Resurrection Inc.: 25th Anniversary Edition

Author(s): Kevin J. Anderson

Sci-Fi & Fantasy

It is the future - and the dead walk the streets, resurrected by technology to become servants to the living. Resurrection, Inc. found a profitable way to do it: a microprocessor brain, a synthetic heart, artificial blood - and anyone with money could buy a Servant with no mind of its own, trained to obey any command. But for every Servant created, a living worker was out of a job, and suddenly the profits of Resurrection, Inc. became everyone else's loss. Danal is the last hope of the living. He is dead, but he remembers everything.

Product Information

Hopefully this fine first effort will refocus attention on a very productive vein."--Science Fiction Chronicle "Anderson sends out the various subplots to the four winds, but keeps control of them and brings them back together for the climax quite nicely. He's got a strong sense of dialog and character, and makes the world he's writing about come to life and mean something to you." --Other Realms "In every field of endeavor, good craftsmanship is to be recognized, appreciated, and held out as the standard for others in the field. Kevin J Anderson's Resurrection, Inc. is just such an accomplishment and merits our enthusiastic an
