Unique. A Masterful Vision. So Real, It Hurts.
2021 Hoffer Award Finalist
Everett Aboud is stuck in his no-job, no-future routine when Philip Machen unveils 55 million Trojan horse matter replicators. Overnight, Philip's Maker machines fling open the rusted gates of possibility for everyone, including Everett.
Cash becomes trash, markets collapse, and airplanes are free to copy. It's a Big Money, Big Business, Big Government wipeout. Is Philip offering everyone a fresh start, or is he destroying civilization?
While the FBI hunts Philip, and the world's power elites scramble to crush his Maker revolution, Everett Aboud must choose between a handful of disorganized Freemakers or the Tory vigilantes who hunt them. Because soon there will be no middle ground.
You'll love Maker Messiah because it's more than the sum of its parts. It's a vision to die for.
Read it now.

"What do you call a man who stands the world on its head, overnight and without permission? Megalomaniac? Infidel? Messiah? His goal was to advance a moral vision. His motive was revenge. But Philip Machen didn't talk about changing the world until he'd already done it. By then it was too late. Curse him, worship him, or ignore him, the rest of us had to figure it out for ourselves. Before the vigilantes came for us." - Everett Aboud
"Ed Miracle's Maker Messiah has all the great elements of science fiction: a visionary social quandary, genuinely flawed characters trying to negotiate their way through a totally unexpected new 'normal, ' and veiled subversive commentary on how authority responds to change. What if a solution to society's biggest problem appeared out of nowhere? How would the rich, poor, and middle adapt? Would the economy welcome it? Could government leaders guide their countries into a better future? Would corporations find a way to embrace the solution? The coolest thing about Miracle's new book is that when you look at those questions, you kind of know the answers, and it ain't pretty. But you'll keep reading because one question dwarfs the others: what happens next?"

And the only way to get it out of the hands of our greedy, mostly self-appointed leaders is described in this book. And even then we 'll have to rip it out of their cold dead hands....
It's well written and kept me reading as often as I could free up some time.
The only nit I have to pick was the Power Pods. The invention of cheap, clean, plentiful power would bring a lot of energy companies down on the invention. If you could power your house with a box outside your door, the power companies, transmission companies and (certainly not least) the oil and gas companies would be lobbying hard to make them illegal and/or destroy production.
That said - this book is an exploration of the effects on society and the response to the Makers. It does not fall down on that aspect at all. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
It really made me think long and hard about what I would do if I were in the situation in the book. It kept me up so late because I could not put it down. This would be a great feature film with Eva Mendes as the reporter, Shia LeBouf as Everett , and Patrick Adams as Parker. I cant wait for another of this amazing author!
I’d like to read the next book in which the Maker Movement takes off in the virtuous cycle Machen’s dreams imagined and the yield the wonderful outcomes he set in motion.
I really enjoyed how the characters and their relationships developed as the story unfolded — along with the development of the thinking behind the idea of a Maker mentality.
