The Braintrust Complete Series Omnibus
by Marc Stiegler
A Presidency under siege. A worldwide pandemic, followed by a global economic collapse. Does real life emulate fiction? Or does fiction emulate real life?
All 5 books examine topics ripped from the headlines. How closely will the world follow the BrainTrust script?
Warning: Political satire included in this near-future hard sf techno-thriller.
The President for Life expelled all foreign engineers from Silicon Valley. They moved to the BrainTrust:
A fleet of immense cruise liners jammed with teams seeking the next great breakthrough.
A locus freed of bureaucracy & autocracy, a thorn in the side of every dirtside power.
A home for creativity where no problem is unsolvable, but no crisis is as simple as it seems.
A clean, well-lighted place for ferocious commando assaults & desperate copter combat.
The Frightening Fact: A little too much of it is coming true.
