Free Ebook, Two Days Only
Hello Hacker News, Github, Stack Overflow, and everyone else that’s sharing great ideas and good code!
Rather than blab on and on about how cool you all are, I’ll cut right to it: I’m making the ebook version of The Last Breath free (for October 12 & 13, 2016 only) as a way to say thanks.
I posted the message on HN because there isn’t an easier way to get to everybody on Github and Stack Overflow. But we’re all connected, right?
Can you help a brother out? Let’s see if we can set an Amazon record for sci-fi downloads in a 24 hour period. A big burst of downloads of my book from Amazon opens the door for other marketing opportunities. I’d really like to make a living at writing so I can keep doing it. Your help can make the difference.
One Code to Rule Them All. One Line to Bind Them.
Code remnants from a mass AI suicide.
Code auto-generated by the head-chopping, bullet-spraying, castle-building actions of players in the massive game called DireNight.
And, yes, code co-developed by self-selected programmers all over the world. All working toward a common goal: developing a free and open, kick-ass version of mind chips that will bring on the Human Singularity. (To hell with the AI version. We already blew that.)
Too bad the Decimals included a back door in their version of brain dust . . . and it looks like they’ll be first to market.
Too bad Lia Bellamy, the open source hero, got assassinated a few minutes ago.
Too bad our last chance rides on the shoulders of Matt Dunston. His mind is looping into nonsense and he can’t revert to a recent brain backup because there isn’t one. He’s one of those guys that thinks death exists for a reason.
If you like sci-fi, you might enjoy this novel. If you do, it would be great if you’d pass the word, or even leave a review on my Amazon book page.
I’d love to hear what you think: The Last Breath by Charlie Magee
