Why Godsent?

Prior to the filming of The Matrix, Keanu Reeves was required to read three books before he even saw the script. One of those was by Jean Baudrillard and another from the internationally acclaimed Introducing... series.


Now, in GODSENT, a contributor to several books from the same series, and co-author of Introducing Baudrillard, who has also had rare personal access to the great cultural theorist, has taken simulacra to reality.


In this fast-paced SF novel, he combines fresh futuristic notions with original concepts of digitised afterlife and reconstructed psyche to bring us to a brand-new evolutionary stage.




In a post-crash, rebooted world, Eugene Reece is one of the billions of pre-indebted citizens whose lives are augmented by the virtualized intellects of the deceased. If anything, his stats tag him average, though a notch more disillusioned and a degree less spirited than the next, permanently connected individual. The tedium of Eugene‘s drudge is forever broken during one of his habitual visits to Soho and a too-good-to-pass offer of beta-testing a personal entertainment clone. This results in expensive and fatal biological damage and, although accidental, his indecipherable crime earns him the attentions of the anti-terror agency, subjection to unimaginable torture, and untimely physical death.


And that is when his story really begins...

The Next Step


"Fast-paced, exploratory and often humorous, the novel features a multitude of original technological concepts, fresh philosophical and evolutionary notions, as well as plenty of physical, supra-physical and intellectual action.


However, GODSENT is not a light read by any means – apart from elements of light gore and sex, the story employs elaborations on current and alternative theories, technical and internet terminology, as well as its own required jargon. Underpinned by watertight science, solid imagination, and meticulous attention to detail, the narrative delivers a distinctive voyage towards the next Sci-Fi thought."
