About this item
"What do you call a man who stands the world on its head, overnight and without permission? Megalomaniac? Infidel? Messiah? His goal was to advance a moral vision. His motive was revenge. But Philip Machen didn't talk about changing the world until he'd already done it. By then it was too late. Curse him, worship him, or ignore him, the rest of us had to figure it out for ourselves. Before the vigilantes came for us." - Everett Aboud
"Ed Miracle's Maker Messiah has all the great elements of science fiction: a visionary social quandary, genuinely flawed characters trying to negotiate their way through a totally unexpected new 'normal, ' and veiled subversive commentary on how authority responds to change. What if a solution to society's biggest problem appeared out of nowhere? How would the rich, poor, and middle adapt? Would the economy welcome it? Could government leaders guide their countries into a better future? Would corporations find a way to embrace the solution? The coolest thing about Miracle's new book is that when you look at those questions, you kind of know the answers, and it ain't pretty. But you'll keep reading because one question dwarfs the others: what happens next?"
