Out on May 20th from Tor Books, The Boost by Stephen Baker follows software prodigy Ralf as he uncovers a conspiracy connected to the “boosts” most of the population uses to enhance their brain power. Invented by Chinese researchers in 2023, the boost is credited with leading humanity to its most significant cognitive leap since the discovery of fire, but now someone is trying to roll back the privacy protections the American government negotiated when the boosts were first installed. Only Ralf, stripped of his boost and exiled to the U.S.-Mexico border, where other “wild,” unenhanced humans live, can stop them.
