“One of the best hard sci-fi books I’ve read in years . . .”
“Mind boggling. New Eden will change the way you view the universe and life itself.”
After the untimely death of his mentor, Berkeley physicist Joshua Andrews has dedicated himself to finishing his mentor’s life work: creating entangled particles that can communicate faster than light. When scientific journalist Rachael Miller comes to interview him at his lab, they make an astounding discovery, one as ancient as the universe itself.
During the early moments of the Big Bang, entangled particles were created that spread with the expansion of the universe creating a subatomic communication network—a network that Joshua and Rachael have accidentally tapped into.
This discovery sets the pair off on an incredible journey of revelation that profoundly alters the course of human history and redefines the meaning of life itself. Their journey ultimately leads them to a distant planet, New Eden, a genetically engineered paradise designed to be the new home for humanity.
“Einstein was wrong. Light is not the fastest thing in the universe . . . information is. And everything is information.”
Kishore Tipirneni MD was born in India but moved to the US at the age of 4. He grew up in Columbus Ohio and taught himself computer programming in the 80’s while in high school.
After finishing high school, he was accepted into a combined BS/MD program in Akron which allowed him to get his bachelor’s degree and medical degree in 6 years. He did his residency in orthopedic surgery in Detroit and has been a practicing orthopedic surgeon in Phoenix since 1996.
Even though his official profession had been as an orthopedic surgeon, Kishore never lost his love of programming that he acquired from high school. In 1997, shortly after starting his practice, Kishore was on call one night and received a call from the local ER that there was a child with a wrist fracture. In 1997, x-rays were still be taken on film and not digitally. When the physician in the ER couldn’t accurately describe the x-rays of the wrist fracture over the phone, Kishore had to drive into the hospital just to look at the films to determine treatment. There had to be a better way to see x-rays from home. This prompted Kishore to write computer software that could use a digital camera to take a picture of the film x-rays and then securely display them on a website so that the physician could see them from home.
Over the next few years, this software became the leading digital x-ray software in the US for orthopedics and Kishore’s company was acquired in 2004 by Stryker Medical. Kishore owns many patents in both the medical and software space.
New Eden is Kishore’s first foray into the literary world, and due to his knowledge of both the medical science and computer science, he is uniquely able to intertwine these disparate subjects in this novel.
