Puramore - Sci-fi Novel by Steven Wood Collins - Published by Amazon and Barnes & Noble
Retopia Limited publishes the firm's first novel, Puramore. The book is available for online purchase in ebook format through all major ebook online retailers.
Mankind has only two choices after science and technology renders the species obsolete and incapable of survival. One choice compels humanity to submit body and soul to a sinister supernatural civilization – the other choice impels mankind to submit to a bioengineering paradigm. The first choice results in expunction of the singularity of the human soul, while the second leaves it infinitely free.
General Sir George Smythe, Team Alpha, a Nagual sorcerer and their quantum computer battle Wingtip and spirit forces at his command to turn the tide of mankind's survival dilemma decidedly in their favor. They must marshal all the genius and intellectual resources at their disposal to overcome Wingtip's spiritual advantage. Time is of the essence, but they and mankind have very little left. Puramore can be wielded only one last time should they fail. And only a paragon of mankind is fit to wield Puramore to defeat another mortal enemy and lead mankind to apotheosis.
Failure is not an option for George Smythe.
Puramore is unique and compelling as it represents a novelized view of the possible consequences of Ray Kurzweil's singularity predictions. Moreover, the novel responds to Brave New World scenarios in a humorous vein. The approach is designed to entertain the reader whilst setting forth unique concepts about how mankind may evolve. No other novel in the marketplace tackles the potential dilemmas mankind may face when will face when that occurs.
The main audience is the hardcore science fiction reader. Secondarily, adolescents and young adults who read Harry Potter novels would definitely be drawn to buy Puramore and sequels.
I received an A.B. in Economics from the University of California in Berkeley in 1975. Thereafter I worked in the publishing business for ten years. I last worked for Condé Nast Publications' national newsstand sales department before starting a career in the financial services industry, initially as a stock broker for a major Wall Street firm.
During the last seven years of my career, I wrote reports and correspondence for top-level, executive management at Charles Schwab & Company.
Here's what Dr Natasha, a British nuclear physicist and professional manuscript editer for FirstEditing.com, had to say about Puramore:
"I really enjoyed reviewing your manuscript. As an author and a scientist, I could appreciate and enjoy the chosen topic and the beauty of your narrative. I am well aware of how important this work is to you and of the importance of its presentation. We only get one chance to make the first impression!"
"Firstly, I wish to congratulate you on your excellent writing style and use of language. As an editor, I come across manuscripts daily, and I can tell you objectively that your book ranks at the top when it comes to style and language."
As a result of Smashword Publishing’s editorial review, the title gained placement on the ebook distributor’
