Book Tour: Proliferation by Erik A. Otto

Population centers have been leveled and society has regressed to a pre-industrialized state. The advanced city of Haplopol rises from the ashes, enabling the rebirth of more such cities, each one subtly different, the result of an experiment in finding the best machine-governed utopia. Sovereign forces mobilize to exploit their power, and others, to contain them. At the heart of this is an unlikely pair; a dejected anthropologist whose life’s work has finally become useful, and a snarky pirate forced to serve a monastic cult. To survive, they must not only navigate escalating conflict, but also understand the implications of the rising machine cities for all of humanity.

PROLIFERATION is a standalone novel taking place in the same world as DETONATION (Named to Kirkus Reviews Best Books of 2018).  DETONATION is not required pre-reading.
