Anderson O’Donnell Comes Aboard Seventh Star Press With Kingdom and Other Tiber City Novels

Seventh Star Press is proud to announce that Anderson O’Donnell is coming aboard with his highly-acclaimed dystopian/noir novel Kingdom and future books featuring Tiber City!

Kingdom will be released as a second edition by Seventh Star Press during the summer of 2014, with future Tiber City novels to follow!  It will be issued in trade paperback in all eBook formats.

Original cover of 1st
edition of Kingdom

Kingdom became an indie book sensation in 2012, when Kirkus Reviews made it one of their top 25 Indie Books of 2012, saying this about the novel: “A taut, brilliantly conceived thriller with impeccable pacing bursting with ideas…For fans of noir-laden science fiction in the vein of Philip K. Dick that is in equal measures suspenseful, gripping, darkly funny and philosophically challenging.”

Kingdom takes the reader into a secret laboratory hidden under the desert, where a covert bioengineering project—codename “Exodus”—has discovered the gene responsible for the human soul.

Somewhere in the neon sprawl outside the nation’s collapsing economic core, a group of renegade monks are on the verge of uncovering a secret that has eluded mankind for centuries.

In a glittering tower high above the urban decay, an ascendant U.S. Senator is found dead—an apparent, yet inexplicable, suicide.

And in the streets below, a young man races through an ultra modern metropolis on the verge of a violent revolution….closing in on the terrible truth behind Exodus—and one man’s dark vision for the future of mankind.

Welcome to Tiber City.

Obsessed with Dystopian/noir fiction, the Clash, and his two sons, Anderson O’Donnell holds an undergraduate degree in English from the College of the Holy Cross. He has studied creative writing extensively with biopunk genre master Jack O’Connell and poet Robert Cording, whose work influenced Kingdom’s high/low culture dynamic. Anderson lives in Washington, DC, with his family.

Aided only by a motley gang of friends, AB’Gale train hops her way across the United States in a desperate attempt to find her papa and put her life and family back the way it was. Her only guide is a map given to her by a mysterious hobo, with hand written clues she found hidden in her papa’s spyglass.
