Sven Michael Davison, author of the recently published “State of Mind” announces “Dreams, Faith & Ammunition”

"State of Mind" book cover

It’s about Strangite Mormons and the obstacles we must all face when pursuing our own versions of the American Dream.

Sven Michael Davison has completed “Dreams, Faith & Ammunition,” a historical fiction/memoir, which will debut in late spring of 2012. Although predominantly a science fiction author, Sven Michael Davison has been working on “Dreams” since 1997. Davison notes: “This book was 80% complete when I started writing ‘State of Mind,’ it simply needed some finessing.”

Davison will reveal more about “Dreams, Faith & Ammunition” in the weeks to come, but for now he will simply say “it’s about Strangite Mormons and the obstacles we must all face when pursuing our own versions of the American Dream.” Look for a full synopsis and the book cover sometime in the next six to eight weeks.

“Sate of Union,” the sequel to “State of Mind” is still on track for release in late fall of this year. The third installment of the “God Head Trilogy” will be released in the early spring of 2013. That title will be announced around the time “State of Union” is published.

“State of Mind” is a cautionary tale that examines the loss of freedom in a classic post-industrial dystopia. Jake Travissi, a fallen hero, is given a rare second chance at redemption. The price? Volunteer to have a computer chip implanted in his brain and join Homeland Security’s experimental Enhanced Unit.

Davison wrestles with many of the most compelling themes of cyberpunk genre today: Should we embrace every technological advance without question? Should humankind blend itself physically with machines? What does freedom really mean? All of these questions are answered within a vivid tapestry where the boundaries between the virtual world and the real world have dissolved.

Sven Davison is a full time husband, father, and manager in a creative design agency in Los Angeles. He has written screenplays, trailers and special feature content for DVD and Blu-ray. This is his second novel.

“State of Mind” is a finalist and winner of two Dan Poynter’s Global eBook Awards.

“A thoughtfully composed piece of cyberpunk that will please readers of both science fiction and noir.” – Kirkus Reviews

“An intelligent, thought provoking, cinematic post-cyberpunk thriller and a great read.”
