About this author

Amazon, just like the University of Toronto’s Academic Bridging program, gave me the opportunity I needed to prove myself. Because of them, a runaway who had to sleep in a shopping cart at sixteen, a high-school dropout with seemingly no prospects, went on to live in the best city in the world, meet the best woman in the world and marry her, attain two degrees from one of the top forty universities in the world, before achieving his dream of being a full-time author and having one of the best-selling science fiction series in the world.

Podcast! One of my readers from Chile, my friend Leo, asked me to participate in his first ever English podcast (they usually record in Spanish) and I enjoyed it immensely. The Post-Human series definitely has a global reach!) The interviewwas fun and light but they asked all the questions you'd want me to answer in the more than one hour long chat. If that sounds like a fun listen to you (and... Read more of this blog post »

Sub-Human (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 03, 2012 08:23PM
Description: Before he was Old-timer, he was Craig Emilson, a young doctor, sucked into military service at the outbreak of World War III. Enlisting to become a Special Forces suborbital paratrooper, Craig is selected to take part in the most important mission in American military history—a sortie into enemy territory to eliminate the world's first strong Artificial Intelligence. The mission is only the beginning of Craig's story, and for the story of humanity as well, as they accelerate towards a world that is post-human.
Post-Human (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Apr 17, 2012 08:26PM
Description: The future should have been perfect. Microscopic robots known as nans could repair any damage to your body, keep you young by resetting your cellular clocks, and allow you to download upgrades like intelligence, muscle strength, and eyesight. You were supposed to be able to have anything you wanted with a simple thought, to be able to fly without the aid of a machine, to be able to live forever. But when a small group of five terraformers working on Venus return to Earth, they discover that every other human in the solar system has been gruesomely murdered. Now, James Keats and his four companions must discover what happened to the rest of humanity and fight back if they wish to avoid the same, horrifying fate. Welcome to the post-human era.
Trans-Human (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 15, 2011 03:17PM
Description: In this sequel to Post-Human, humanity will be forced to face a future more advanced than it could have imagined if it wants to survive. Nineteen months have passed since the AI turned against humanity and was subsequently destroyed. In the meantime, James Keats has turned over the AI's powers to a non-intelligent, easily controlled operating system. He and Thel have left the planet and spent six months vacationing on Venus, which has been newly terraformed without the consent or knowledge of the Governing Council. The AI has been deleted, but the message it sent out into the abyss of space in search of a companion has been answered. An alien force dwarfing the Earth is on its way to find out why the AI has stopped communicating. Keats and company can only assume its intentions will be hostile when it finds out the truth. Only one thing is for sure: nothing will ever be the same again. Welcome to the Trans-Human era. Welcome to the singularity.

“I don’t know what the hell that freak just said, but we’re not as backward as you cyborgs think! We know how to speak English!” The tableau continued a moment longer before Old-timer finally managed to utter, “You do?” “No! I’m lying to you! I don’t speak a damn word of English! I memorized this phonetically just to piss you off at the right moment!” the Purist shouted back at him.”

Jesse Hanson Hi David, I very much appreciate being included among your friends here on Goodreads. Wishing you all the best. Seems as if you're already doing quite well with your novels; congratulations.
Hope you won't mind my asking you to consider my spiritual allegory, Song of George: Portrait of an Unlikely Holy Man for your reading list. It's fiction but is inspired by events from my life. Namaste, jesse

Ali hello david! Thanks for the friend invite!
i hope to be good friends.


 ♥♥Mari♥♥ Hi, there! Thanks for the friend request! I already signed up on Facebook, and got your wife's message. However, I would prefer a hard copy of the book, if you have any. If not, I'll take the e-book. I can always buy a hard copy later on.

You see, I much prefer REAL books to the electronic kind. So I do hope you're giving away hard copies of your book. How about posting it on the giveaway section of Goodreads?

I LOVE SCIENCE FICTION!!!!


Joanna What an Amazing book, please write a sequel. :)


Shalonda Williams Thank you for the invitation. Glad to be friends.
