He was short and shy. She was aloof, the woman in black.

Together they dared to challenge the corporation, IntelliGen, the people who stole Harrys brain. Robert Howard and Mona Grant are the only witnesses to the strange death of Harry Osborne, head of the university computer department. Harry had become the victim of his own research into Intelligence Emulation. Bob and Mona steal the security video tape which shows their friend getting jacked into one of the biggest computer systems in the country.

Killware is the story of the early days of the online community, where human intelligence is more than its 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. (killware.com) KillWare is an action exploration of some heavy philosophical notions. Is artificial intelligence possible? What is intelligence? Does it require a human component? Kragen translates his thoughts on these weighty matters into an almost Hollywood-style attention-getter. Pat Anderson, Bainbridge Review, Arts & Leisure. Hey, sure. I have no problem with fictional cameo appearances- ) Linus Torvalds, Father of LINUX
