Overview

An ex-convict finds himself mixed up in a motorcycle gang’s plan to heist a hyperspatial supercomputer.

Just released from six years in prison and unsure how to meet basic needs, Harry finds a kindred spirit in Roberta, in thrall to a depraved motorcycle gang. The two decide to infiltrate Harry into the gang so that he can eventually free her from it. But Alexander, the passive-aggressive leader of the Cerberean Knights, leads them into a major crime this evening as he seeks to pay back favors from the corrupt city council of One-West. As the motorcycle attack on the Dataflux computer building turns terrifying and surreal, Harry and Roberta find themselves outgunned by another biker gang belonging to the mysterious billionaire Richard Mullein, who intervenes to protect the top secret navigational equipment for his Cathedral Spaceship.

Meet the Author

Michael D. Smith was raised in the Northeast, then the Chicago area, finally moving to Texas to attend Rice University, where he began developing as a writer and visual artist. In addition to exhibiting and selling paintings and drawings, Smith has completed fifteen novels. His writing in both literary and science fiction genres uses humor to investigate psychological and spiritual themes.

Double Dragon Publishing published the first novel in Smith's Jack Commer science fiction series, The Martian Marauders, in January 2012. Book Two, Jack Commer, Supreme Commander, followed in August 2012, and the Book Three, Nonprofit Chronowar, in May 2013. Book Four, Collapse and Delusion, is also scheduled for publication, and all titles are or will be available as eBooks and paperbacks from Barnes and Noble.

Smith’s web site, www.sortmind.com, is named for his 2009 novel Sortmind, which chronicles the Telepathic Database, urban architectural wars, and two sets of aliens with opposing ideas about how to deal with the human race. In his blog, blog.sortmind.com, Smith explores art and writing processes. Both his web sites contain further examples of his writing and visual art.
