what is known, and thus stretch our minds to reach beyond. This is the future. Get ready to have your mind blown.

THREE LAWS LETHAL

The place, New York City; the time, the very near future. The streets of Gotham are swarming with self-driving cars, and the competition between two entrepreneurs for this cutthroat futuristic business grows increasingly fierce. But when the escalating technological warfare produces superintelligent AI computers that use data to decide who should live and die, the results are explosive...and deadly. It is left to young Naomi Sumner, inventor of the virtual world in which the AIs train, to recognize that the supercomputers are developing goals of their own—goals for which they are willing to kill. But can she stop these inhuman machines before it is too late? More importantly, will she stop them? Three Laws Lethal takes the reader on a wild ride in a world that is still imaginary...for now...

THE GENIUS PLAGUE

Winner of the John W. Campbell Award.

What if the pandemic you thought would kill you made you more intelligent instead? In the Amazon jungle, a disease is spreading. To those who survive, it grants enhanced communication, memory, and pattern recognition. But the miracle may be the sinister survival mechanism of a fungal organism, manipulating the infected into serving it. Is the human race the master in this symbiotic relationship, or are we becoming the pawns of a subtly dominating and utterly alien intelligence?

SUPERPOSITION

Jacob Kelley's life is turned upside down when an old friend pays him a visit, waving a gun and babbling about an alien quantum intelligence. The mystery deepens when the friend is found dead in an underground bunker, apparently murdered before his visit to Jacob. As the details of the crime come to light, the weave of reality becomes ever more tangled by a miraculous new technology and a quantum creature unconstrained by the normal limits of space and matter. Jacob must find the murderer before the creature destroys his family and everything he loves.

SUPERSYMMETRY

Ryan Oronzi is a paranoid, neurotic, and brilliant physicist who has developed a quantum military technology that could make soldiers nearly invincible in the field. The technology, however, gives power to the quantum creature from SUPERPOSITION, which makes Dr. Oronzi its unwilling pawn and begins attacking those responsible for defeating it fifteen years earlier, including the two versions of Alessandra Kelley who are still living as separate people. The two young women must fight the creature, despite the fact that defeating it may mean resolving once again into a single person.

QUINTESSENCE

Imagine an Age of Exploration full of alchemy, human dissection, sea monsters, betrayal, torture, religious controversy, and magic. In Europe, the magic is thin, but at the edge of the world, where the stars reach down close to the Earth, wonders abound. This drives the bravest explorers to the alluring Western Ocean. Christopher Sinclair is an alchemist who cares only about one thing: quintessence, a substance he believes will grant magical powers and immortality. And he has a ship.

TERMINAL MIND

Winner of the Philip K. Dick Award.

The city-state of Philadelphia is ripe for revolution. Mark McGovern lives in a world of expensive parties and frivolous biological mods, a sharp contrast to the underworld of his friend, Darin Kinsley. When the two accidentally release a sophisticated virus called a 'slicer' into the net, Mark must try to stem the tide of casualties before the charged political situation explodes. But the slicer is more than a virus. It's uploaded mind of a child, trapped and manipulated into doing its master's bidding. Will Mark be able to stop it without destroying the innocent child inside?
