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.
