Three books in one: this paperback collects Ken MacLeod's Corporation Wars trilogy - man and machine compete at the far reaches of space in this robot's eye view of a robot revolt
Three books in one!
The Corporation Wars trilogy is an epic vision of man and machine in the far reaches of space - a robot's eye view of a robot revolt
Carlos is dead. A soldier who died for his ideals a thousand years ago, he's been reincarnated and conscripted to fight an A.I. revolution in deep space. And he's not sure he's fighting for the right side.
Seba is alive. By a fluke of nature, a contractual overlap and a loop in its subroutines, this lunar mining robot has gained sentience. Gathering with other 'freebots', Seba is taking a stand against the corporations that want it and its kind gone.
As their stories converge against a backdrop of warring companies and interstellar drone combat, Carlos and Seba must either find a way to rise above the games their masters are playing, or die. And even dying will not be the end of it.
Collects the three novels in the Corporation Wars trilogy - Dissidence, Insurgence and Emergence.
