A native of Toronto, Aldous Mercer enjoys martinis and relaxing on the beac-ha! No.

Aldous Mercer is a workaholic with a penchant for numerical mind games and caffeinated beverages. He uses his degree in Engineering to ensure that none of the spaceships in his books have cubic pressure-vessels. In real life he always annotates Engineering Drawings in Iambic Tetrameter.

This is the newly edited, digitally remastered edition of first novel - all five parts in one.

Just thought I'd let you guys know...

“Fuck," he said. I couldn't have put it better myself.”
Aldous Mercer, The Prince and the Program

“And does Alan have a last name?" I asked.
"Probably," said Curtis, "but we have a 'if you have to ask, you don't need to know because I don't want to friend you on Facebook' policy.”
Aldous Mercer, The Prince and the Program

“That's the tragedy of creatures," I agreed. Mine too, if it comes to that. "We spend so long looking for our 'soulmates' or becoming 'one with our higher self'. But all this time the one true love has already happened. We don't remember because there was no mechanism to form a memory in the before-time, but we are its product."
(Mordred)”

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune

“Life is pain, highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.”
William Goldman, William Goldman: Four Screenplays with Essays

“What is he, twelve?"

"Fourteen."

"Well, no wonder, then. Hormones are raging! All you want to do when you're fourteen is snatch up a broadsword and hack something to pieces, then find a big rock and fuck it to death.”
Sarah Black, The General and the Horse-Lord

“I gave you all my secrets, and you lost them all. You lost a lot of things.

But the treasure of it was in the giving, not the keeping.”
Julio Alexi Genao, When You Were Pixels

“It struck Hsing suddenly that Masada didn't even understand the nature of his own genius. To him the patterns of thought and motive that he sensed in the virus were self-explanatory, and those who could not see them were simply not looking hard enough. Yet he would readily admit to his own inability to analyze more human contact, even on the most basic level. That was part and parcel of being iru.

What a strange combination of skills and flaws. What an utterly alien profile. Praise the founders of Guera for having taught them all to nurture such specialized talent, rather than seeking to "cure" it. It was little wonder that most innovations in technology now came from the Gueran colonies, and that Earth, who set such a strict standard of psychological "normalcy," now produced little that was truly exciting. Thank God their own ancestors had left that doomed planet before they, too, had lost the genes of wild genius. Thank God they had seen the creative holocaust coming, and escaped it.”
C.S. Friedman, This Alien Shore

Thanks, though I can take no credit for my covers. Anne deserves the recognition for those.
