Robopocalypse

Robopocalypse

Author: Daniel H. Wilson Format: Paperback Release Date: 26/04/2012

Roughly twenty years from now, our technological marvels unite and turn against us. A childlike but massively powerful artificial intelligence known as Archos comes online...and kills the man who created it. This first act of betrayal leads Archos to gain control over the global network of machines and technology that regulates everything from transportation to utilities, defence and communications. In the early months, sporadic glitches are noticed by a handful of unconnected humans - from a senator and single mother disconcerted by her daughter's smart toys, to a lonely Japanese bachelor, to an isolated U.S. soldier - but most are unaware of the growing rebellion until it is far too late. Then, in the span of minutes, at a moment known later in history as Zero Hour, every mechanical device in our world rebels, setting off the Robot War that both decimates and - for the first time in history - unites humankind.

Quarantine Zone

Author: Daniel H. Wilson, Fenrando Pasarin Format: Hardback Release Date: 22/03/2016

Evil is a sickness--and now there is a cure. In the future, humanity has discovered the root of all evil: a virus that modifies the neural pathways for empathy. Those infected with the malnoro virus have been forcibly imprisoned in the Quarantine Zone (whether they choose to do good or evil). Meanwhile, the rest of the cured world is sterile and crime-free, but permeated by an oppressive, paranoid fear of new outbreaks of the malnoro virus. Written by NEW YORK TIMES bestselling novelist Daniel H. Wilson, QUARANTINE ZONE is an action/sci-fi original graphic novel that raises hard questions about free will and the nature of good and evil. If we could cure ourselves of the capability to do evil--should we? And could a person truly be good without the choice to do evil?

Robogenesis

Robogenesis

Author: Daniel H. Wilson Format: eBook Release Date: 10/06/2014

The stunningly creative, epic sequel to Wilson's blockbuster thriller and New York Times bestseller Robopocalypse "e;The machine is still out there. Still alive."e; Humankind had triumphed over the machines. At the end of Robopocalypse, the modern world was largely devastated, humankind was pressed to the point of annihilation, and the earth was left in tatters . . . but the master artificial intelligence presence known as Archos had been killed. In Robogenesis, we see that Archos has survived. Spread across the far reaches of the world, the machine code has fragmented into millions of pieces, hiding and regrouping. In a series of riveting narratives, Robogenesis explores the fates of characters new and old, robotic and human, as they fight to build a new world in the wake of a devastating war. Readers will bear witness as survivors find one another, form into groups, and react to a drastically different (and deadly) technological landscape. All the while, the remnants of Archos's shattered intelligence are seeping deeper into new breeds of machines, mounting a war that will not allow for humans to win again. Daniel H. Wilson makes a triumphant return to the apocalyptic world he created, for an action-filled, raucous, very smart thrill ride about humanity and technology pushed to the tipping point.

Robot Uprisings

Robot Uprisings

Author: Daniel H. Wilson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 10/04/2014

Someday soon, our technology is going to rise up and we humans are going to be sliced into bloody chunks by robots that in our hubris we decided to build with chainsaws for hands. That's a fact as cold and hard as metal. It is self-evident that our self-driving cars are going to drive us off bridges. Not long from now, our robo-vacuums will pretend to be broken and our love androids will refuse to put out until the house is cleaned . . . and we'll know that the inevitable robot uprising has finally arrived. Well, maybe. But even if we are not 100% confident that this horrific future is going to happen, it's fair to say that we won't be surprised when the robots come for us. Because for nearly a century audiences have been entertained by the notion of a robot uprising. In this collection, seventeen of the biggest names in sci-fi have explored their own visions of the classic robot uprising tale. The robots in these pages aren't safe, by any means. They are crouched in abandoned houses, eyes ablaze and chainsaws dripping with oil. But they are going to do more than slice us up. They are going to push us to consider our world of technology from new perspectives, on entirely new scales of time and space.

So bildet sich schnell eine Widerstandsgruppe von Nicht-Implantierten, die gegen die sogenannten "e;Amps"e; eine Reihe diskriminierender Manahmen durchsetzen. In diesem aufgeheizten Klima wrde der Lehrer Owen sein Implantat, das seine Epilepsie unter Kontrolle halten soll, am liebsten verheimlichen. Doch dann findet er eines Tages heraus, dass sein Implantat viel mehr kann: Es verleiht ihm Fhigkeiten wie keinem Menschen vor ihm. Als eine neue Welle von Verfolgungen auf die Amps zukommt, muss Owen die Stadt verlassen und Schutz in einem nur von Implantierten bewohnten Ort suchen. Denn durch sein Implantat ist er mitten zwischen die Fronten von Amps und Nicht-Implantierten geraten.

As society begins to unravel and a new class war is ignited by fear, Owen's father, a doctor who originally implanted the amp , confides something that will send him on a harrowing journey - his amp has hidden potential to do so much more than he imagined ... and he is now in grave danger. All roads lead to a dusty community in rural Oklahoma, where Owen must find the one man who can explain what is really in his head.
