Killware III, with K. D. Kragen
Join us in welcoming author K. D. Kragen as he introduces the third installment of his Killware Chronicles, Killware III: The Accidental Prisoner.
Killware is the story of the early days of the online community, where human intelligence is more than it's cracked up to be, PESD (post-virtual epistemic stress disorder) causes reality-disconnectedness and headaches, and the Bill of Rights takes on the brave-new-virtual-world of cyberspace. For a long moment before commercial industry, governments, and multi-national trans-national powers and principalities ruled e-space or vied for its territories, a new frontier lay before the connected common folk, the online little people, the techno-nobodies. This is their story.
In Killware III,the tension between life-extensionism and mortality is played out in many ways way: assisted dying, cryogenics, transhumanism. Can our memories be uploaded to a better vessel than a human body?
K. D. Kragen is a philosopher, writer, teacher, editor, husband, father, and grandfather. He began writing in college.
