Being of Value

by Carol Davis

His name is Matthew. He’s an A.I. – artificial intelligence, an android who looks fully human. He walks, talks and interacts just like a human teenager. He has feelings, just like a human.

But that’s not enough for some of the members of the community he lives in, and it’s not enough for two visiting teenagers he’s been asked to escort. To them, he’s just a machine – which means they’re free to do with him whatever they choose, even if it means taking part in a game that might destroy him.

His name is Matthew, and he’s desperate to survive. Desperate for someone to care.

The Phoenix Conspiracy (The Phoenix Conspiracy Series Book 1)

by Richard Sanders

Calvin, an intelligence operative, is sent to eliminate a dangerous traitor. But, as he chases his prey across the stars, he realizes they are both pawns in a shadowy chess game. One that threatens humankind everywhere.

If he is to uncover the conspiracy he must confront–and embrace–the darkest elements of the galaxy. And throw himself, his career, and everyone he loves into the line of fire.

The Phoenix Conspiracy is the first in a series of five books. It is available for free on almost every device including iTunes, Nook, and (usually) Kindle.

Babel Genes: The Clone Soldier Chronicles: The Clone Soldier Chronicles – Book Five

by D. J. Takemoto

In the not too distant future, an asteroid will cross Earth’s path. Bennu is an Armageddon Class asteroid, but is also seeded with deadly virus-containing nanites. After the hit, the few remaining human species on the planet are mutants. Living in small colonies they have survived through the rising ocean, the heat of a vast dry Earth, and massive food and animal extinctions. The most serious problem is survival of the species, any living species. Because the biggest issue is they cannot produce live offspring; the surviving populations have become too genetically divergent. Like the biblical Tower of Babel, their genes cannot communicate.
An archeo-historical team dives deep into the submerged desert to retrieve a box. They hope to find clues, because the ancient leader, Dorian, a half computer/half bioengineered human, remembers the words of a dear friend’s last letter, “Do not destroy this letter. You will need it to grow.” Finding the letter, and deciphering its contents becomes a race against time. All organic life on Earth is rapidly succumbing to the virus. Soon, only AIs will populate the planet.
And now after over 800 years of life, Dorian understands he must soon leave, and he knows the letter has the key life, to overcome the Babel genes. Without this key, the new human subspecies cannot mate, or become the next ascending sentient species on Earth.

Babel Genes is a love story about Dorian and Dina, a halfsie from long ago; she was the first of her kind to live, a mutant who was accepted neither by humans nor the illusive and powerful non-human Catori tribe. Dorian is a cloned human, enhanced with brain implants and kept for the first eighteen years of his life as a prisoner in an underground military complex. He was their human computer. We discover, through Dina’s diary, how this unlikely pair finds love, acceptance for each other, and shape a future world; a world populated by human mutant subspecies that finally accept each other, but can’t seem to produce live offspring. Babel Genes spans from almost current time to 2807. It describes a fragile period on Earth, during which the progress of our science too rapidly surpasses our human moral perspective.

Old words

by Bryden Dyson

It was cold. The air had frozen and curved its flowery breath on the thin surface of the glass windows. His body was cold and, perhaps, far colder than the sno

dreary winter days when there was no sun in the sky, and he didn’t need to hide in the shadows. He liked cold because he didn’t need to hide from it.
