About the Author

Claire McCague is a writer, scientist, and folk musician who fabricates nanostructured materials by day and spins words into scripts and books as the stars rise. She lives and doesn’t sleep much in British Columbia.

Claire McCague has spent time playing with focused electron beams, femtosecond laser beams, neutron beams and plain, old x-rays. She has a doctorate in chemistry, achieved explicitly to support her arts habits, and spends her days trying to save the world through development of nanostructured materials for sustainable energy conversion systems. Claire performs regularly with the Sybaritic String Band and her plays have been featured in festivals across Canada.

The funny, absurdist plot works. Most characters have their own voice and show they care about each other. Government actors are sometimes foolish but not stupid. They're there to provide conflict and push the action forward. I usually dislike stories broken into a series of books, but I'm hoping the sequel comes soon and holds together as well as this one. Like Pratchett, the author knows a silly premise can make for a Google story.

Had me hooked immediately. Realism and a cite ent. A book hard to put down

Once you get past the strangely believable premise, the plot is hysterical and I found the whole book fun. Would like to read more by this author.
