Editorial Reviews

From the Author

In DEAD SHIFT, the third novel in my Rho Agenda Inception series, I set out to reveal the remaining portions of backstory for two important characters from my Rho Agenda trilogy, Jack "The Ripper" Gregory and Janet Alexandra Price.  In addition, I wanted to tie up several multi-book subplots that lead directly into The Rho Agenda trilogy and my upcoming follow-on Rho Agenda Assimilation series. 

One of the most important of these is the surprising discovery of the true origin of the alien passenger, Anchanchu, that threatens to break Jack's mind.  Since this being will become vital to the story yet to come, it was important to reveal its nature to you, the reader, as well as to Jack and, most surprisingly, to Anchanchu himself.

Finally, this is a tale of mankind's quest for artificial intelligence and the existential risks that quest poses for all of humanity.  In that regard, I credit Nick Bostrom and his wonderful book on the subject, "SUPERINTELLIGENCE: PATHS, DANGERS, STRATEGIES", for his many insights into the dangers and containment measures that need to be carefully considered prior to taking such an evolutionary forward leap.
