Larry Ketchersid's Publications

  • Dusk Before the Dawn

    • Infinity Publishing
    • April 21, 2006
    Authors: Larry Ketchersid

    Dusk Before the Dawn was named a Finalist in the 2006 Book of the Year Awards from ForeWord Magazine.

    An American educated Mayan sits atop a Temple in Tikal National Park, waiting. A father helplessly watches his family fall into some kind of sleep, or trance. Then he too succumbs, begging a stranger to save them. A PhD scientist awakens, remembering only hours ago she was in her nanotechnology lab, trying to work a solution to make incredibly small robots replicate. But she finds that she is now ill, or a prisoner, or both. The world has change irrevocably, in one swift movement, by the actions of a meglo-maniacal genius. Can they undo what he has done? Should they?

    One of the best novels I've come across this year - I liked it so much, I added it to my best first science fiction novels list here on Amazon. A really fine mix of ancient culture, modern-future nanotech, written by a sure hand -- Paul Levinson, author of The Plot to Save Socrates

  • Software by the Kilo

    • JoSara MeDia
    • December 1, 2009
    Authors: Larry Ketchersid

    "Master hacking, topless snorkeling, wine, war, and corporate intrigue spin smoothly in Larry Ketchersid's fast moving, high octane second novel, spanning two continents, two time periods, and all kinds of friendship, business, and love. If you like high-tech action served with cultural savvy and keen human insight, you'll snap up Software by the Kilo." --Paul Levinson, author of The Plot to Save Socrates and New New Media

    "In Software by the Kilo, Larry Ketchersid writes about romance like a romantic, about computers like a geek, about the Mafia like a Don, about war like he's been there. Perhaps, best of all, he writes about ordinary people as though he were one."--Robert Flynn, author of Echoes of Glory and Wanderer Springs
