The breathtaking debut from acclaimed short story writer Derek Künsken.


Belisarius is a Homo quantus, engineered with impossible insight. But his gift is also a curse—an uncontrollable, even suicidal drive to know, to understand. Genetically flawed, he leaves his people to find a different life, and ends up becoming
the galaxy’s greatest con man and thief. 

But the jobs are getting too easy and his extraordinary brain is chafing at the neglect. When a client offers him untold wealth to move a squadron of secret warships across an enemy wormhole, Belisarius jumps at it. Now he must embrace his true nature to pull off the job, alongside a crew of extraordinary men and women.

If he succeeds, he could trigger an interstellar war… or the next step in human evolution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Derek Kunsken is the future of Canadian Sci Fi Derek Kunsken draws you into a new world and introduces you to characters and concepts that are fresh, timely, and thought provoking. A must read for the SCI FI fanatic who is looking for something beyond the cliches we have all come to expect. He is clearly a talented writer who loves his craft, researches the science, and pushes the boundaries of the genre. The multi-lingual prose had me laughing out loud and thinking throughout the day. I could not wait to get home from work each night to see what happened next. A brilliant first novel. I cannot wait to see what he writes next.
