Nick Sagan Gives Advance Praise for “MultiReal”

This is fabulous, fabulous news, and I’m going to share it with you all first because I love you so much.

Nick Sagan, author of Idlewild, Edenborn, and Everfree, screenwriter for Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager, and former child ambassador to the universe on the Voyager Golden Record, has read and blurbed my novels Infoquake and MultiReal. Here’s what the esteemed Mr. Sagan has to say:

David Louis Edelman’s vision of the future is so alive and full of energy the pages are practically buzzing. Wonderfully intricate with smart, satisfying complexity, Infoquake and its sequel MultiReal serve up a world where mindbending technologies promise a freedom nearly as endless as the Machiavellian ambitions of those who would control them.

Blurbs don’t get much more sophisticated (and laudatory) than that. Together with the existing blurbs from Robert J. Sawyer and Peter Watts, the front matter for MultiReal is going to look pretty nice indeed.

I first met Nick almost exactly twelve months ago, at least year’s Penguicon (you know, the one before open source breast fondling). We spent an afternoon dishing and drinking, and then drinking, and then drinking some more. After that, I think we did some drinking. By the time evening stumbled blearily around, we had talked so much that I think I was ready to take a bullet for the guy.

My deepest thanks to Nick Sagan for this. Now y’all go out there and buy some of his books, y’hear?

    Most excellent news, David. And one Hell of a blurb, I must say! Well done.
