Well, I would be compelled to suggest my latest book due to be published January 10th 2019. Atoma and the Blockchain Game is the first of a new five book series. It's written for teens and young adults, but it will also make an enjoyable read for anyone who enjoys science fiction and coming of age tales. Book 2 will be out in February 2019.(less)

It seems to…moreCryptocurrencies like Bitcoin along with blockchain technology they are based on are not well understood by the vast majority of people. It seems to me it's the under 35s who show the most interest. Yet, this technology is changing the world in ways most could never imagine even as I type. Because so few know about this technology that is coming at us like a train on a rail track there are many questions we should be asking but not. The how, why, where, who kind of questions, rather than the simple 'what is it?'

I thought, hey, I could write a book about this especially for those who will be forefront in the brave new world of cryptos, blockchain, hashgraph, et al. technologies. Why not make it a series exploring the good and the bad and the brain exploding scenarios that only SF can possibly do justice to? A series for teens and young adults with humor and romance, as well as action and adventure, mystery and suspense. The whole enchilada. A science fiction set in the near future especially (but not only) for teen and YA. (less)

“You know what I mean.” Storm was surprised by the intensity of his friend’s gaze and he laughed. “C’mon, Matt.” “If you get called out by any security, just do what they say. Don’t be a hero.” “Are you trying to fill in for my old man?” Storm asked him.”
Gerard O'Neill, May Day

“Tindale gazed at the rider with a frozen smile. He was doing his level best to hide his contempt for the man. Fassbinder and his team had not given away a single clue. The degree of secrecy that enveloped the mission was incredible. The fact that Naval Command decided to keep him in the dark was simply galling.”
Gerard O'Neill, May Day
