“What’s Your New Book About?”

I haven’t said a whole lot yet about my new book, THE GENIUS PLAGUE, which is coming out on October 3. My publisher’s marketing department asked me to list the major topics or themes that this book covers, so they know how to market it. This is what I told them. THE GENIUS PLAGUE is about:
– A pandemic that sweeps from country to country and into the US
– Alzheimer’s and issues of failing memory and elder care
– Medical experimentation and ethics
– Cryptography and code breaking
– The US intelligence community, particularly the NSA
– War and military technology, including computer technology
– Threat of nuclear disaster
– Linguistics, particularly the unique language traits found in isolated South American indigenous tribes

David is a science fiction and fantasy author, which gives him the freedom to explore far beyond the limits of real life and the everyday. His books explores themes that skirt the edges of science and religion, such as human origins, the nature of truth, the certainty of death, and the nature of the soul. He does all his writing at home, where he lives with his wife and seven children. It’s a lively and clamorous place, full of fun, love, and chaos. His latest novel is SUPERPOSITION, a quantum physics murder mystery with the same mind-bending, breathless action as films like INCEPTION and MINORITY REPORT. His other works include the Philip K. Dick Award-winning novel TERMINAL MIND, the historical fantasy QUINTESSENCE (Tor, 2013) and its sequel, QUINTESSENCE SKY.
