Overview

Set in a near-future, post-ecological and post-economic collapse, Revolution World chronicles the romance between rogue genetic engineer Clio Somata, and martial-artist computer-programmer Seth Boucher. Sadly, the road of love is never easy... in this case, an overreaching US military establishment and an evil multi-national bioengineering firm has decided that they want what Clio and her family has — cutting edge bio-technology. The conflict between the Somata clan and the US government ends up being the catalyst that drives a bunch of libertarian Texan gamers to declare a revolt against the oppressive US government, kicking off a new Texas Revolution!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Stauber's near-future debut describes the romance of Seth Boucher and Clio Somata against the backdrop of a burgeoning revolution against a vastly overreaching U.S. government. Seth is affiliated with Omerta, a security group from the Charlotte Islands; Clio's family runs Floracopia, a gene-splicing laboratory in Ambrosia Springs, Tex. The U.S. Army wants to know what Omerta is hiding, and Floracopia has a problem with corporate espionage. When the companies' enemies connect, the action leads to a showdown between the citizens of Texas and the overbearing government agents. Seth, Clio, and their allies are well-realized characters, but their enemies are more melodramatic in nature, and the novel suffers from some inconsistencies. Nonetheless, libertarians will enjoy this story of individuals fighting for their rights against the evil Feds. (Mar.)
