The Final War is coming.
Elaine McGee is the science teacher at Krauss Junior High School. She’s been going through a bad patch recently and is trying to make changes to turn her life around. She broke up with her lying, cheating, good-for-nothing boyfriend this morning. A couple of hours ago she smoked her last ever cigarette. She’s in a tent away from town, a quiet place to think it all through, and add to her list. She’s good at making lists, not so good at finishing them.
Then the spaceship arrived. Elaine is about to get some unexpected help from the largest mathematical concept, infinity.
Welcome to the Final War, Elaine McGee.
Chiro is First Minister of the Goodness Empire, an alliance of empires that rule eighty percent of the universe. He’s ruthless, crafty and sadistic. As the leader of the largest of five factions, former enemies come together after centuries of warfare, Chiro navigates the bumpy landscape of cooperation. The factions all share one trait. They are authoritarian regimes, that ugly, dangerous blend of industry, government, media and military where the only disagreement allowed is over who agrees the most. Chiro believes he finally has the means to crush the rebel areas of the outer spiral arms.
Professor Lawrence Chu is a math professor at the University of Bilcor-Anders in the outer spiral arm of the Milky Way Galaxy. Professor Chu may have solved an unsolvable problem. If true, the rebels will have a formidable new weapon. And it all started with an argument about a kiss.
