Edward of Planet Earth was recently nominated for the prestigious Global E-book Award. The book is a madcap political and philosophical satire that spoofs modern life, from organized religion to the traffic control system. 200 years in the future Edward Temple, a uniquely ordinary person becomes caught up in a zany world where self-aware super computers are as argumentative, egotistical, demanding, and emotionally needy as the humans they serve. Everything is fair game as Edward navigates befuddled governments, psychotic software, greedy corporations, overly attentive robots, and romance.

He is a frequent lecturer and public speaker on future technology and societal changes, and national security issues. Nick has appeared on CBS Evening News with Connie Chung, Dateline NBC, ABC's Day One, BBC America, National Public Radio, and dozens of other television and radio broadcasts.
