About Micah R. Sisk

Micah R. Sisk was born at the U.S. Army medical hospital in Landstuhl, West Germany (there was a West Germany at the time) in 1958, and has lived most of his life since in Frederick County, Maryland, U.S.A. After a close encounter with Engineering, Micah received a Bachelor of Science degree in Art from Virginia Tech. He now makes his living as a database analyst at a major U.S. corporation, while in other incarnations he is, or has been, a landscape painter, real estate agent, assistant gallery director, retail sales manager, microfilm quality control tech, musician, composer, and builder of electronic musical instruments.

Micah is married with cat(s) and is often seen puttering around Frederick, Maryland on his bicycle, hanging out at coffee houses reading and writing science fiction tales.

About the Series: The Posthuman Cycle
Earth has been ravished. After centuries of exploitation and mismanagement, the planet’s elite abandon its surface, build sophisticated space habitats and harvest the resources of the solar system for their own use. From these enclaves of the ultra–rich come endless breakthroughs in biology, computer sciences, nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, and genetic engineering: technologies that many of the elite embrace and employ for (sometimes radical) body and mind augmentation: posthumanity.

Meanwhile, Earth’s governments disintegrate, splintering into fiercely competitive and ideologically motivated factions. Unable to share in the bounties of their former ruling classes, these factions are united in only their fear, hatred, and rejection of posthumanity. Violent pogroms ensue, scouring the Earth of any remaining posthuman vestiges, further isolating Earth’s TruHumans from their posthuman cousins. War threatens, until posthumanity develops faster than light travel and explodes into the galaxy, ceding control of the Sol system to its regressive baseline humans, and to their Biosoloist sympathizers in the space–based enclaves.

The posthuman diaspora thus begins.
