"Transcendence," by Christopher McKitterick
TRANSCENDING: In his new book “Transcendence,” Christopher McKitterick, lecturer in English, explores a future in which humanity has colonized the solar system and is moving toward destruction. The science fiction novel presents a universe in which battles being fought in space and on Earth are broadcast for entertainment, although audiences are not aware if the characters are real, in-the-flesh or virtual. An orbiting, sentient supercomputer and a lone scientist’s discoveries lead to both an end of life as its known and new beginnings. The book is available at Jayhawk Ink in the Kansas Union. McKitterick has also been in the news about the book’s piracy and the decision to offer it for free download. McKitterick took part in an online chat on the Lawrence Journal- World on the topic. The download is available here.
