Book Description

The future should have been perfect. Microscopic robots known as nans could repair any damage to your body, keep you young by resetting your cellular clocks, and allow you to download upgrades like intelligence, muscle strength, and eyesight. You were supposed to be able to have anything you wanted with a simple thought, to be able to fly without the aid of a machine, to be able to live forever. But when a small group of five terraformers working on Venus return to Earth, they discover that every other human in the solar system has been gruesomely murdered. Now, James Keats and his four companions must discover what happened to the rest of humanity and fight back if they wish to avoid the same, horrifying fate. Welcome to the post-human era.

"Post-Human, a noteworthy sci-fi novel." -Examiner.com

About the Author

Amazon, just like the University of Toronto's Academic Bridging program, gave me the opportunity I needed to prove myself. Because of them, a runaway who had to sleep in a shopping cart at sixteen, a high-school dropout with seemingly no prospects, went on to live in the best city in the world, meet the best woman in the world and marry her, attain two degrees from one of the top forty universities in the world, before achieving his dream of being a full-time author and having one of the best-selling science fiction series in the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Read for Fans of Sci-Fi February 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I judge my science fiction based upon a modified version of the Baen criteria, and for this one I was looking at is the technology something I can understand, is the storyline plausible (especially in light of the technology), and was it an overall good read. I think Mr. Simpson hits it on those fronts, and he must have done a pretty good job as I have thought about this book for several days after reading it - considering the number of books I read on a monthly basis, that is impressive (to me, at least) as I may already be on my 4th or 5th book since reading this one. Without having a spoiler, this one really focuses in on the technology of the future and doesn't have the shoot `em up aspects of humans vs. aliens that many people enjoy.

As I type this review, the Kindle price is just 99 cents - you're going to get a lot more than that in value. If you like science fiction, I would highly recommend this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and fast paced May 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When reviewing a book, one must look to what the book was supposed to be. This was not a novel in which the author wants to educate us on the technical aspects of nano technology. As far as I know, it's still science fiction and thus the author can use whatever ideas pop into his head. I see too many people being critical for grammar and word choices. Hundreds or even thousands of years into the future, who knows what words we will be using, or what words will have changed meaning.

What this book was... was entertaining. It was a fast paced science fiction novel with characters that run the gambit of human flaws and strengths. Without spoiling it, the few main characters can be cowardly or brave, intelligent or stupid. You feel for the people and fear for their nearly impossible situation they find themselves in.

Some of the science behind it is not explained and it seems as if this novel is part super hero novel, part Matrix. But it is all fun. If you are looking to be entertained and lose yourself in a future we will probably only dream of, read this. It's fun. Easy to read straight through. Suspend disbelief and just enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking Sci-Fi Ride March 10, 2012
By jmk444
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book by David Simpson I read and it's excellent! I subsequently read its sequel Trans-Human (also excellent). These novels are set in the period when mankind has already reached the stage that Ray Kurzweil calls "the Singularity," where artificial intelligence far outstrips that of its human makers.

And it's seemingly a world of ceaseless wonder, peace and plenty, where nanobots are injected into the body to maintain youthful effectiveness (making people virtually ageless), allowing humans to fly via implants in their spines and to transport themselves seemingly effortlessly across great distances, even on inter-planetary trips.

But something goes awry. The giant super-computer that controls all of this, begins to see humans as insignificant insects that are more hindrance than help...and it immediately decides what must be done - it takes out "the grid" that sustains all modern life.

James Keats and four fellow researchers are spared only because they were temporarily separated from the grid...along with "the purists" a group of humans who continued to live naturally off the grid, without benefit of the AI and its nanotechnology. The rest of the story is a wildly imaginative struggle of man against machine that ultimately brings the post-humans and the purists to a better understanding and even a begrudging respect for one another....I'm not a major sci-fi reader (I think the last Sci-fi book I read was Herbert's "The White Plague") but these two books are excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Post-Human - Well worth the time.... May 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just finished this book (Post-Human), and I gotta say, this was a great book! It moved quickly, none of what I call "dead spots" and had great action! The characters were believable, interesting, and well designed. The description of the technology involved was well-enough done that you could understand and accept it as possible. I STRONGLY recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a great scifi yarn! I look forward to more in the Trans-Human series and hope to see much more from this author! I easily place him on par with Travis S. Taylor, John Ringo and David Weber. As a young author, he can only get better and better. Go get 'em, David!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and entertaining and thought provoking Sci-Fi November 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
David Simpson creates a fascinating picture of the future in his first novel. Which in some respects seems like a possibility in our ever changing technological world. Simpson creates a very insightful story that examines the possible dangers of a Post-humanistic world and crafts a very enjoyable story around this premise. The characters are great and the adventure is fun to read! I have read 2/3 of his novels and I am looking forward to more thought provoking and enjoyable reading experiences from this exciting new author!

In this book the vast majority of humanity lives with nano-bots and cybernetic implants. This far future science fiction is a wild ride through a high technology society where everyone can fly and the government is computer controlled. When a routine upgrade affects almost the entire population of earth and machines turn on their creators we get an interesting mix of apocalypse and human ingenuity and cunning. Along with a few M. Night Shyamalan'esq twists it makes for a fun jaunt into sci-fi.
