I won an ARC of this book in a goodreads giveaway.

What first caught my eye for this book was The Gift of Fire's mentioning of Prometheus because I have been submerging myself in mythology books. However, it was not at all what I expected, both of the short novels were very thought provoking and make you think about a hire being or whether or not there is other life out there. I don't care who you are or what you believe but this book will make you think and ponder such things as existence on hire planes or the coming of gods and how this effects the way you live. I was enraptured and truly enjoyed it even though I didn't think I would. Bravo, Walter Mosley, bravo.

Playing around with computer graphics they create a being that holds all the memories of mankind and Josh meets an Alto a genetically made "perfect" human. Intriguing now on to Prometheus ...."
