Overview

The Philip K. Dick award-winning SF dystopian novel. Years in the future, the U.S. is a splintered country. The city-state of Philadelphia is ripe for revolution. Mark McGovern, the son of a rich politician, lives in a world of expensive parties and frivolous biological mods, a sharp contrast to the poor underworld of his best friend, Darin Kinsley. When the two accidentally release a sophisticated virus called a 'slicer' into the net, Mark must try to stem the tide of casualties before the charged political situation explodes. But the slicer is more than a virus. To destroy it, Mark must first sort truth from lies, not only for himself, but for the mind of the child who holds his fate.

Editorial Reviews

Book Review
“High-intensity human drama set in a thoroughly imagined and highly plausible future.“
- Book Review, Orson Scott Card’s InterGalactic Medicine Show
Elaine Isaak
“A fast-paced SF-thriller with a very human heart.”
?- Elaine Isaak, author of The Eunuch’s Heir
Judson Roberts
“David Walton’s Terminal Mind is a fast-paced thriller that slices across the landscape of a darkly imagined future.”?
- Judson Roberts, author of The Strongbow Saga
Nancy Fulda
“An enthralling near-future scenario where body styling has become an art form and where computer hacking has progressed in a chillingly believable direction. What I love about David’s fiction is that his characters are firmly grounded in a social context. In Terminal Mind, the family and interpersonal conflicts are just as intriguing as the threat to society, with outcomes that are just as uncertain.”?
- Nancy Fulda, assistant editor of Baen’s Universe
Mike Shultz - Mike Shultz
“If you like distinctive character voices, cool science fiction gizmos, and a dozen plot threads that weave together into a dazzling whole, you need to read Terminal Mind.”?
- Mike Shultz, author of Sword of Memory
