“Hugo Material!” ~ Nick Cole
Praise for Brother, Frankenstein
“I just finished beta reading Michael Bunker’s new heartbreakingly awesome novel and I have this to say: Hugo Material.” ~ Nick Cole, bestselling author of Old Man and the Wastelandand Soda Pop Soldier.
“Brother, Frankenstein finally cements Michael Bunker’s position as one of the most interesting and dynamic sci-fi writers emerging from today’s vibrant indie scene. It’s a tense, exciting, often violent actioner that like its protagonist, benefits greatly from a still-beating heart underneath all the technological bells and whistles.” ~ Eamon Ambrose, Eamo the Geek Reviews
“…white-knuckle reading throughout…” ~ Hank Garner, Host of Author Stories Podcast
“…The tension between technology and agrarian simplicity runs like a bright thread through the work— those characters on the technology side are affected by the interaction with their (presumed) opposites, and those on the Amish side are changed and tested as well.” ~ Richard Gleaves, author of the bestselling Jason Crane series.
“…an intriguing and suspenseful novel. I instantly rooted for Frank…” ~ Annelie Wendeberg, bestselling author of the Anna Kronberg thrillers.
“Bunker’s finest fictional creation to date…” ~ David Bruns, author of Weapons of Mass Deception
“I loved how this fantastic story of escape and rediscovery made me ponder over the awful consequences when men step into the part of the ‘creator’.” ~ E.E. Giorgi, author of CHIMERAS
A borderline sociopath and technological genius, Dr. Alexander has designed an advanced cybernetic life form from prototype defense industry materials and top-secret experimental DARPA technology. The HADroid was supposed to be a military grade robot with the transplanted heart and brain of a human donor that would “transform” into a devastating state of the art war machine when activated by its onboard human operator.
But when the doctor steals the dying child of a simple Amish couple and transplants the brain and cardiovascular system of their eleven year old autistic son into the incredibly lethal but human looking robot, the dark forces of government come looking for their investment.
Dr. Alexander and the monster escape into another Amish community to hide among the plain folk while Frank, the autistic eleven year old boy trapped inside the body of a man that can become the world’s deadliest robot, befriends another child who will help the prisoner inside the machine to leave the world of autism and understand what it means to be human and Amish. Outside Amish country a larger battle looms, but tensions arise among the plain and pacifistic Amish as they begin to suspect just what kind of technological monstrosity is hiding among them, and before long hard men who do the government’s most dirty deeds will come looking for a killing machine… only to find a boy named Frank who has the power to defend a closed society from the worst of the world.
