Futurist Nicholas Eftimiades has a prediction. In fact, he has a number of them, and they all point to hilarity in his new book “Edward of Planet Earth”.
Few authors established themselves as notable in the science fiction genre. Fewer still in the area of science fiction comedy. But reviews are naming Nicholas Eftimiades as the American version of Douglas Adams, author of famed “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy”.
“With his comedic dystopian future history populated by hapless reluctant heroes and lovesick artificial intelligences, Nick takes a big step toward becoming the American Douglas Adams”
Bill Prady, Co-Creator, The Big Bang Theory TV Show
“Edward of Planet Earth” looks 200 years into the future of today’s most advanced technology. The result is a unique insight into a zany world where the meaning as well as the definition of life is open to interpretation. Everything is fair game as Edward navigates befuddled governments, psychotic software, greedy corporations, overly attentive robots, and romance in a quest to discover the true nature of existence in a society based on science.
Mr. Eftimiades’ 30 year government career include leading planning efforts for future national security space programs and technology development efforts. He is also known worldwide for his book “Chinese Intelligence Operations” which earned him the title of “Enemy of the People” in China’s People’s Daily newspaper.
Nick is a frequent lecturer and public speaker on future technology, societal changes, and national security issues. He has appeared on CBS Evening News with Connie Chung, Dateline NBC, ABC’s Day One, BBC America, National Public Radio, and dozens of other television and radio broadcasts. He has testified before several US Congressional and Presidential Commissions.
“Edward of Planet Earth” was nominated for the prestigious Global E-book Award.
