Welcome to the latest addition of the Indie Author Spotlight! This month we’ll be digging deep into the Post-Human series by science fiction and horror author, David Simpson. In this entry, your brain will overload with artificial intelligence and your mind will be transplanted with future technology the likes of which you’ve never dreamed. Prepare to be upgraded.
I actually purchased the first three books in the Post-Human series (Sub-Human, Post-Human, Trans-Human) about six months ago as David Simpson was offering the Kindle omnibus for just $.99. At the time, I already had a long list of books I wanted to read, but I couldn’t pass up the great deal; so, I bought them with the intention of reading them at some other point in time. Well, this month, instead of reading just one book for the spotlight as I have in the past, I set aside the time to read three of David’s novels! Let me tell you: I found myself wishing I had placed my reading list on the back burner and read his books months ago. Check out the premise of the series below to get glimpse of what I mean:
It’s the story of humanity’s future, both the possible bliss, the possible torment, and all of the in between. It might expand your view of what “human” really means, it might make you consider the pleasures and pains of immortality, and reflect on the extraordinary benefits and profound danger of strong A.I. All of this delivered in an epic series, paced faster than most novels, with twists and turns around almost every page, and a set of characters with whom you’ll fall in love.
Sounds good to me! I read through the books, feeling a strong connection to the characters, wishing at times some of the tech were real, and at others being very thankful that humanity is not quite there. While making my way through his stories, I contacted David — who happens to be an extremely friendly and personable guy — and set up an interview with him to discuss his projects and what’s in store for his writing career.
