Book Summary

Genius, a banned technology, and crisis of conscience.

"a truly unique voice" - Tracy A. Fischer, Readers' Favorite

“...you can’t do better than The Man of Cloud 9.” - Rene Auberjonois, Avid Reader, Actor/Director (Star Trek Deep Space 9's Odo)

Seventy years from now, climate change has damaged the world, and civilization has lost its appetite for radical dreamers and innovation. Niko Rafaelo believes that the key to our future lies in revisiting a banned technology, and binding it with the human microbial cloud (the bacteria that surrounds each person). Cut from the same cloth as his Silicon Valley heroes of history, he is compelled to see his dream realized to its fullest potential, but will it cost him everything?

The Man of Cloud 9 is a character-centric sci-fi story that gives a genuine "Silicon Valley behind the scenes" feel, and shows how a single selfless deed can be the harbinger of your own doom in this world.

Recommended for ages 12 and up.

Whoa! That's exactly what I thought when I finished the new book by author Adam Dreece, The Man of Cloud 9. This excellent offering of science fiction will keep readers obsessively turning the pages from the very beginning all the way through to the very end... As an ardent reader in the genre of science fiction, I feel that it's getting more and more difficult to find a truly unique voice and story. I definitely found both in this book, ... I highly recommend this book to any reader who enjoys science fiction, or any reader looking for a creative and unique new read in general.

About the Author

Adam Dreece kicked off his indie author career with his best-selling steampunk meets fairy tale series, The Yellow Hoods, which struck a chord with kids 9-15 and adults. After four books in the series, the former software architect put out two more young adult books, the post-apocalyptic fantasy book The Wizard Killer – Season One, and then his science fiction novel, The Man of Cloud 9. The first two novels in The Yellow Hoods series, as well as The Wizard Killer, have been finalists for Book of the Year awards from the Independent Author’s Network.

When he’s not working on his next book, Adam can be found giving talks at schools, libraries, associations, as well as comic-con type events like CalgaryExpo and FanExpoCanada on subjects from how to get one’s ideas out and stepping outside of one’s comfort zone, to how to give a successful book signing.

Along the way, Adam has faced many challenges, including working around his Dyslexia (reading and writing disorder), and needing to be ruthless with his time and energy in face of his severe asthma and chronic abdominal scar pain. He’s become an inspiration to some, and a symbol of tenacious hard work to others.

He lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with his wife and children. He is an active online mentor at adamdreece.com, and is a busy public speaker, panelist, and author in Canada and the Pacific Northwest.
