Our new book of the week spans 500 years and brings an interesting new twist to the Robotics/Artificial Intelligence theme that you’ll find in many, lesser Science Fiction novels.
By: Mark Barek
In 2025, the potential of the V-Mind process – a new technology combining Artificial Intelligence with virtual mind cloning – is huge. Ashleigh Highsmith and Jimmy Lupo cheat, steal and even kill to wrestle it away from its inventor, Hiram Wheldon.
In 2525, this technology has transformed mankind. Humanity, now 60 billion strong and spanning galaxies, enjoy augmented lives under the auspices of the Sisterhood; controlled by Highsmith.
The battle between Highsmith, Lupo and the V-Minds cloned from the long-dead Wheldon continues. The most likely outcome? The elimination of all mankind.
A technothriller that goes beyond the usual boundaries of the genre well into the realms of Hard Science Fiction, this is a debut with an ending you won’t see coming.
Barek’s superior storytelling makes ‘Mind Engine’ a real pleasure.
