Ransom’s first Novel: The God Patent
After phenomenal ebook success in the Scribd.com store, boutique publisher Numina Press, LLC, of San Rafael CA made an offer for publishing rights. 15 months in Amazon’s Top 50: “Literature & Fiction > Religious & Inspirational > Science Fiction & Fantasy” A novel that has spent 17 months in Amazon’s Kindle Top 10: “Science> Physics > Quantum Theory”
From Numina Press, December 2009
Sex, drugs, and quantum physics collide with artificial intelligence, faith, and free will in this perspective-altering story.
Caught between science and religion in a battle over the origin of the universe and the existence of the soul, Ryan McNear fights to rebuild his life with the help of a death- obsessed adolescent skate-rat, a beautiful physics professor, and a conniving landlord/attorney.
"...the first debut novel to emerge from the new paradigm of online publishing. What distinguishes this classic battle between faith and free will is its unusually deft infusion of legitimate but accessible science... An ambitious first novel that uses Stephens' experience as a particle physicist, director of patents, public speaker and single father in a narrative that sings of the heart and the scientific method as two parts of the same song." -San Francisco Chronicle
