Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

A few years from now a new life form will awaken, created not by God or by man but by a fusion of emerging technologies which may spell the end of humankind as we know it. And if it does, who's to blame, Nissy the omniscient quantum computer, Jason Godwin its genius architect, Blake Lipinski developer of the bioprinter that sequenced its DNA into life or man's insatiable fascination with playing God, bringing artificial life into existence? With the world hanging on the brink of devastation, only a young girl named Amy, Jason’s adopted daughter, has a chance to right what he neglected in his design. Although this riveting and suspenseful tale of technology untamed is fiction, it's not about if, but when, it will come to pass. Prepare to meet NISSY.

“It’s All About Plot, Characterization, And Good Storytelling”

Jason Godwin’s work on artificial intelligence is reaching omniscient power; he names his computer NISSY for that purpose. But there are still some things needed to complete the process, and Godwin brings in Blake Lipinski, a DNA specialist to help. With the added boost to NISSY’s power, the machine begins to think it is a god, and wants to rule mankind. And its power is capable of accomplishing that feat. Mankind’s future looks bleak.

It’s all about plot, characterization, and good storytelling. The characters come alive in this fast-paced novel. The writing is smooth, and the pace flows, never letting up. The science is real, and the possibilities of computer science and artificial intelligence advancing to the level of this novel is not far in the future. Not since Colossus: The Forbin Project and War Games has computer technology combined with AI this powerful been drawn to our imagination. A prophetic novel everyone should read. Plus, it is darn good entertainment. Highly recommended.
