Book Description

In a harrowing tale of scientific experimentation on the fringe of possibility, author JH Glaze takes you into the depths of the Hawks Mountain Defense Development facility. There you will bear witness to the culmination of years of work as scientific researchers Alex Conner and Donna Shafer initialize the final stage of their intelligence enhancement project. Unknown to them, while preparing the test subject for the experiment, negligence of a lab assistant sets them on a course to disastrous confrontation.

As the clock ticks, the facility goes into lockdown. All communications with the outside world have been severed, and the military is contemplating total sterilization of the facility to avoid a catastrophic contamination of the surrounding area.

With the help of an unlikely ally, the scientists race against all odds in an attempt to stop the military and survive the ordeal before their time and luck runs out.

Editorial Reviews


 "Short, but powerful, a book that should have meaning to us all and, frighteningly, is not far-fetched."  -  On Top Down Under Book Reviews

"Terrifying truths, a dollop of irony and a laugh or two are only some of the elements that make up this quick read. No matter what your genre preference, "Forced Intelligence" will undoubtedly have an impact on the reader in some way or another."  - Books 4 Tomorrow

From the Author

One day I overheard a boy telling about a dream he'd had the night before. His dog could talk, he said. That was all it took. Bam! The story of Forced Intelligence was born full length in my imagination. All I had to do was sit down at my computer and let it out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Idea Poorly Executed February 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story had great potential, but it was not interesting and I had a difficult time finishing it. I figured out how it was going to end early on and was a bit disappointed that there was no surprise ending. The characters were not believable. I understand that a short story doesn't leave much room for character development, but I expect the characters to be relatable. Also, the whole brain switch thing didn't make a lot of sense. When the humans got the animal brains, they just sat around with drool coming out of their mouths? Really? Animals wouldn't survive if they were that stupid.

Warning: This story feels like animal rights propaganda. Personally, I think that humans should be ethical in their treatment of animals, but I like to know when I'm reading a story and when some one wants to push their propaganda. I guess all literature carries the writer's views, but the really good writers invite their readers to think rather than trying to force their ideas.

Overall, a bland story.

3.0 out of 5 stars just didn't ring true for me March 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although this was an interesting read, the whole mechanism of how the experimental animals gained intelligence and the ability to talk (from rats and rabbits to orangs and chimps) and most of the humans appeared to switch brains with the rodents (lost intelligence) didn't really fly for me. I made it through the whole thing, but the ending wasn't what I expected (sigh), and I deleted it from my kindle as something I wouldn't recommend to anyone else or read again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes I cried!!! October 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm still here sitting shaking my head as I write this review... JH Glaze has once again left me stunned by the way his brain is so unstoppable!!!

Forced Intelligence will have you spinning your thoughts around as you are thrown into the world of a "genius" (the science) .... Sure it is highly possible, ok yes most likely that experiments just like these do happen, it doesn't help put my mind at ease at all!!! The opposite in fact.

The ending was one that I didn't see coming at all, makes me wonder if things had turned out differently, where would we be in the world, of intelligence?
YES, I actually cried at the ending, no it can't end this way, oh my gosh, and wow were a few of my thoughts, I was so taken back.

Still baffled and rattled with this phenomenal story, but it's still a MUST READ. I will warn you though, you will be spinning in circles just like I was as you try to think this one through with all the possibilities that could be actually happening around us, or behind closed doors in this case.

Forced Intelligence is definitely a dark and daunting read, it will have you second guessing the things we "think" are to be true in the world of science.

1. Nerve rattling - Yes
2. Possible - Yes
3. Entertaining - Yes
4. Scary - Yes
5. Twisted - Yes
6. Sad - Yes
And this list could go on and on...

It's a exceptional read, one that could have had a couple of very different endings. Jeff picked this ending,,, Which one would you or I pick?

Recommend: 16 and up
Rating: 5/5 angel stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Tables are turned April 16, 2013
By Dorothy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just finished this short story and I am in awe of the author. He has managed to show us a side of what could, and probably is, happening in life. Humans, usually scientists, use all sorts of animals in experiments never taking into thought how these animals feel. This book shows how they feel and much, much more. The author manages to show their feeling clearly, concisely. You come away from reading the book in awe of what you have just read.

This book is a novella sized book, so it is a fast read. You open to the Hawks Mountain Defense Development Facility. Here, years of work by Alex Connor and Donna Schafer are coming to the final stage. Then, the result of a negligent lab assistant, the facility ends up in lock down and the military is thinking of sterilizing the facility. What happens from here is with surprising help.

This book is full of suspence, intrigue, and awakening. I recommend it very much. In fact, I think it would make a good gift to anyone you know.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short, Quick and Generally Okay March 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Got this as a freebie, so not completely disappointed in it. The writing was good, from a grammatical standpoint. The plot itself really interested me, but was handled rather poorly. I felt as it it were more being played for laughs rather than horror. Perhaps a longer story, slightly more realistic results and a better ending would have resulted in a higher rating. For free? Not too bad. I, however, wouldn't have paid for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fear Factor J H Glaze Style! September 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Can you say SCARY!?! This short story was a very good read but definitely rattled my nerves, because it seems like something that could actually happen somewhere. I'd have to say that it raises suspicion & fear of "classified" information that I don't soon care to witness first hand! Whose side would you be on? J H Glaze sure knows how to bring on the fear factor!! ;*}
