Are we forfeiting the future?
A new novel from author Bruno de Marques explores the potential of the technological advances imagined in science fiction classics
What happened to the future? We live in 2016 and yet we have little to show for it – no flying cars, no humanoid robots, no manned space exploration. When did those dreams die?
Future Man, the new novel from author Bruno de Marques, seeks to revive that once-promising vision of the future. The tightly wound plot follows Vincent, an average, middle-aged man from Delaware, who is disillusioned by the unfulfilled promises of the science fiction of his youth.
Determined to usher in a new era of technological advances, Vincent searches the world for scientists who can help turn his vision to reality. What follows is an adventurous journey across the globe – and the Cosmos – as Vincent seeks to develop the technology that will create more interesting and fulfilling lives for people all over the world.

Kirkus Reviews describes Future Man as “Highly imaginative” … “Action packed book” … “This wildly creative work certainly takes readers to many unexpected places.”
RevolutionSF calls it a “Thrilling adventure based on World War II history (…) made better by dialogue that really sounds like it comes from real people” adding that “The story takes place in present tense (…) It ratchets up the tension, as if it’s happening right now and you, the reader, are right there” … concluding with “Future Man is a potent combo of history, science and adventure.”
