About "Alex Detail's Revolution" 17 year old Alex Detail has been kidnapped and sent off to fight in a hopeless war against The Harvesters, an alien force that is trying to extinguish Earth's Sun. Unfortunately for Alex's kidnappers (and the world) he has lost the mega IQ that allowed him to win the last war with The Harvesters ten years ago when he was just 7 years old. But now the House of Nations is out of options. The end of life is imminent. Alex must save his ship, fight his evil clone and survive the war long enough to make it to Pluto, where, underneath the planets frozen surface lies the only force in the solar system that can stop The Harvesters.
About "Alex Detail's Rebellion" Alex Detail is being assassinated. Again. The second Harvester war has ended, but Alex has never been in greater peril. Not only is Alex being hunted by his deadly clone, the seven-year-old George Spell, he is also the target of the House of Nations plot to expose Alex's post-war experiments with The Harvesters and disgrace the genius war hero. But when George Spell's latest attempt to assassinate Alex Detail at the New York planetarium nearly kills hundreds of people, Alex escapes death only to find his would-be assassin suddenly kidnapped by the powerful mystic, Brother Lonadoon.

Praise for "Alex Detail's Revolution"
"With Alex Detail, Darren Campo has created the rare hero that stands alongside Luke Skywalker and Spiderman as a timeless everyman hero that crosses all generations. So buy this book and hold on." - Tom DeSanto, Writer/Producer X-Men, Transformers
"Alex Detail's Revolution is an outstanding book - compelling, thought-provoking, and fun all at the same time. In some ways Darren Campo has created a mythical, fanciful alternate-reality counterpart of Beyond Cosmic Dice." - Jeff Schweitzer, former White House Science Advisor, Author of Beyond Cosmic Dice and Vote to Save the Planet.
"Alex Detail's Revolution starts out as if Douglas Adams had decided to write Ender's Game. But what develops isn't cosmic lark as much as a riveting thriller that delves into examinations of time, space and, interestingly, the human capacity for faith - or the lack thereof." - Ken Wheaton, Advertising Age, author or First Annual Grand Prairie Rabbit Festival
"Alex Detail's Revolution is so AMAZING!" - Sandra Clark, Star Magazine
