About this title

Synopsis:

One of the best brain doctors of his time, Nathi lost his own brain five centuries ago when he became a posthuman. He is called upon to save a comatose girl. The damage is extensive, so he decides to map his own mind into her brain in order to replace the damaged part. But something unexpected waits for him within the Girl's brain. She is a carrier of a Wish Fairy, an enigmatic sentient cyber being whose only purpose is to kill the Wish, a virus used by the ruling cyber Wizard Orders to enslave all posthuman minds, including Nathi's. Liberated, Nathi forms a symbiotic union--"the Dancer"--with the Girl, discovers the true cause of her brain injury, and finds a way to break out of the Castle, their high-tech prison, and into the Martian polar night. But once outside, the real chase begins. They must resist the cyber wizards trying to remotely regain control of their minds, while also sending a force in pursuit. It is a battle that must be fought both in the physical world and that of the mind.

From the Back Cover:

"Pink Noise is daring in all the ways that science fiction is supposed to be daring. Not only is it great fun to read, filled with moments of touching grace and emotional power, but Pink Noise is also the most thorough-going exploration of the posthuman condition that I have read. Korogodski succeeds in giving us a very human story of loneliness and loves lost that's also a mind-bending exploration of all the ways that technology could change what it means to be human. He's raised the bar for the rest of us." --Karl Schroeder

"Pink Noise grabs you with the opening paragraph and doesn't let go until you've finished your roller-coaster ride through its fascinating world. Leonid Korogodski has crafted a riveting story in a fully realized future that is as alien as any you're likely to find." --Mike Resnick

"An exciting, terrifying rush of words, deftly combining hard science and poetic imagery. I don't know whether 'magnetorheological' is a word. If not, it should be!" --Joe Haldeman

"Leo Korogodski has written a suspenseful, imaginative thrill-ride that ranks with the best of New Wave science fiction... vivid prose, an intricate, intelligent plot and original, compelling characters make Pink Noise a genuine page-turner. He is a writer to watch." --Mark (James Axler) Ellis

"Pink Noise is a work of breath-taking scope and creativity... a must-read for every science fiction fan who wants to be challenged, entertained, frightened, and enlightened." --Melissa Martin Ellis

"A fascinating, thought-provoking, action-filled ride through a richly detailed universe such as you never imagined by a writer who is sure to make his mark on the genre." --James Stevens-Arce

"A vividly imagined adventure exploring the possibilities and the dark side of a post-Singularity world." --Kij Johnson
