The year is 2040. Facing the threat of a viral pandemic, four friends will finally unite for an extraordinary reunion. Within an orbiting virtual world, the former seminarians will confront personal demons, while sharing ideas about the meaning of life, friendship, and love—including the existence of God. It is an allegorical dance played out in the microcosmic and metaphysical drama of the human condition. Can they return to Earth before the plague makes it impossible, dropping the curtain on existence forever?

Rico, a 90-year-old, lives with his divorced daughter, Veronica, who also happens to be his doctor. His biggest challenge in life is keeping his stash of erectile dysfunction pills hidden from Veronica, until his old friend Bill visits – virtually – and informs Rico that he’s dead and living in the computer. Worse, in Rico’s view, Bill invites him to join him to help with an impending crisis. In the meantime, Veronica is trying to deal with the crisis precipitated by the resurrection of a lethal virus that threatens everyone on earth.
The Last Seminarian by R.M. Damato is a hard novel to categorize. Part dystopian future novel, part science fiction, Seminarian takes the reader on a chaotic ride with Rico as his consciousness is transferred to a computer where he rejoins the friends from his youth in a seminary. This story is told against the brief backdrop of an alien visitation with a twist that the reader really won’t see coming – and, if that doesn't whet your appetite for reading this book, you’re a jaded person.
