No Other Gods - a New Science Fiction Novel by Tech Journalist John Koetsier

“An Asimov tone with a Battle Royale feel and a Game of Thrones twist!”


San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/13/2013 -- 13th Aug 2013, Geno exists only to fight and to die for the pleasure of the gods.

But he doesn’t die, and as he fights, he remembers. And as he remembers, Geno becomes more and more who he really is. Or was.

From ancient Sumer to earth’s distant future, Geno battles with sword and laser, arrow and particle beam, seeking only to obey.

At least at first.

“Thou shalt have no other God than me,” the ancient commandment says. But slowly Geno learns that any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic … and that those who claim to be gods, who require his obedience and worship, may be all too human after all.

Human enough to envy. Human enough to desire the only woman in his life.

And human enough to kill what they no longer require.
