We Found Paradise. Now What?

Student Paul Kostakis has caught the attention of Ludo, an Artificial Intelligence obsessed with games and stories. In return for a few little favors, she's offering "brain uploading". She can fatally dice your brain, scan it, and recreate you in a virtual-reality heaven she controls. You can do anything in there: become a griffin, upgrade your mind, fall in love, or go mad.

When Paul accepts Ludo's offer, sooner than he would've liked, he learns that people can find real problems even in a digital world. One of them is that Ludo has powerful opponents who want to shut her down, bring death to her immortal people, and end her game forever.

About the Author:

Kris Schnee has wandered the tunnels beneath MIT as a student there, helped train the world's most over-educated parrots, studied hacking, dabbled in AI, and turned away from practicing law to work in computer science in Florida. "Thousand Tales" is his third published novel. His first is "Everyone's Island", about the rise of a tiny seastead settlement called Castor, not quite in the same continuity as this book. The second is "Striking the Root", a fantasy story about the servant of a self-made god.
