David Louis Edelman
'Infoquake' mass market paperback cover

Hack the Body, and the Mind Will Follow.

Infoquake, the debut novel by web programmer David Louis Edelman, takes science fiction into alien territory: the corporate boardroom of the far future. It’s a stunning trip through the trenches of a technological war fought with product demos, press releases, and sales pitches. With Infoquake, David Louis Edelman has created a fully detailed world that’s both as imaginative as Dune and as real as today’s Wall Street Journal. Read the book Barnes & Noble Explorations called “the love child of Donald Trump and Vernor Vinge.”

John W. Campbell Memorial Award Nominee for Best Novel 2006
John W. Campbell Award Nominee for Best New Writer 2007

“Slick high-finance melodrama and dizzying technical speculation lift Edelman’s SF debut, the first of a trilogy… Bursting with invention and panache, this novel will hook readers for the story’s next installment.”
Publishers Weekly

“The genre might not be quite the same after this book… Infoquake is a stunning debut novel by a lucid, precise, and talented new voice in the genre…. This may be THE science fiction book of the year.”

“A high-speed, high-spirited tale of capitalist skullduggery.”
Norman Spinrad, Asimov’s
