Descripción de editorial
Have you ever seen someone facing a slow death and yet you can do nothing? Or the trade-off is so high its better to die? Enitan and Ikudoro face this plight in Wilson's terrifying novel 'Siege of Fate: A Sci-Fi Dystopia'.
In a near-future Africa, superstitions have become medical facts. Ikudoro is dying and even the best doctors cannot salvage her. Dr. Jason Crane comes up with a bizarre solution. The doctor claims he can upload a dying person’s mind into a durable, healthy robotic body thus keeping her alive.
Catch is the doctor won't explain how the process works. Additionally, Ikudoro must die a horrible death for the transformation to occur. That is, she must be mutilated and devoured by a series of automated spinning blades and interlocking teeth before her consciousness can be uploaded into the robot!
What will Enitan and Ikudoro eventually do? Siege of Fate is playfully serious, dancing naked with thick darkness while relentlessly satirizing pseudoscience and faith-based medicine. It will make you laugh at its absurdity, and leave you wondering about the location of your own consciousness. This novel is a must buy for anyone who picks it or comes across it.
