Overview

He is humanity's crowning achievement. He is an intelligent, sentient being. And, he is about to be killed.

Created in the late 21st Century, Abe is the first cloned human android and a remarkable achievement in artificial intelligence and genetic engineering. He's also an innovative medical product that has embroiled the Multipurpose Android and Cloning Corporation in controversy.

To protect their interests, MACC executives find a lucrative way to dispose of their problematic product and unleash a plan to ensure the company's future and foster public support. Abe, however, has a different vision of the future and greater potential than anyone realizes. With the clock ticking and a storm of uncertainty raging around him, Abe executes plans of his own.

And, the countdown begins...

Written in a classic style, this hard science fiction novel focuses on the dilemmas of playing God and the pitfalls of advancing technology without care and appropriate safeguards. It probes the many challenges that face our global societies today.

Praise for Clonedroid: The New Wave:

Superb! One of the best sci-fi books I read in recent memory. The author has a great writing style, captures corporate and social dynamics, the characters are quite believable with strong real emotions, the main AI character is compelling, the science is solid and believable. Some very good discussions on the ethics of cloning and organ harvesting of potentially sentient beings. add a final dash of some philosophy and you have a fantastic read! I sure hope there's a sequel this would be a great series.

Fantastic new "classic" hard science fiction This book was a treat to read. It reminded me of the classic hard sci find that used to be more prevalent. Like Asimov's later writing in style, but with Crichton's technical detail. It even has the social commentary typical of classic sci fi, along with real science. At the mid point of the book, I couldn't put it down and finished in one shot. Hopefully we see more of this.
