Event Details


Join author Daniel Suarez for a reading and discussion

of his new book, Kill Decision

 

 ...a terrific mix of thrills and mayhem, big ideas, and well-founded technological and social speculation. This is the kind of mind-expanding novel that uses entertainment to make powerful, important points about alarming current trends; the novel as cautionary tale has rarely been better executed.

Tim O'Reilly

More about the book:

When the U.S. finds itself subjected to targeted drone assassinations, the race is on to find those responsible. But after the drones are discovered to be autonomous — programmed to strike without direct human control — the search for the perpetrators becomes infinitely more difficult. It's a discovery that heralds in a new era of cheap, anonymous war, where the kill decision has moved from man to machine with lasting consequences for us all.
