NEXUS – One of December’s Best Bets in Science Fiction

By

Nexus by Ramez NaamNexus by Ramez Naam is already getting a lot of attention. Kirkus Reviews lists it as One of December’s Best Bets in Science Fiction, and just look at what other folk have been saying:

“Naam displays a Michael Crichton-like ability to explain cutting-edge research via the medium of an airport techno-thriller.”
SFX Magazine 

“His breathtaking expertise and confidence as a writer makes Naam the only serious successor to Michael Crichton working in the future history genre today.”
Scott Harrison, author of Archangel

“Reminds me of Michael Crichton at his best.”
Brenda Cooper, author of The Silver Ship and the Sea and The Creative Fire

There appears to be a pattern emerging! Also…

“Excellent spycraft, kick-ass action scenes, and a chilling look at a future cold war over technology and ideology… a hell of a read.”
Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing

“The action scenes are crisp, the glimpses of future tech and culture are mesmerizing”
Publishers Weekly

“A ‘smart thriller’ in all senses of that phrase. Ramez Naam really does know how to make you turn that page. If you are posthuman or transhuman this is an absolute must-read for you; and even mere mortals will love it.”
Philip Palmer, author of Version 43 and Hell Ship

And if you pre-order a copy of Nexus, you can get an eBook copy of Naam’s HG Wells Award-winning non-fiction debut, More Than Human: Embracing the Promise of Biological Enhancement FREE!
