Table of Contents HNMNBM
HNMNBM is science fiction romance. The purpose is to entertain, challenge, and inform. The book the story of three young men finding their place in life at the end of the 4th industrial revolution and the people they meet, love, and struggle with.

Many real companies/place names consider asking for permission and ....... I have tried to be more careful with people unless historical and famous e.g. Albert Einstein
The novel has a set of messages: 1) God will prevail and is worthy to be praised, 2) Caring about the planet is wise and reasonable, 3) Genetics, acting like God, can be foolish and dangerous, "get your own dirt. 4) Debt, leverage, can get out of control as quickly as opioids. I try to avoid Republican, Democrat, Right, Left, some bleedthrough may happen, will keep proofreading.
