Win a Trilogy of Trilogies

Years ago, when Jay Posey started down the path of his The Legends of the Duskwalker series, he was joined by two mighty allies: Ramez Naam – brilliant technologist and author of the Nexus trilogy – and Wesley Chu – martial arts master and author of the Tao trilogy. Together they embarked upon a quest to produce three books each, all epic in their own way, and all set to take over the world of sci-fi.

On August 4 (USA/Can) / August 6 (UK/R.o.W) the release of Jay’s Dawnbreaker will mark the end of the journey of the Trilogy of Trilogies.

Ramez Naam at Seattle University Book Store

Ramez Naam is a pretty darn intelligent guy. Not only is he a scientist and author (plus, pretty nifty at a Cockney accent) he’s also a great orator.

So we did a little jump for joy when we heard that Ramez had been invited to introduce Apex, the third in the Nexus series, at Seattle University Book Store.

We would aim to tell you what the talk was about but, well, our explanation would pale in comparison to that of the man himself. In fact, without further ado, here is Ramez doing what he does best:
