Skynet meets The Matrix in two novels from New York Times bestselling author and legendary science fiction storyteller, James Hogan.
Contains Two Faces of Tomorrow and Real Time Interrupt. Two Faces of Tomorrow: Midway through the 21st century, a proposed major software upgrade - an artificial intelligence - will give the world communications system an unprecedented degree of independent decision-making. Now to fully assess the system, a new space-station habitat is deployed with an A.I. named Spartacus. The idea is that if Spartacus gets out of hand, the system can be shut down and the station destroyed - unless, that is, Spartacus decides to take matters into its own hands and take the fight to Earth! Realtime Interrupt: Joe Corrigan awakens in a hospital to find that his life no longer exists. As director of the supersecret Oz Project, his job was to create a computerized environment virtually indistinguishable from reality. Oz failed. Now, left alone to pick up the pieces of his shattered life, Joe finds himself in an unfamiliar world - a world where nothing is quite as it should be.
