I am Kevin Bohacz, a #1 bestselling author, lucid dreamer, Tesla fanatic, futurist, and mad scientist. Welcome to my dreams and my novels!
When I’m not busy writing op-eds and debating politics, science, e-cars, or human nature, I’m busy writing what I love to read, fiction with some real meat on its bones. More than anything, I love good contemporary earthbound techno-thrillers or sci-fi along the lines of Michael Crichton. So I write what’s called contemporary literary, upmarket techno-thrillers and sci-fi. All my novels wrestle with the big questions of life. Who are we? What are we? Why are we? This comes out in the form of genre-bending supernatural threads that are woven through my books.
You can find many articles written about my work in newspapers and magazines. In a 2014 article Publisher’s Weekly labeled me as one of the “Writers Who Rocked Self-Publishing” and reported how my books “exploded” on Amazon. Prior to that Publisher’s Weekly also did a full page interview of me: “The World has Completely Changed.”
I have been awarded starred reviews for my novels from Publishers Weekly as well as high praise from many other book review publications. I have also written for national computer magazines, founded two high technology corporations, worked as a scientist and engineer for over 35 years, and am the inventor of an advanced electric car system. I was also a short order cook for I-Hop, flipped burgers at McDonald’s, and delivered Chicken Delight. All of those careers and more have been behind me now for many years since I became a full-time storyteller, a catcher of dreams. Thank you for reading my stories and making this all possible.
#1 Bestselling techno-thriller, published 2007
Kirkus: There is enough power in the premise to leave readers reeling. A novel that will surprise fans of science-fiction and doomsday scenarios…
Publisher’s Weekly STARRED review: Bohacz’s vision of a humanity that faces the need to evolve profoundly or face certain destruction is as timely as today’s news and as chilling a doomsday scenario as any ecological catastrophe can suggest….
Full Publisher’s Weekly STARRED review: When human extinctions occur in South America and spread worldwide, paleobiologist and genetic researcher Mark Freedman senses a connection to the Chromatium Omri bacteria, the oldest known life form on Earth linked to previous extinctions. The growing virulence in the “kill zones” spurs Freedman to join forces with Kathy Morrison, expert on viral and bacterial pathogens with the Centers for Disease Control. Despite personal losses, Freedman and Morrison find romance and make discoveries about the devastation and what lies behind it. Other colorful characters include dedicated policewoman Sarah Mayfair, whose horrific dreams and improbable survival enable contact with the forces behind the outbreaks; cynical Gen. James McKafferty, committed to preserving the U.S. at whatever cost; and Artie Hartman, goaded by his wife’s death to wage war on gangs and government forces indiscriminately. The seemingly random attacks and emergence of chaos allow Bohacz to explore such themes as whether humanity deserves to survive, the meaning of being human, and the cost of perfect health and immortality. The originality of Bohacz’s ideas is nearly equaled by detailed descriptions of a decontamination lab, the frenzied search for answers, and the aftermath of destruction. His vision of a humanity that faces the need to evolve profoundly or face certain destruction is as timely as today’s news and as chilling a doomsday scenario as any ecological catastrophe can suggest.
Sci-Fi Reader – S.J. Higbee: This book manages to do what all the best sci-fi does – provide a thought-provoking, alternative viewpoint on the business of existence. I recommend you give it a go. (read the full review)
“Speaking as an evolved Transhuman, I applaud this very entertaining, intelligent, and thought provoking journey to the edges of humanity.”
Danny Rubin, author and screenwriter of Groundhog Day.
“Immortality is a fine, tense, scientific mystery adventure that puts mankind in a challenge of survival with a short time limit. This is the way the world could end.”
Piers Anthony, author of 21 New York Times best-selling novels.
Immortality, the #1 best science fiction book of 2008 by W Thomas Payne No. 1 – “Immortality” by Kevin Bohacz capitalizes on the theme of impending environmental collapse and the rapid extinction of species that we read about daily in the national news. Following in the wake of the Hugo-award winning novel “Darwin’s Radio” (Greg Bear), Bohacz keeps the reader riveted with a tale of how the rules of evolution when being crushed by environmental factors could create new species that are “hidden” amongst us – including fellow members of the human race.
