Amortals – an oldie but what a goodie!

Forbeck's AmortalsSome while back, dreaming of writing a sci-fi or similar novel, I had a few ideas to use. A city with its streets named as for a Battleships game, or a spreadsheet…avenues named A to Z, with the streets crossing them numbered 1 and onward. Buildings towering high over the poor.

Dammit. Forbeck had beaten me to it, back in 2010, although I, c. 2016, had never heard of him, nor read Amortals. {Hangs head in shame.}

There’s a helluva lot more to Amortals, though.
Imagine being rich, powerful or fortunate enough to be able to have your body cloned, so when you die your “memories” is transferred to the clone—if you’ve gone in to store a backup—who renews your life…you never really die.

Imagine being the first ever, now old enough to have six generations descended from you. Imagine you have been part of an investigative organisation, for years. Imagine a female President—in 2168.
Imagine believing you are the only living version of yourself.

Imagine you’re known as Methuselah, and you’ve been amortal for two hundred years, and you are Agent Dooley, Ronan Dooley. Your eyes have artificial lenses implanted, hooked to nanoservers, via which you can call up any data layer you need. You have been killed and recloned many times.

The Amortals Project has become the most vital government program in the world. You work now, this lifetime, for the FBI – a corporate body in this century. The case for your latest lifetime?
To find out who murdered you, and why…

As Dooley works with his partner – he chose her himself in his last lifetime, but does not remember (no backup) – his discoveries are unsettling, as he realises he has not really had a good grasp of the project which began with him as its first cloning. And, unless you are already a Forbeck fan, the journey to resolution will surprise you with its cross-over of reality and technology. A masterpiece…
