Ed Eats a Pork Pie
Ed, a former police officer, was set up for a crime he did not commit. Now released from prison, he is down and out until he finds a job through serendipitous circumstances, leading him to rediscover trust in his intuition. As part of his new employment, he is led down a path of intrigue as he attempts to get his old life and job back. Ed discovers that a company called Quantum Futures is experimenting with people’s consciousness and wants to learn more about what is actually happening. Volunteering as a test subject to be experimented upon, he starts to build theories about the company’s intriguing plans to explore the atomic connections between the quantum computer and the human brain.

Reading like a first rate spy novel this well written book folds in modern quantum theory and its putative ties to consciousness. A splendid read!

Here, I’m just about to have a very belated breakfast of sourdough and marmite – an Ed breakfast as I recall. A great story by the way, very nicely modulated with very good action sequences interleaved with the provocative and the contemplative scenes. On which, I liked the local library (or, rather, I didn’t) with only a few books on the shelves and those largely about fact-checking websites. It had a Gibsonesque feel to it, like when he first integrated cyberspace and, later, 3D printing into the life-worlds of all his characters. Altogether, the book is what we used to call a rollicking read. Congratulations are in order!

The Guessing Game. This creative savvy tale of an A-grade-ex-jailbird-cop’s quantum adventures in determining his future, is not the kind of book you’d dare call a ‘page turner’, but it’s that as well; part of the anticipation and revelation that characterise the unsuspected, and make this a surprising read.
