If the First Plague Apocalypse Doesn't Kill Them All, Try Another.

The most brilliant mind in a thousand years has been tortured and twisted by human cruelty. His solution:

Burn the world down and start from scratch.

Almost no one can stop him. A single obstacle stands in his way.

He must destroy the BrainTrust and its medical researcher extraordinaire, Dr. Dash.

With millions dying, nuclear war in the offing, and the BrainTrust under siege, the fight for the very soul of humanity hinges on a last desperate question:

Who remains to Defy the Darkness?

Nominated for the 2020 Prometheus Award.

This is a long book—450 pages!

If you like Michael Crichton, or Robert Heinlein, or even the TV show “The Last Ship”, welcome to the BrainTrust.

NOTE: While this saga takes place in the BrainTrust universe with some returning characters, it picks up over a year after the other books and does stand alone. No prior experience necessary.

About Marc Stiegler
In the age of the dinosaurs, which is to say, in the previous century during the 80s and 90s, I was a science fiction author. During that brief and happy interlude, among other things I wrote Valentina which became a finalist for the Hugo Award, David's Sling which became a finalist for the Prometheus Award, and The Gentle Seduction which was considered by some founders of the field of nanotech to be the best story ever written about the consequences of their work.

Much of that writing was done during interludes between working at and managing various Silicon Valley startup and software companies. Then disaster struck: I got a normal job as a research scientist. I spent all my words writing tech reports and academic journal articles. No strength remained at the end of the day for sf.

But that is all in the past. Now, a new era of radicalized politics is upon us, an era that needs a new kind of author: one who can, with a light and hopefully humorous touch, explore through near-future sf the consequences of these competing versions of America. In this fire was forged my latest work, the BrainTrust series. At the time of this writing, each of the first four books of the series has been nominated for the Prometheus Award in the year of its publication, and book five is about to launch. Please enjoy.
