Finally, a book written that is William Gibson-esque enough to rate a 5-star rating. Cool tech, believable characters, interesting plot line.

A Vonnegut-style tale of the next century

Eric Gabrielsen's "Gideon's Fall" paints a picture of the world 80 or so years from now: a world full of augmented bodies, consolidated countries, a single Catholic church (except for a few lingering Mormon terrorists), a space catapult, and a couple mind-machine mergers.

This is an indie book, typos and all and I bought it with little hope.

Eric is a fine story teller and his writing style is easy and quick. I'm not typically a reader of this sort of material, so I'm not sure I'm a good person to evaluate it since I don't really have a good understanding of the genre. But if you enjoy brave new worlds, intrigue, darkness and some light, then you owe it to yourself to experience Gideon's Fall. Keep on writing Eric!
