Clay writer's second book is out
"Infusion of Evil," by David S. Rosenberg, is available at several book stores.

Contributing writer
Before David S. Rosenberg, of Clay, released "No Shortage of Evil" last year, he made sure the book jacket had a Roman numeral one on it. He knew two more books would follow.

"Once you've got the first one published, the minute you send it in and it's been accepted you start writing the second one," the Clay resident said.

His second book, "Infusion of Evil," was released Aug. 7.

In this geo-political thriller, FBI Special Agent Donald Corbbitt combats a new defense industry that is financed by the Octagon Alliance, Third World industrialists who vow to suppress Western influence in the world. They come from eight countries, including Dubai, Malaysia, Japan, Korea, Indonesia and Pakistan.

"They would be like the Osama Bin Ladens of these Third World countries, and instead of getting their hands dirty and living in caves, they're industrialists who use other people to do work for them," Rosenberg said.

In "Infusion of Evil," the local author takes technology as it exists today a step further. The alliance uses nanotechnology, the emerging engineering science of building objects on a molecular level, to create small robotic weapons.

Nanotechnology is a concept that will become commonplace in a short time, similar to the way cell phones were 10 years ago, Rosenberg said.

"I don't want to write science fiction that makes the reader take a huge leap intellectually for it to even be believable," he added.

This concept already has been talked about in Israel, where the government is looking at miniature robots as a new weapon in its military arsenal. If used, the "bionic hornet" would be able to chase, photograph and kill unreachable targets, like rocket launchers.

In "Infusion of Evil," miniature robots invade the United States. Although the country suffers from these robotic attacks, it faces a challenge in detecting weapons that are so small.

"I like to give the newer technology to the evil side of the book because it makes it very challenging for my hero to deal with the new problem, a problem which hasn't been considered before," he said.

Corbbitt, the hero, is a multidimensional character who has a unique ability to take timely action in responding to terrorist attacks. He also has weaknesses, Rosenberg said.

"In some books, the only thing the hero is missing is the 'S' on his shirt and the cape on his back. That's not what I write. I write about real people and real struggles and challenges," he said.

Although Corbbitt's professional needs are satisfied, he lacks real romance, which is where Jocelyn Hafner comes in. In "No Shortage of Evil," Hafner, a communications specialist, is tired of casual relationships and the men who come in and out of her life. She takes steps to correct the way she interacts with men before she meets Corbbitt, who is trying to stop the spread of government corruption by foreign influences.

"Instead of having a superficial relationship, they have a real romance that starts in the first book and endures in all three. It's the back story that supports everything else," Rosenberg said.

Publish America published both of Rosenberg's books, but he has to promote them himself.

"Infusion of Evil" is available locally at Books 4 Less on Oswego Road in Liverpool,, Borders, Barnes & Noble and other major bookstores.

"Infusion of Evil" is 282 pages long. The book took Rosenberg 1,000 hours to write and 300 hours to edit. The third book, "Extension of Evil," is scheduled for release in 2007. Rosenberg said he is working on his fifth book now.
