it was amazing

Emerging from the ashes of cyberpunk, Richard K. Morgan hit the scene with ALTERED CARBON, which won the Philip K. Dick award in 2003. WOKEN FURIES is a continuation of the exploits of ALTERED CARBON‘s (and sequel BROKEN ANGELS‘) noir protagonist Takeshi Kovacs.

Neurologically trained by the government to be part of an elite squad of infiltrators and insurgents, Kovacs is man a half-step away from humanity who is able to observe the brutal cycle of human nature with a sneer and, at the same time, hope that this time, things will be different.

The twist is this: In Kovacs’ universe, every human being has a chip implanted in his or her spine that contains their consciousness; as long as this “cortical stack” is intact, a person’s consciousness can survive death itself and be “reseleeved” in a fresh body.
