I’ve engaged with a literary agent, Mark Gottlieb (Trident Media Group), and the manuscript for Primordial Threat is being shopped around to publishers. Keep your fingers crossed and I’ll let you know when something comes of it.

I may have a longer list of blurbs in due time, but for now, these are the eight comments I’ve received from some authors, listed in no particular order:

“With Primordial Threat, Michael Rothman puts the OMG back in Science Fiction! Fascinating characters, an Asimov-sized plot, and lots of intrigue. Michael Rothman delivers. Chilling Science Fiction from a new Arthur C. Clarke. Movie-ready SF from a new master!”
      – William C. Dietz, New York Times bestselling author

“Michael Rothman’s PRIMORDIAL THREAT is a big disaster novel — maybe  the biggest, with the end of the solar system in play. There goes the neighborhood! Filled with innovative science and big-scale action, it shows humanity in crisis, and humanity at its best.”
      – Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of BLOOD OF THE COSMOS

“It has been a long time since I’ve seen a novel with big mind-blowing hard SF ideas like this.  It reminds me very much of Asimov, and that is very welcome indeed.”
      – David Farland, New York Times Bestselling, Award-winning Author

“Michael A. Rothman’s PRIMORDIAL THREAT leverages real technical expertise to find the human drama in a plausible near-future extinction scenario. This is gripping reading, one part Larry Niven and one part Michael Crichton!”
      – D.J. Butler, author of WITCHY EYE and THE KIDNAP PLOT

“Michael A. Rothman’’s PRIMORDIAL THREAT is a beautifully-conceived hard science adventure, with totally believable characters and events, and a truly satisfying conclusion.””
      – Mike Resnick, 4-time Hugo Award Winning author

“The Primordial Threat is the Next Level in Extinction Event thrillers. Rothman deftly navigates actual science with a taut edge-of-your-seat tension that will scare you to death. I wouldn’t be surprised if he wasn’t already gaming Worst Case Scenarios for the White House.”
      – Nick Cole, author of The Old Man and the Wasteland (Amazon #1 in SciFi) and Soda Pop Soldier (Publisher’s Weekly Starred Review)

“Who says hard science fiction is dead? The field is safe and sound in the hands of Michael Rothman. Real science from a real scientist — and a thrilling page-turner, to boot. What more could one ask?”
      – Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Quantum Night

“Written by one who really knows the science, PRIMORDIAL THREAT zips along–a hard sf treat.”
      – Gregory Benford, New York Times bestselling author of TIMESCAPE.
