“What’s Your New Book About?”

Advertisements

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
