The end–or the beginning– is in sight! This is the official cover of my new SF Thriller, Catalyst.
The year is 2046.
Mutations and MIDS ravage the planet, and the need for body parts and organ transplants escalate. Corbin has created GenOrg, a farm that speed-grows in coffin-like pods thousands of human clones from stolen DNA. One problem: the clones are sentient—their genetic memory has even given them the ability to communicate between themselves.
Ashar, a self-named clone, escapes GenOrg, promising to return to free the others. Running for his life, he is joined by Sara Logan, a geneticist with a guilty secret, and Pietr Ludov, a reporter seeking the ultimate story. They hatch out a plan to bring down Corbin, but it’s not enough for Ashar: he wants the clones free. Struggling with his own genetic identity, Ashar devises his own plan, which will unleash a series of events that will have repercussions for decades.
When I was a kid, watching The Prisoner was my parents’ way of giving me a treat (they didn’t believe in candy, nor in sweets and desserts). I loved that show, with its sci-fi overtones, its Big Brother feel, and its star’s courage and determination.
It’s therefore with great sadness that I learned today that Patrick McGoohan is dead. Although it’s not old, I can’t believe he was 80. Makes me feel old.
TIS THE SEASON! And with books being one of the greatest gift ideas anywhere, anytime, there’s plenty of reason to be jolly.
Books, compared to other forms of entertainment, are relatively inexpensive. They last a long time, and you can enjoy them more than once. You can trade them for other books, or share them with friends. Most important, they take you to places you might never have been before, where you’ll meet fascinating people and enjoy fabulous adventures on this world and others far more economically than a Prius.
