Great sci-fi book set in a world not far from our own
Perion Synthetics is a gripping story that combines a lot of the best of alternative/cyberpunk-esque worlds while touching on subjects that aren’t too far from current events. There are business moguls making bad (far-reaching) decisions, government mandated corporate medical procedures, journalists scrambling to get some sort of story out however they can, and groups trying to restore the sanity they believe has been lost through the years. Add in some questions about how things will be handled in a post-singularity world, explosions and synthetic creations that are far beyond the uncanny valley, and you’ve got a great read.
Easily my favorite sci-fi work by the author so far.
