Review Quotes:

"State Tectonics is a really good story about our near future and how social and news media are increasingly shaping the perceived realities of people and countries. It shows how people of good will can invent the future of democracy, and how that future might further evolve. The entire Centenal Cycle offers a vision which already influences the path of democracy and commerce in the here and now." --Craig Newmark, founder of CraigsList

"Satisfying as a novel, anxiety-inducing as a comment on our society." --Kirkus Starred Review on State Tectonics

PRAISE FOR NULL STATES

"Subtly radical (except where it's openly radical), this book and series continue to offer a kinetically involving narrative that can also make you think about our actual world today." --RT Book Reviews on Null States, Top Pick (4.5 Stars)

"Carefully researched, prescient, thoughtful, and disturbing." --Kirkus Reviews on Null States

"Seriously inspirational for people who are genuinely involved in inventing the future." -- Craig Newmark, founder of CraigsList

"A riveting science fiction thriller that brings the future of democracy to vivid, divisive life... a hell of a good story." --The Chicago Review of Books

"Subtly radical (except where it's openly radical), this book and series continues to offer a kinetically involving narrative that can also make you think about our actual world today." --RT Book Reviews, Top Pick (4.5 Stars)

"Carefully researched, prescient, thoughtful, and disturbing." --Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR INFOMOCRACY

"Kinetic and gripping, the plot hurtles toward an electoral climax that leaps off the page." --NPR
