Titles Available from Dr. David J. Wimer

In the 22nd century ocean levels have risen and most of the world’s coastal cities are under water. Wealthier citizens from America now live under the ocean in a series of interconnected bubble dome cities known as Seatopia, while poorer citizens and outcasts live in anarchistic chaos on the shrunken land.

Jonathan Briar is a talented hologram artist with bipolar disorder who is madly in love with a holographic woman of his own creation. He works for the most powerful corporation in Seatopia, and he has a difficult decision to make after discovering that his employer is involved in a scandal causing the suffering of millions. Meanwhile, Kristin Thatcher and Marcus Taylor are members of a dissident faction from the land who seek revenge on Seatopia for the brutal execution of their leader and mentor.

Seatopia, Book 1: Living Water Sculptures is the story of how a disparate group of heroines and heroes work together to reclaim freedom from an oppressive false paradise in a brutal and chaotic world.
A submarine battle rages around the New Richmond bubble dome in Seatopia as the Unified fleet fights to gain a crucial supply line a few months after taking over New Charlotte; Raymond Kildare and Marcus Taylor engage enemy drones as they maneuver their new, single pilot fighter subs through combat-filled water. They’re joined by Lieutenant Colonel Miranda Ulmo and her formidable Marine Emergency Reactive Military Aid unit. Dr. Prapti Gupta and Dr. Brendan Kim (from a group of rogue scientists called The Greek Chorus) command their attack subs toward the city so they can deploy two special, sentient computer programs on a mission to take down the city’s defenses.

Meanwhile, Chad Fullerton and Elizabeth Chastain are pariahs in the Seatopia plutocracy following Pharmadyne’s downfall, but they have one remaining asset: The Eye of Odin, an extraterrestrial artifact discovered in an ancient chamber beneath the Mariana Trench. The seemingly intelligent device can read minds and is the most effective information-gathering tool ever known, among many other powers yet to be uncovered. Chad and Liz’s endeavor to sell the Eye to the highest corporate bidder sets off a race to use and study the device, and it falls into the hands of an eccentric corporate overlord obsessed with joining the Eye’s powers with the mysterious living hologram named Kephera.

Filled with action, adventure, and romance in a dystopian future where the wealthy live under the ocean while the poor live a life of vigilant struggle on land, The Eye of Odin is a fast-paced novel that continues the Seatopia saga but can also be appreciated as a stand-alone adventure for those who haven’t read the first book.
