I don’t read comics, but I like making them. That is, I like making them when they’re not too much work, and no site made it easier than bitstrips.com. I loved that site. Now it’s gone and I’m sad. But I still have some comics I made about the two things I love most: writing and m’pups. If anyone knows of a replacement, please let me know.
Perion Synthetics is a book that raises some interesting questions involving synthetic life living alongside “real” life. There is a faint flavor of “I, Robot” in parts of this, but this story definitely goes its own way.
Perception is reality, but not really! I planned to read several books in parallel during my vacation, but ended up reading straight through this one – just had to see what happened! The desire to mask one’s true self and hide behind a veneer is common to all humanity. Skip forward into the future and see how powerful, high-tech veneers change the world and everyones reality. The veneers are powerful and different, but people are the same – they use veneers to hide, control and to take advantage of others. This story is full of surprises, technology and conflict that drew me in, and is set in a high-tech future that really made me wonder if this kind of world might someday become a reality. Very thought provoking and creative! Be warned – the sex, language and violence definitely makes this an adults-only book.
