Book Description

Age Range: 12 years and up
Before he was Old-timer, he was Craig Emilson, a young doctor, sucked into military service at the outbreak of World War III. Enlisting to become a Special Forces suborbital paratrooper, Craig is selected to take part in the most important mission in American military history--a sortie into enemy territory to eliminate the world's first strong Artificial Intelligence. The mission is only the beginning of Craig's story, and for the story of humanity as well, as they accelerate towards a world that is post-human.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sub-Human September 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
David Simpson's books seem to grasp the reader and not let go. It is a very difficult book to put down as you keep wanting to know what happens next and you develop a sympathy for some of the characters, even the bad guys. I definitely recommend reading this book before reading "Post-Human" by the same author even though he wrote this book after "Post-Human". In any case, the author has a vivid imagination in creating a future world governed by computer control of nearly all things in human life. Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! and wow! September 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved these books. Loved them so much that I couldn't stop reading until I had read all three in the seriies in ONE day. I only wish there more books in the series. I would love to find out more about what happens with these people next . Another sleepless night reading more would be worth it.
At first glance these books are just great science fiction but on further thought, they are filled with questions that humanity has faced, will face or might face. Questions that will leave you thinking.

This book was super fun,I blasted through it in two sittings.

I'm not a good writer or critic so I wont go into prose and character definitions and othr things people that leave comments here go in to.I'll just say that I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next in the series,I definitely recommend this book.

The reasons I bought this book were,1,I read the description and it sounded like my kinda story and 2,it had lots of 5 star reviews.I've found I can generally trust my fellow sub human reviewers/commenters.

My two cents?It's a measly $2.99,money well spent,you wont regret it.

Alright future sub human,I'm off to become Post Human.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Reads like an action film happening in your head September 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book reads like an action film, say Terminator, Robo-Cop, Inception or even Matrix. In the best traditions of Heinlein's Starship Troopers, or Joe Haldeman's "Forever War", "Sub-Human" is absolutely amazing writing and I can tell you, if you enjoy action in your science fiction, you will love this. I could NOT put it down for a second. Basically, this is futuristic military sci-fi; an artificial intelligence enhanced soldier finds the world changed--and what can he believe, and why are his former platoon mates hunting him down?

I'm anxious to read the others in the series and best of all, the Kindle books are affordable and it's like INSTANT gratification. I don't want to give away a single spoiler. Just saying, if you liked any of the films I mentioned or authors, you will love this. I did! Big Thumbs UP!!!

Simpson starts the ball rolling right away with the first pages of Sub-Human, and he doesn't let up until we reach THE END. I won't give any spoilers, but this prequel to his popular other novels (Post-Human and Trans-Human) goes a long way in explaining the world he has created. He takes a typical super-hero type story (the rebuilding of someone injured into a technological marvel) and gives us a treat. It's an action-packed narrative full of cyborgs, global warfare, robots, and even time travel. Again, we're talking super-hero fiction from within the umbrella of transhuman discourse. He doesn't preach and he doesn't lean toward didacticism. It's all fun. I should say that I read an ARC, so I am sure this final product is worth the three bucks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast read. April 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed the mix of sci-fi with romance, action, realism and battle. One reviewer gave it one star because she said the author was atheist. I disagree strongly with that opinion as the hero in the book was always trying to do good acts and had good morals. I definitely do not care about the author's religious affiliation and I don't think this book has anything to do with that. I enjoyed the quality of the writing and the imaginative story line and the character development.
