Political satire included. Sense of Humor Required.

The President for Life has the Brawn; the girl he must kidnap has the BrainTrust. *Game On!*

The Red government's Deportation Phase II expelled all the foreign engineers from Silicon Valley. So the Valley companies anchored a fleet of cruise liners off the coast to give their people a new home. Thus was born the BrainTrust.

Now Dash, a brilliant young scientist from southeast Asia, has come to research human rejuvenation. No one needs her experimental therapy more than the aged and dying President for Life. His Chief Advisor will stop at nothing to grab her for the needs of the state.

Even if it means turning the BrainTrust into a radioactive wasteland.

The BrainTrust has no Army, no Navy, no Air Force. Their ships have neither weapons nor armor. Yet a key question remains: can a society that has earned the name BrainTrust ever be truly defenseless?

Nominated for the 2018 Prometheus Award.

If you like Charles Stross, Vernor Vinge, Robert Heinlein; or if you simply want to explore a thoughtful yet light-hearted extrapolation America's current path; welcome to the BrainTrust.
