I’m super-happy to be able to say that I’m launching my science fiction book, No Other Gods, within the next 10 days.
I think you’re going to love it.
If you want to be notified when it launches, please just add your name on this page — I’ll send an email to you when it is live and available. I have learned so much from people who have given me early feedback, and the book is way better for people who have already signed up there and read early “beta” versions.
Here’s a quick synopsis of the book:
Geno exists only to fight and to die. But he doesn’t die, and as he fights, he remembers. And as he remembers, Geno becomes more and more who he really is.
From ancient Sumer to earth’s distant future, Geno battles with sword and laser, arrow and particle beam, seeking only to obey the will of the gods. At least at first.
“Thou shalt have no other God than me,” the ancient commandment says. But slowly Geno learns that any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic … and that those who claim to be gods, who require his obedience and worship, may be all too human themselves.
Human enough to desire the only woman in his life, Livia. Human enough to envy, and to kill what they no longer require.
And here’s a few words from people who have already read it:
“John is an amazing new talent to watch out for!”
– Matthew Mather, author of Atopia Chronicles and CyberStorm, just picked up by 20th Century Fox
“Very impressive writing! It pulled me into the story right away. I really like the style of writing; articulate, engaging and constantly makes you want to read more. It was actually hard for me to stop but I have a very early start tomorrow.”
– Andi Gutmans, creator of the PHP programming language
“An Asimov tone with a bit of a Battle Royale feel and a Game of Thrones twist!”
– Simon Dawlat, CEO of AppGratis
“John Koetsier delights with his prose — few writers are as much a joy to read. In all of his octaves, Koetsier haunts you: In his whimsical or light moments, his words levitate off the page. In his dramatic turns, his pace and punctuation push you over. You won’t stop!”
– Matt Marshall, editor of VentureBeat
“Blends myth and technology in the story of a futuristic warrior serving the gods. John Koetsier has created a scifi page-turner with enough historical detail to ground it.”
– Meg Simpson, game designer
“Prepare to be swept away into a fascinating world where all is not what it seems – this is one amazing journey you’ll never forget.”
– Eunice Schaap, editor
“Battle descriptions are awesome and the action was pure adrenaline injected into my brain!”
