book: No Other Gods

No Other Gods is launching August 8, 2013


Geno exists only to fight and to die.

But he doesn’t die, and as he fights, he remembers. And as he remembers, Geno becomes more and more who he really is.

“Non-stop action! An eternal champion battles his way across centuries, gradually learning to ask the question: why?”

- bestselling science fiction author David Brin

From ancient Sumer to earth’s distant future, Geno battles with sword and laser, arrow and particle beam, seeking only to obey the will of the gods.

At least at first.

Thou shalt have no other God than me,” the ancient commandment says. But slowly Geno learns that any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic … and that those who claim to be gods, who require his obedience and worship, may be all too human themselves.

Human enough to desire the only woman in his life, Livia. Human enough to envy.

Human enough to kill what they no longer require.
