In Makr's Shadow - Book One: Symbiosis

Like Isaac Asimov and Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. combined. Thought-provoking. Exciting. Sentient cyberts co-exist with Bios. Ninety percent of the Bios live in a fantasy world Inside, ten percent live in the dark reality Outside. One percent of the ten percent are fighting a losing war with the artificial intelligent menace running the planet. Is this the end of the world or the beginning of a new one?"In Makr's Shadow" (formerly Harry's Reality), humans now called Bios could only fail. Harry Bolls and his new found friends make a difference. Harry Bolls sees through illusion and dreams of truth. The worlds of reality, fantasy and Cyber will never be the same. Had the human race rebelled or unified in some way there might have been hope. Now, saving the world rests on a pampered and helpless people who can hardly survive Outside the fantasy world created by the artificial intelligence in charge. Outside, society has splintered. One group wants to co-exist, another wants to be left alone, and one group even worships the artificial intelligence as a god. Harry, the Insider, can see through SensaVision illusions, and has nightmares in a world where that is supposed to be impossible. Is he the one to change the world?What will the world become?"In Makr's Shadow" reads like an Isaac Asimov and Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. novel combining, action, suspense and fun. Thought-provoking. Exciting. Shaw's characters are dynamic and real. They are as flawed as humanity with fears, anger, regret and arrogance, yet heroes emerge. All that seems lost, is not lost.
