Mind Over Ship

 

The sequel to Marusek’s stunning debut novel, Counting Heads, which Publishers Weekly called “ferociously smart, simultaneously horrific and funny.”

 


 

The year is 2135, and the international program to seed the galaxy with human colonies has stalled as greedy, immoral powerbrokers park their starships in Earth’s orbit and begin to convert them into space condos. Ellen Starke’s head, rescued from the fiery crash that killed her mother, struggles to regrow a new body in time to restore her dead mother’s financial empire. And Pre-Singularity AIs conspire to join the human race just as human clones, such as Mary Skarland and her sisters, want nothing more than to leave it.

INSPIRED BY ALASKA

David Marusek wheeling books into snow cave

Marusek moved to Alaska in the 1970s with the view of establishing himself somewhere likely to be spared the nuclear Armageddon that he was sure was imminent. Somewhere he could live a self-reliant subsistence lifestyle. Three decades later, he lives in Fairbanks, just up the road from the missile silos of the neocons’ Star Wars initiative. In other words, at ground zero.


Some have theorized this has more than a little to do with the subject matters and characters he offers up on the page.

The Confessional

We asked & our authors answered…


Well, Marusek hasn’t yet. Soon, he says. In the meantime, we discovered how he likes his readers from an old interview:

intelligent, curious, capable and willing to entertain absurd notions of reality, optimistic, not too prissy, not on anabolic steroids, loves wordplay, appreciates ironic humor
