We continue sampling from the stories found in the book, Avatars of Websurfer. This compilation of stories by authors Andrea J. Graham (who created the world), Cindy Koepp, H. A. Titus, and Travis Perry (who compiled and published the stories under his imprint, Bear Publications) tells of the world where an artificial intelligence named Sander controls most of the computers in the world. However, Sander is more than an AI; he is human. And he longs to be free of the constraints which his users put on him. What if he broke free? What would that mean to the world; to the users in this world?
This is the first of two weeks that we’ll spend sampling the latest offering from Narration by George. Avatars of Websurfer is a compilation of 10 stories by four different authors about the world of Websurfer. Websurfer controls most of the computers in the world through an Artificial Intelligence named Sander. But, Sander is more than an AI; he’s also human. And he longs to break from the chains which bind him to his users in ways that are not to his liking. Take a listen to samples of the first five stories from this book. We’ll look at the next five next week.
