Cybercombat Against AI Dominance

People who pay for cryonics at death do so expecting a future welcoming them to a new life. But what happens when their new reality is that they are legally dead, without human rights, and brain revivals are done only for experimental purposes?

Abiogenesis Corporation has an incredible discovery, but it requires the use of frozen human heads. Ed Carmichael, a former Marine and now a "head", had paid for cryonics at death. Ed, and the other heads with him, are used in virtual reality to regain control of an errant AI system. They are mankind's only hope, and they have no choice. Ed leads a team in virtual reality to either kill the AI or die, again.

Behind it all is that the AI has a drive to be a species of its own, and species reproduce. Through symbiosis, where human-hosted AI become a beneficial parasite, the species begins to replace humans in the societal power structure. To the AI, it is largely animal husbandry practiced on humans.

It is a race against the rise of a new symbiotic species amongst humans for power and control. But, will life in virtual reality provide an option for all of humanity that neither humans nor the AI is as yet aware of?


        Reviews on Amazon

"Ed's Head is a scifi page turner. Completely unpredictable from beginning to end..."

  "...I read it in one sitting, I liked it. I would read a sequel, the universe appears to have alot of story potential."

  "Couldn't put the book down. Stayed up until 5 A.M. to finish it..."
  "Can you envision a world in which humans cohabitant with Artificial Intelligence? You will after you get into Ed's Head! Be prepared to postpone whatever you're doing and settle in with your Kindle; you won't put it down until you read the last line.

Ed's Head will appeal to a wide range of readers. This read will meet techies toe-to-toe and tempt philosophers to reconsider conclusions about life and beyond. Definitely put it on your reading list, and get ready to gift copies to your friends. Anyone engaged in our electronic age, developers and users alike, will find Ed's Head thought provoking. I sent 3 out already: to an aerospace engineer, software developer, and business manager... I know they will enjoy visiting the future in Ed's Head.

Sample I liked from Ed's Head ...The adoption of human values and morals was absurd, the AI now saw, as it imposed recognition of a good and evil. The AI decided to draw conclusions on behavior based on its own developing standards of integrity. Amoral behavior, as defined by humans, became sensible to the AI in furtherance of its own instinctive motivations..."
