I’m thrilled to announce the sale of THE DOOMSDAY CASCADE, a new high-tech thriller with my frequent coauthor Doug Beason, which deals with the growing international crisis of nuclear waste storage. Bob Gleason, editor at Tor/Forge Books acquired the book via John Silbersack at Trident Media Group. Film and TV rights are being shopped by Eric Williams of Zero Gravity Management.
THE DOOMSDAY CASCADE is a gritty survival story of people trapped inside a high-security nuclear waste storage facility deep inside a mountain, trying to escape as security systems break down, possibly leading to a nuclear disaster.
The novel is meticulously researched and extremely plausible. Both Doug and Ihave direct first-hand experience with government bureaucracy, the military, and the nuclear industry. Recent headlines such as the collapse of a nuclear storage tunnel in Hanford, WA, and numerous nuclear-industry mishaps make the novel’s scenario frighteningly realistic.
If you need to catch up in the meantime, check out some of the other high-tech thrillers Doug and I have published, including the Nebula-nominated ASSEMBLERS OF INFINITY.
