Tal Klein, in conversation with the Hollywood Reporter's Andy Lewis, discusses and signs The Punch Escrow
In conversation with Andy Lewis (Book Editor of The Hollywood Reporter) and Dr. Steven Schowalter (a quantum physicist at NASA).
"I read a lot of books but haven't enjoyed one as much as The Punch Escrow in a long time. Klein creates a plausibly real future that sucks you in. He powers his story with action, twists, and a dash of humor." --Andy Lewis, Book Editor, The Hollywood Reporter
It's the year 2147. Advancements in nanotechnology have enabled us to control aging. We've genetically engineered mosquitoes to feast on carbon fumes instead of blood, ending air pollution. And teleportation has become the ideal mode of transportation, offered exclusively by International Transport--the world's most powerful corporation, in a world controlled by corporations. Joel Byram spends his days training artificial-intelligence engines to act more human and trying to salvage his deteriorating marriage. He's pretty much an everyday twenty-second century guy with everyday problems--until he's accidentally duplicated while teleporting. Now Joel must outsmart the shadowy organization that controls teleportation, outrun the religious sect out to destroy it, and find a way to get back to the woman he loves in a world that now has two of him.
