From the Editor

Welcome to a simultaneously hopeful and terrifying tomorrow in which everyone is flawed, there are no easy answers, and—for its complicated hero, bioengineer Peter Bernhardt—the cost of victory is almost as unimaginable as defeat. A heady thriller with all the makings of a summer blockbuster, PJ Manney’s auspicious debut novel begins with a literally explosive scene: an attack on a Las Vegas media convention. Then, like all legendary action films, it proceeds with a cinematic fervor that continually raises the stakes.

Framed for the attack by the Phoenix Club, a powerful and conspiratorial secret society, Peter embarks on a mission to clear his name. Aided by a motley cast of accomplices with their own suspect histories and motivations, he seeks answers and vengeance in a world that bristles with mystery, conspiracy, and bio-digital technology that we, in the real world, will soon see realized.

A noted and well-connected futurist, PJ knows of what she writes, and she stares down its implications with an unblinking fascination and a blistering pace that belies her status as a first-time novelist. But whereas many authors of techno-thrillers—from Mary Shelley to Michael Crichton—are motivated by an ambivalence about what our evolving science portends, PJ positively revels in it. She asks not “What if?” but “How soon?”—and, ultimately, “What will we become?”

I’m frankly honored to introduce this distinctive new voice in science fiction with one of those very rare books that I desperately wish I could read again for the first time. Thankfully, the author is hard at work on the sequel.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"[An] intriguing and fast-paced debut...With poignancy and sensitivity, Manney constructs an intricate and adventurous plot...Fans of gosh-wow SF will devour this novel all the way to the startling ending." —Publishers Weekly

"(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

About the Author

PJ Manney writes the same way she lives—with an abiding passion for exploring new, exhilarating, and utterly unique experiences. A devotedly positive futurist, she was on the board of directors of Humanity+, an international nonprofit organization that advocates the ethical use of technology to expand human capabilities. PJ has also been active in communications, public relations, and film production. To date, she has written numerous scripts for television pilots, as well as worked on shows such as Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess. She has lived as far afield as New York and New Zealand, and loves delving into the cultural landscape of wherever she finds herself. Whenever she’s not working on her novels, she continues to expound on her perspective of a technology-driven posthumanity while encouraging hopeful visions of the future. She lives with her husband of twenty-five years and their two children.
