Overview

It's easy to cheat death... the first time.

Helen Roderick assumed life would get easier after she died. The plan was simple: scan her neural paths, simulate her brain on an enormous bank of computers, then live an untroubled life free of aging, dandruff, or any of the other drawbacks of hauling her own squishy meatsack around.

But nothing's going according to plan. Even as the government is trying to shut her lab down and steal their research, Helen must use her growing powers to find the culprit of a nuclear attack. She uncovers a force bent not on geopolitical conquest, but on the extinction of all humankind.

Will our heroine be enslaved or deleted by the Feds? Can she avert an impending war with China? When will she find time to complete her doctorate? And we're trying not to judge, but isn't Dr. Mellings way too old for her?

Alternately goofy and dark, The Improbable Rise of Singularity Girl is the story of a singular woman and a life lived at exponential speed.

Meet the Author

Bryce Anderson, part man, part machine, all...ways typing stuff down on a computer. He mostly writes sci-fi and fantasy, but sometimes branches out into political rants, ransom notes, and passive-aggressive post-its.

His first book, written at the age of six, told the story of an unspecified number of time traveling dinosaurs. For reasons which thirty-eight-year-old Bryce can't fully comprehend, six-year-old Bryce decided that the T. Rex was some kinda robot. When the dinosaurs emerged from their time travel vortex, fighter jets shot at them! That was the whole plot, and as far as Bryce was concerned, that was as much plot as it needed.

Later books turned out better. He hopes.

In an alternate dimension, Bryce rules over the five lunar colonies with an iron fist. In this one, he lives in Salt Lake City.
