Earth is dead.
Five years later, the remnants of humanity travel through the stars inside Forever, a living, ever-evolving, self-contained generation ship. When Eddy Tremaine and Andy Hammond find a hidden world-within-a-world under the mountains, the discovery triggers a chain of events that could fundamentally alter or extinguish life as they know it, culminate in the takeover of the world mind, and end free will for humankind.
Control the AI, control the people.
Eddy, Andy, and a handful of other unlikely heroes — people of every race and identity, and some who aren’t even human — must find the courage and ingenuity to stand against the rising tide.
Otherwise they might be living through the end days of human history.
J. Scott Coatsworth lives with his husband Mark in a little yellow bungalow in East Sacramento. Ushered into fantasy and sci-fi at the tender age of nine by his mother, he devoured her library of Asimovs, Clarkes, and McCaffreys. But as he grew up, he wondered where the gay people were in speculative fiction. He decided if there weren't queer characters in his favorite genres, he would write them himself. He and Mark also run Queer Sci Fi, QueeRomance Ink, and Other Worlds Ink, sites that bring LGBTIQA communities together to celebrate fiction that reflects queer life and love. He won the Rainbow Award as one of the best new gay authors of 2017.
