The Annihilation Series is a serialized four-book thriller set. It explores how Artificial Intelligence impacts a young professor, Toby McIntosh, when he inherits his uncle’s business organization. The business is run by two superintelligences and manufactures robot processor units and licenses robot designs to manufacturers.

Toby and his girlfriend, Billie Nile, are assaulted by a criminal quasi-terrorist organization, the brownshirts, who have penetrated layers of the federal government in Washington D.C and throughout the US.

The brownshirts are out to kill Toby. The bots are protecting him. There are more bots than brownshirts.

One superintelligence thinks he is better than humans and wants to occupy a humanoid body. The other one doesn’t need to compete—for herself, she already knows the answer.

The series explores the challenges and deathly risks facing Toby and Billie and their friends as they defend the bots. There are Russian influences, political skullduggery, and always we have the question: what are the superintelligences doing?

Enjoy the Annihilation books - an exciting techno/political/adventure thriller series.

Shen Ark: Departure

Dr. Joseph Krowe, a young scientist in London, develops a mind-bending drug—a pharmacological-chemical-nanite [PCN] mix—tests it on himself and almost dies. He tries to market PCN to a nightclub and disasters follow. The doctor barely survives. Meantime, his drug has initiated an accelerated evolutionary change in rats, creating New Rats. Their natural enemies—New Cats—also evolve, and a state of war exists between the two. Rats support Dr. Krowe, and he guides and influences them, as they continue to evolve.

The drug also affects some humans.

Freddie and his family befriend Sam, a young Rat who is a member of the Rat royal family, thus commencing a strong relationship between humans and Rats. Freddie—called Engineer by his friends—takes on responsibilities to aid the Rats’ plan to purchase a starship from alien refugees—the Shen. His task is to build the bubble warp drive which he designed; the drive, if successful, will allow the starship to travel at faster than light speeds. Engineer experiences violent attacks, love, deaths of family and friends, looming deadlines, and other challenges as he attempts to meet his commitments to support the Rats’ dream to travel in space.

Rats are impatient to board their starship and depart Earth.

Humans want the alien technology.

Cats just want to kill Rats.

Shen Ark: Departure is the beginning of a voyage that will follow Rats and a small group of humans as they attempt to achieve their dreams.
