The Final War is coming.
When weapons technology advances faster than empathy there is only one destination, an extinction event.
Elaine McGee is a junior high school science teacher. She’s been going through tough times recently. So she’s making some changes. 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 completing them.
Then the spaceship arrived. Elaine is about to get some unexpected help from the largest mathematical concept, infinity.
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, societies 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.

This is a marvelous book full of irreverent sci-fi! It has amazingly fun characters, good guys and very bad guys, lots of supposedly smart people and an all out war! No matter what you could possibly imagine, this story goes far beyond.
