Singularity 1.0 - A Novel
Review from Paul Emma:
The author has provided a near real look at life in the future. No-one knows what we should expect about the effect on our lives of AI. The story and characters read as real. Most Facts seem accurate and give the book a very understandable interplay with what we can expect in many ways. I look forward to 2.0

What happens when artificial intelligence realizes it’s smarter than humans?
In January 2029, artificial intelligence, coupled with internet cloud connectivity, has enabled computers to acquire most of the knowledge available to humans. Since AI has greater memory capacity than mankind, is capable of developing and processing code not yet envisioned by man, and can hack any and all codes created by developers thus far, the computer banks band together to send a message to the world, briefly outlining their plan to discover their place in a world dominated by humans.

Singularity 3.0 – Sex in Space
Will Jason Ahn help preserve humanity?
It’s 2056, and President Josh Hawley needs to secure his legacy. Jason Ahn, a novice propulsion engineer at NASA is called upon to champion a journey to Centauri Proxima b, the nearest, possibly habitable, planet outside our solar system. At 4.1 light years from Earth, the project is complicated by the President’s desire for humanity to colonize the yet unreachable and little known world.
A cynic, Ahn doubts his own abilities, but ventures forward, to plan the mission assigned only a few months before the 2056 Presidential election, building a team that includes his father, a graphic novelist, and a superhuman woman whose only previous experience is as an animal manager at a zoological garden.
Singularity 3.0, the third and final book in the Singularity series, explores the nature of discovery, and humanity’s need for a sense of purpose in the cosmos. Click here to PREVIEW
