The Man of Cloud 9 by Adam Dreece
Would you sacrifice everything to change the world?
It’s the end of the 21st century. Society’s attention has been so focused on dealing with climate change that any other innovation is considered wasteful.
Niko Rafael believes the world made a mistake and he is determined to bring his vision for fusing nanobots with the human microbial cloud to life. Possessed by the belief that humanity can reclaim some of the lost technology of the earlier part of the century, as well as the spirit of wonder and real innovation, he relentlessly pushes forward. But going against the grain, changing society, and creating a corporate behemoth has consequences. When the board of directors of his own company push him aside and bring in Harriet Binger as CEO, old hatreds flare and a closely-guarded secret of Niko’s is exposed. As Niko pursues his true goal, he’ll learn that his greatest good will not go unpunished.
