The Biomass Revolution by Nicholas Smith
The author has bought to life on the pages of this novel a compelling and frightening vision of a dystopian world. A society that has risen out of the ashes of nuclear winter whose leaders rule through fear and misinformation and oppress the freedom of its citizens. The state is monopolising the near endless fuel source known as Biomass, that if shared could bring relief from the agonizing deaths and suffering of the banished masses.
A small band of revolutionaries struggle to bring the government down and to free the citizens. This book has all the ingredients for a great read and does not disappoint. A sumptuous novel of epic proportions that left me wanting seconds. Nicholas Smith has delivered a fresh vision in a well-worn genre.
About the Author by the Author
I'm a debatable fellow from the midwest, born and raised. Humanist, vegetarian, triathlete, public servant - these would be words those who know me would use to describe me. 29 years young I have learned and seen a lot, but none of my experiences can rival what I am capable of creating with on paper; from dystopic futures to alien worlds. My creative interests are wide ranging.
Writing is mostly a hobby for me right now. My day job is with the State of Iowa as a Diaster Project Specialist. When I'm not writing or helping communities recover from disasters I'm more than likely training and racing in triathlons and adventure races across the United States. I hope to complete my first half and full Ironman in Texas and Idaho in 2013.
I completed my undergraduate education at the University of Iowa, earning degress in Political Science and American Indian Studies. Two years later I recieved a Masters Degree in Public Policy/Administration from Drake University.
