Overview

Imagine waking up 14 centuries from now, only to discover that everything you know about the universe is wrong and you are nothing but a despised relic from the long-dead past. Rome's Revolution is a three-part interstellar adventure featuring a man from the 21st century and a woman from the 35th century who band together to fight forces dedicated to the extinction of mankind. Cinematic in scope, Rome's Revolution offers romance, comedy, heart-pounding thrills, suspense, "legal" time travel, and meticulously researched hard science. It is a love story and a culture clash. Rome's Revolution has everything you love about hard science fiction: robots, aliens, computers, genetic manipulation, spaceships that travel faster than light and some that travel a lot slower.

Now available in a single, epic-length novel, Rome's Revolution chronicles the adventures of Rei Bierak, a twenty-something male from the very near future. Rei, along with 542 other humans, is frozen and launched in the Ark II toward the stars with the hope of establishing a colony on a habitable world in the Tau Ceti system. During Rei's long trip, modern civilization has collapsed, and society has reformed into a decidedly different model. The 24-chromosome mind-connected humans of the future called the Vuduri are efficient, indifferent, and emotionally deficient. The Vuduri have conquered faster-than-light travel and have established an outpost in the Pi3 Orionis system (aka Tabit) to study why certain stars are disappearing. Awakening 1388 years in the future, Rei meets Rome, a beautiful half-breed Vuduri woman, who is eventually ostracized for consorting with him. They must battle creatures larger than the Sun, all-consuming nearly invisible nanites, an imperious Overmind who rules over the Vuduri with an iron fist and MASAL, an evil AI dedicated to engineering the humanity out of mankind.

If you are looking for some science in your science fiction, this book is for you.

(One other note: this story is true, it just hasn't happened yet.)
