Chapter 2: Book Notes with Grant Perrigo
Librarian Grant Perrigo, a member of the Sno-Isle Libraries Readers’ Services team, shares a couple of suggestions for our podcast listeners.
Martin is just a regular computer programmer who stumbles across a computer text file that controls all human existence. Height, weight, wealth, position on the planet, or in time can be changed with a simple keystroke. Presented with this ethical and moral quandary, Martin finds himself on the wrong side of the law and does what any self-respecting nerd would do. He travels back in time to England in the middle ages, to try is trade at being a real wizard.
This graphic novel by the author of Sweet Tooth and Animal Man is a fantastic example of sci-fi world building. Robots and Humans (and Aliens) are locked in a war, and the key to solving it might be a small boy android. With elements of the film AI and parts of the graphic novel Saga by Brian K Vaughan, this recently completed series will appeal to fans of both.
