We are not alone, and it’s our own damn fault.
Edward M. Lerner is pleased to announce the mass-market re-release of his 2008 cyber-thriller, Fools’ Experiments.
Something far nastier than any virus, worm, or Trojan horse program is evolving in laboratory confinement. When an artificial life-form escapes onto the Internet, no computer is safe.
As the world’s technological infrastructure is plunged into chaos, with planes colliding in mid-air and floodgates literally opening, computer scientist Doug Carey realizes that unconventional measures may be civilization’s last hope.
And that any artificial life-form learns very fast…
“When the artificial intelligences … go maverick, they turn out to be the true weapons of mass destruction. A fast, fun read.”

If you think the viruses we’ve seen so far are annoying and destructive, wait until you see what Lerner has imagined.”
