Volume 1 of the Jump 225 Trilogy

Natch is a master of bio/logics, the programming of the human body. He's clawed and scraped his way to the top of the bio/logics market using little more than his wits. Now his sudden notoriety has brought him to the attention of Margaret Surina, the owner of a mysterious new technology called MultiReal. Only by enlisting Natch's devious mind can Margaret keep MultiReal out of the hands of High Executive Len Borda and his ruthless armies. To fend off the intricate net of enemies closing in around him, Natch and his apprentices must accomplish the impossible. They must understand this strange new technology, run through the product development cycle, and prepare MultiReal for release to the public—all in three days. Meanwhile, hanging over everything is the spectre of the infoquake, a lethal burst of energy that's disrupting the bio/logic networks and threatening to send the world crashing back into the Dark Ages.

About the Jump 225 Series:
“. . . novels chockfull of ideas . . .”—Orson Scott Card

Infoquake is a stunning debut novel by a lucid, precise, and talented new voice in the genre.”—SSF World

“Edelman has managed to capture the mania and obsession of internet moguls nicely.”—SF Revu

Praise for Infoquake:
“Slick high-finance melodrama and dizzying technical speculation lift Edelman’s SF debut. . . . Bursting with invention and panache, this novel will hook readers for the story’s next installment.” —Publishers Weekly

“INFOQUAKE should appeal to just about any SF reader, but if you like Herbert’s Dune or any of Stross’ work, you should really enjoy this book.” —SF Signal

Praise for MultiReal:
“Edelman brings fresh air to the technological thriller. . . . MultiReal itself is firmly established as one of the most fascinating singularity technologies in years.” —Publishers Weekly

“Once you realize that Natch is less Neo than he is Steve Jobs, you’re in for a swell ride.” —Sci-Fi Weekly

Praise for Geosynchron:
“This smart, idiosyncratic blend of cyberpunk, libertarian entrepreneurship, and social engineering will, I think, stand as a seminal work of 21st century SF.” —Locus

“Takes the series one level higher, beyond mundanity to true sense-of-wonder SF, so it finally plays on the level of the masters of modern SF.” —Fantasy Book Critic
