Overview

In this sequel to Post-Human, humanity will be forced to face a future more advanced than it could have imagined if it wants to survive. Nineteen months have passed since the A.I. turned against humanity and was subsequently destroyed. In the meantime, James Keats has turned over the A.I.'s powers to a non-intelligent, easily controlled operating system. He and Thel have left the planet and spent six months vacationing on Venus, which has been newly terraformed without the consent or knowledge of the Governing Council. The A.I. has been deleted, but the message it sent out into the abyss of space in search of a companion has been answered. An alien force dwarfing the Earth is on its way to find out why the A.I. has stopped communicating. Keats and company can only assume its intentions will be hostile when it finds out the truth. Only one thing is for sure: nothing will ever be the same again. Welcome to the Trans-Human era. Welcome to the singularity.

"A thought-provoking, energetic sci-fi book, with a robust dose of high-octane exploits." -By A.F. Stewart, author of Chronicles of the Undead

Meet the Author

Amazon, just like the University of Toronto's Academic Bridging program, gave me the opportunity I needed to prove myself. Because of them, a runaway who had to sleep in a shopping cart at sixteen, a high-school dropout with seemingly no prospects, went on to live in the best city in the world, meet the best woman in the world and marry her, attain two degrees from one of the top forty universities in the world, before achieving his dream of being a full-time author and having one of the best-selling science fiction series in the world.

    An incredibly engaging story that refuses to be put down

    This novel depicts, in a quite unprecedented way, the great potential of humanity to exceed its own natural boundaries and become something greater, while still remaining true to our virtues. It is thought-provoking without impeding the flow of the story. David Simpson does a fantastic job of tying together a multitude of compelling concepts in a way I haven't seen before.
