Minnesota author Ronald E. Peterson's debut sci-fi novel, Gardeners of the Universe, officially launched with a party at the Bell Museum in Minneapolis on Sept. 29.
Gardeners of the Universe begins in the not too distant future with the births of three children destined to change the world. Rianne grows up to lead biological revolutions. Dan creates sentient computers and guides the direction of human evolution. Sarah, in an age of information dissonance, becomes the most trusted individual on Earth, and convinces the world that it must change. What sets the three apart from the rest of humanity are genetics and “gifts” that were no accident.
Early reviews for the novel have been very favorable. Kirkus Reviews said, "The author manages to juggle a large ensemble cast while clearly exploring the ramifications of each paradigm shift within the suspenseful narrative..... A fluid, grand-canvas, peripatetic future-history adventure."
San Francisco Book Review said, "If the most praiseworthy goals of science fiction are to both entertain and educate, then Dr. Peterson has achieved both."
The book is available for purchase online via the PTB Books website.
