More About Supersymmetry by David Walton
 
 
 
Overview
Ryan Oronzi is a paranoid, neurotic, and brilliant physicist who has developed a quantum military technology that could make soldiers nearly invincible in the field. The technology, however, gives power to the quantum creature known as the varcolac, which slowly begins to manipulate Dr. Oronzi and take over his mind. Oronzi eventually becomes the unwilling pawn of the varcolac in its bid to control the world.
The creature immediately starts attacking those responsible for defeating it fifteen years earlier, including Sandra and Alex Kelley--the two versions of Alessandra Kelley who are still living as separate people. The two young women must fight the varcolac, despite the fact that defeating it may mean resolving once again into a single person.

If at first you don’t succeed, change the past. That lesson haunts this family drama turned world-saving exercise. As in Superposition, the Kelley family faces an invading quantum intelligence, the varcolac, which seeks to eliminate the messy multiplicity of humanity. Sisters Sandra and Alex (duplicates of an original Alessandra) attempt to decode their father’s cryptic mathematical clues and master the quantum technology that allows the varcolac access to our universe. They have two goals: defeat the alien, and keep from collapsing back into a single individual. Walton infuses humor (the end of the world “will make the lines shorter on Black Friday”) into his otherwise bleak look at the inevitability of humankind’s self-destruction. Meditations on identity link to the ethics of changing the past in ways that help convince the reader to accept a resolution involving a worrisome but unavoidable sacrifice. Agent: Eleanor Wood, Spectrum Literary Agency. (Sept.)
