The Terminal Experiment
by Robert J. Sawyer
"Blends high-tech mystery with a cutting-edge-future . . . This book matters." Nancy Kress, Hugo Award-winning author of Beggars in Spain
IT STARTED AS AN EXPERIMENT IN LIFE AFTER DEATH.
IT ENDED IN DEATH.
Dr. Peter Hobson has created a monster. Three of them, in fact.
In order to test his theories of immortality and life after death, he has created three electronic simulations of his own personality.
The first Hobson has all memory of physical existence edited out. It will simulate life after death.
The second Hobson is without knowledge of aging or death. It will simulate immortality.
The third Hobson is unmodified. A control.
But now all three of them have escaped from Hobson's computer into the worldwide electronic matrix.
And one of them is a killer . . .
"Shows why Robert Sawyer has catapulted to the top rank of science fiction writers. It's his best novel yet, and should be a definite contender for all the major awards." Mike Resnick, author of Purgatory
