Blurb – Jacket Flap
The Earth 400 years from now is a rotten society in which mankind is doomed to die out and the only solution to the problem seems to be an ultra-intelligent computer to govern humanity. The result is a corrupt society turned into a world where there is no corruption, because Mother Machine knows what’s best for her children and does it, where that same all-powerful computer is rapidly turning men into zombies. The world’s only hope turns out to be one outlawed man of seemingly average intelligence, but with an incredible I.Q. potential.

This English author is already well established through his recently published novels, Twin Planets, These Savage Futurians, and The Time Mercenaries.

Blurb – Page One
Given: Earth 400 years from now – a rotten society in which mankind is doomed to die out.

A solution to the problem – an ultra-intelligent computer to govern humanity.

One man of seemingly average intelligence, but with an incredible I.Q. potential.

And you have: A corrupt society turned into a world where there is no corruption, because Mother Machine knows what’s best for her human children and does it. Where that same all-powerful is rapidly turning men into zombies.

And where the world’s only hope turns out to be one outlawed not-average man.

Result: An unusual science-fiction thriller.
