Editorial Reviews

Review

''Fans of classic Heinlein-esque science fiction will enjoy The Devereaux Dilemma by Steve McEllistrem. The Devereaux Dilemma is full of complex plot twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. McEllistrem writes gripping, action-packed scenes with eye-popping tech and well-imagined future combat.'' - Lyda Morehouse, Philip K. Dick Award-winning author of Archangel Protocol and Resurrection

''With so many science fiction visions of tomorrow out there, it's hard to come across new stories that are fresh and vital. The Devereaux Dilemma captures and delivers a well-conceived world of complex human characters and believable technologies -- all set against a backdrop of thrilling political intrigue. Steve McEllistrem has created a searingly vivid portrayal of a very possible future.''-Jeffrey Morris, FutureDude and author of Venus: Daedalus One

''The Devereaux Dilemma continually hints at questions environmental ethicists have been asking for decades: If we know that life in all forms is connected, if we know that evolution continues and sometimes occurs more rapidly than Darwin predicted, doesn't it make sense that our most advanced future rests in moving away from genetic tampering for simple corporate-military gain and toward, instead, what Aldo Leopold hoped would be our social-ecological evolution?
Steve McEllistrem, like many in his genre, shows us the best and the worst based on current scientific and political trends. Will human evolution and our relationship with Earth proceed with selfish, power-enhancing mutations, or will we let it proceed on a more natural course? Nature, after all, is capable of succeeding our human built environments much like the trees in McEllistrem's abandoned subdivision grow through deserted homes stretching walls and lifting windows an image that burns in the mind as a symbol of our species' terrible transparency.
Thankfully, the organic, less controlled world lives on. I only hope the Escala don't leave for Mars.'' --- Maryann Lesert, author of Base Ten (Women Writing Science Project)
