My new novel, Runtime Zero, is now available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle ebook formats. The first installment of a neo-cyberpunk series called the Dark Math Chronicles, it’s been hailed by noted author Alan Kaufman as “sandpaper prose to scrape the cheap paint off your mind,” and described as “spontaneous bebop prosody for the 21st Century,” by Albuquerque Journal editor Bruce Daniels. It’s a mind-bending psy-fi adventure for an increasingly digitized world.
The book traces the journey of a gifted young artist named Will Powers from his drug-fueled downfall in the streets of Manhattan to a future rebirth in a virtual paradise called SubVersa—a world where everything is possible and nothing is forbidden; where Chrome, his digital surrogate, finally lives out his maker’s dream of becoming a master artist and in the process becomes a master programmer—a Code Warrior.
But there’s little time to bask in hard-won glory. Back on planet Earth, a powerful virus called Dark Math has been embedded in the chain of human DNA by a band of bio-hackers, threatening to snuff out human consciousness itself. A cosmic rescue mission gets underway as Chrome, his muse and lover Juliette and their fellow Code Warriors begin to travel back in time to guide their makers on a harrowing journey to SubVersa, where they will finally be forged into a new kind of triune being and begin streaming the new infinity. Unfortunately, the price of admission will be almost more than any human can endure.
