About the Book

Rule the Chaos, rule the Universe

The already controversial Dr. Darian Leigh has outdone himself this time with a magnanimous gift to humanity: a device that can create whole new universes and alter the laws of physics. The theory alone sets the worlds of science, religion, and politics ablaze. Now, if only he could get it working. Little does he know, it already does. Lines between good and evil get blurry when a misguided lab associate and the scheming leader of an influential church join forces to harness the power for the glory of God. What—or who—are they willing to sacrifice to possess the machine? Mired in secrets, betrayal, good intentions, and murder, the struggle to control it will rage for eons.

About the Author

Canadian author Paul Anlee writes provocative, epic sci-fi in the style of Asimov, Heinlein, Asher, and Reynolds, stories that challenge our assumptions and stretch our imagination. Literary, fact-based, and fast-paced, the Deplosion series explores themes in philosophy, politics, religion, economics, AI, VR, nanotech, synbio, quantum reality, and beyond.

“When I was young, a teacher asked our class to write about what we wanted to be when we grew up. My story was entitled “Me, The Everything!” I’ve been fortunate to come close to fulfilling that dream in my life, at least intellectually. Computer programming, molecular biology, nanotechnology, systems biology, synthetic biology, business consulting, and photocopy repair, I’ve worked in many fields. I’ve spent way too much of my life in school, eventually earning degrees in computing science (BSc) and in molecular biology and genetics (PhD). I’ve even had the chance to work with some of the best researchers in the world at The National Institute for Nanotechnology in Edmonton, Canada.

“After decades of reading almost nothing but high-tech science fiction, I decided to take a shot at writing some. I aim for stories that are true to the best available science while pushing my imagination far beyond the edge of what we know today. I love biology, particle physics, cosmology, artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology, politics, and economics. My philosophy is empirical physicalism and I blog regularly about the science and the ideas found in my novels. I believe fiction should educate and stimulate, as much as it entertains.”   Paul and his wife currently live in Cuenca, Ecuador where they study Spanish and Chen-style Tai Chi, when not working on exciting and provocative new stories.

Doctor Sharon Leigh has it all literally. A career as one of the smartest sceintist in the world. But when a experiment leaves her an incinerator for her undeveloped son, the world’s smartest child is born. With events just starting to take place, the world is about to experience events no one has seen before on earth.

Along with a war, that has building with the true god Alum, “the reality thief,” is story that is a bit confusing if you can’t read book two in the disposition series. “The Reality Thief,” is a story that can truly be enjoyed for all mature ages. I can say, I really enjoyed the book and can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

The ending will have you feeling like, “Ha. Thanks what you get.” No spoilers here though.
