"Gerald Weinberg loves to tell a good story, and the proof is his fast-paced new science fiction thriller THE AREMAC PROJECT. From its first provocative premise to its explosive ending, THE AREMAC PROJECT is a novel to read and remember. Not only does it have memorable characters and an intriguing plot, it also has warmth and humanity leavened with humor.
"It takes chutzpah to write straight to the heart of America's sorrow and anxiety over Islamic terrorist attacks within the United States. Weinberg handles this loaded topic with grace as he tells his story of researchers racing to recover accurate images from the human memory. His scientist and secret agent heroes are people you'd want to know, and his prime villain is an academic plodder that far too many of us have already met.
"Weinberg doesn't stoop to cardboard villains or cutout heroes. Each character in THE AREMAC PROJECT, of whatever ethnic origin or faith, is fully human. If we all lived with the compassion and wisdom Weinberg brings to his fiction, this would be a better world.
"I had only one problem with THE AREMAC PROJECT. Its exuberant tour of Chicago's superb ethnic cuisine -- kosher-style, Polish, Italian, Chinese -- left my mouth watering every time! Bring on the Mongolian beef and latkes and zuppa, but especially let's have more fine stories from Gerald Weinberg." --Susan Mayse, author of Awen, EWU Press.
