  • (1888PressRelease) October 30, 2023 - LOS ANGELES –The horror of a powerful new technology going terribly wrong drives the zany new science fiction novel to be released Oct. 31.

    Published by Burning Books Press, Final Warning: Return of the Neanderthals (ISBN # 978-0-9911857-8-8) will be available as 284-page paperback priced at $14.95, and a Kindle e-book at $4.95.

    In the novel, a very powerful cell phone signal capable of killing millions of people is rolled out while a lonely female scientist fired by her company battles to expose the truth.

    “As human knowledge increases, the chance of a new technology going terribly wrong increases rapidly too,” observes Final Warning’s author, David Drum.

    In 1900, according to some experts, knowledge was doubling approximately every 100 years. By 1945, knowledge was doubling every 25 years. In the near future, with technological advances, some say knowledge is likely to double as frequently as every 12 hours

    “The speed at which new technology can be developed today is exhilarating but its shadow side is how quickly it can be rolled out, often with minimal or inadequate testing. What is as frightening as a new technology that could wipe out all life on earth, backed by a corporate titan determined to wring all the profit out of it as quickly as possible, no matter what the future cost to human life?” the author asks.

    Final Warning’s eclectic mix of characters includes Neanderthals who return, aliens who visit earth with machines that foretell the future, a character who returns from the dead, and a supernatural wiccan love triangle.

    “We live in an era when new technologies are being developed so rapidly they have the potential to overwhelm our civilization almost before we realize they’re here,” Drum says. “At its heart, Final Warning: Return of the Neanderthals is a cautionary tale against the very real dangers of technological over-reach.”
