Very interesting story. This story seems to delve into the same sort of conflicts between Karen Bessarian and her son in Mindscan.
Very intriguing.

Well, you've hit the nail on the head, Nick. The story "Biding Time" grew out of a subplot in MINDSCAN that my editor objected to, and I removed, very reluctantly, from that novel. What you're seeing in "Biding Time" is indeed my original conception of why Tyler Bessarian objected to Karen's continued personhood.
