Book Description

“Death before immortality!”

In this cyber-noir Private Detective Harry Tidbit is hired to save the State from terrorist attacks when he learns that his employers have plans to kill him, along with an entire generation of new immortals.

With help from an emergent intelligence, Harry repels the assaults, and perfects mind upload as a cure for his brother's terminal illness. But when competing factions vie to claim his discovery, Harry becomes their prime target.

“Immortality Wars” paints a wicked portrait of the near-future, one where technology’s goals require wars to bring them to creation. In this world human ingenuity is a saving grace, and immortality is not necessarily forever.

"'Immortality Wars' is a riveting and provocative journey into a frightening but plausible future." -- Michael Berger, co-founder of Nanowerk.com, a leading nanotechnology information portal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Film noir-esque future June 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The story evolves around a slightly cynical private eye with special mental capacities and is set in dystopian future dominated by biotechnology and corporations. In its setting and description a projected history of the early and mid 21st century unfolds the background. The book follow the footsteps of a hard boiled crimestory of the 1940ies. Similar to most S-F the book embedded perceived critics of contemporary society, characters have a believable motivation and appear genuinely fitting the ambience set by the book. I personalyl dislik story-lines involving some sort of telepathy. In immortality wars mind reading is introduced in a scientific manner on an industrial scale, which shapes the fate of the gifted private eye and the story line.

For those interested in crime-stories, biotechnological enhanced cyperpunkish- let call it streamline-punk-story it is definitely worthwhile reading. Shortcomings involve the sometimes stereotypical setting of a future dysfunctional society, which simply echo social dicontents of the year 2012. As I haven't finished the book complete I am unable to comment on the end of the book.

Joe received his first EMMY award for the documentary "Metaphoria" broadcast in the US on PBS in 1991.

Joe's humor book, "The Official Alien Abductee's Handbook", was published by Andrews and McMeel in 1997. Author and Futurist Robert Anton Wilson called it: "The funniest book I've read since the Warren Report." Famed scientist John C.

"Immortality Wars" a SF novel about the abuses of technology in a world of competing interests.

Joe spends his time between New York and Brazil with his wife and two daughters.
