Editorial Reviews

staff reviewer
Mr.Allen has found an idea worthy of his talent. The book has that unmistakably correct feel of authenticity. A very readable as well as thoughtful story. Bravo to Mr.Allen for writing this risky book. Read it. Then pass it on to your mundane friends. With any luck, it will drive them crazy.

Meet the Author

Roger MacBride Allen was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut on September 26, 1957. He graduated Boston University in 1979 with a degree in journalism, and published his first novel in 1984. From that time to this, every work of science fiction that he has completed has been published. He has written over twenty novels to date, (three of which were New York Times bestsellers), two extremely obscure technical manuals, and a modest number of short stories. He is also the co-author (with his father, Thomas B. Allen) of Mr. Lincoln’s High-Tech War, published by National Geographic.

In 1994, he married Eleanore Fox, an officer in the U. S. Foreign Service. In March 1995, they moved to Brasilia, Brazil, where Eleanore worked at the embassy. In August, 1997, Eleanore’s next assignment took them back to the United States. Their son, Matthew Thomas Allen, was born November 12, 1998. A posting to Leipzig, Germany, made that the birthplace of their second son, James Maury Allen, born April 27, 2004. In August 2010, the family up and moved again, this time to Mexico City. When in the United States, they live in Takoma Park, Maryland, just north of Washington, D.C.
