Empathy for Andrew

by WJ Davies

The Center for Robotic Research takes quality assurance very seriously. Doctor Peter Hawthorne’s newest model, the Empathy 5, may finally have achieved true artificial intelligence–the first machine worthy of being called “alive”. But before these AI units can be certified for mass production, they must undergo intense psychological and emotional trials. After all, when you build a machine, you must try and test it to its very limits. Even to its breaking point.

This is the full novel edition and is an expansion of the original short story first written for The Robot Chronicles.

The Runner (Silo Submerged Book 1)

by WJ Davies

Please note: All three Silo Submerged books are now available in one volume! The Runner is book one. 

“As good as the source material — if not better! I loved this story and hardly breathed as I read it straight through.” —HUGH HOWEY, author of Wool.

“We all have a reason for being here, we’re just not sure what it is.” 

Time is running out. As the Great Flood threatens to consume the silo, Ace and a team of divers are in a desperate battle to avert disaster. When a terrible accident destroys the person he cares about most, Ace has little left to live for.

After nearly succumbing to the silo’s flooded depths, he realizes that drastic measures must be taken in order to save their underground home. But those in charge deem his ideas too dangerous, his methods too forbidden, and he is shunned for his sin of toxic words.

When an opportunity for redemption presents itself, Ace has only one question: Why should he fight to save these people, if they aren’t willing to help themselves?

*The Runner contains plot elements found in Hugh Howey’s Wool Omnibus (Wool 1-5).

The 13th Day of Christmas

by Robert Blevins

Seattle sci-fi author Robert Blevins’ third novel is an exciting tale in the spirit of works such as Marooned and Red Planet. A new U.S. President with vision has challenged NASA to do the impossible – launch a manned mission to Mars within four years, when Earth and Mars make their closest approach in a decade. The Mars 1 mission is a calculated risk and the stakes are high for both NASA and the Canadian Space Agency, who have combined forces to make it happen.

Conflict between a stubborn mission commander and the woman assigned to get everyone safely to the Martian surface increases those risks. As the world holds its breath, Mission Commander Michael Walker, MEV lander pilot Anna Johnson, and Mission Specialist Dale McKendrick roll the dice in a gamble unprecedented in space exploration. The gamble turns into a fight for survival when they find themselves stranded, out of contact with Earth, and days from running out of oxygen. Robert Blevins’ previous works include Say Goodbye to the Sun and the time-travel novel, The Corona Incident.
