|Introduction||MICHAEL ISENBERG has had a checkered career as a plant automation engineer, Six Sigma Black Belt, weapons merchant, astrophysicist, & manufacturer of cigarette butts.
He was awaken from his dogmatic slumber and began blogging in 2007 in response to the Bush Administration’s warrantless wiretapping of American citizens.
His first novel, Full Asylum, was published in 2012. It shows what America will look like if it continues on the path of big government. But since George Orwell and Ayn Rand already wrote the grim version of that story, Isenberg wrote a comedy.
Today, he writes primarily about Islam, which he first researched in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. He found both its achievements & its self-inflicted collapse during the Middle Ages so fascinating, he had to tell the story. 2018’s The Thread of Reason is the result.
Dr. Isenberg earned his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. He resides in New England with 912 books, his collection of small batch bourbons, and his memories of his dear, departed Lady Jane Grey, the swellest stray cat ever to yowl at a stranger's door at two in the morning.
