Deus X

by Norman Spinrad
Release date: 1993
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fictioncyberpunk

In the tradition of Blade Runner and stories like Philip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep," acclaimed science-fiction author Norman Spinrad explores the depths of what it means to be human; more accurately, he delves into the nature of the soul in our increasingly computerized technological age. Featuring a poignant new Afterword by Spinrad, this reprinting of one of Spinrad's most cherished works is more timely than ever before. Can human consciousness exist within the framework of an electronic "brain" and still maintain its humanity?

In DEUS X, a dying priest's consciousness is uploaded into the most advanced computer of the day – and what ensues is a thought-provoking, entertaining and overly intriguing clash between the various characters surrounding the experiment, a female Pope and a computer guru who'd rather be sailing and smoking pot, for example.
