Selection: A tale of fate, AI, and climate change

Pre-order the Kindle version now!

Humanity almost destroyed itself. To survive the changing climate, we trusted every aspect of our lives to an all-knowing, all-seeing artificial intelligence, the Algorithm. With scarce resources, the Algorithm decides who lives in poverty and who lives in luxury to build an optimal society.

Omegas clean. Sigmas manage. Betas create. Alphas, lead.

No one questions the Algorithm.

SELECTION follows Sam, Jack, Jennie and Tabitha as they discover the Algorithm’s plan is more than it seems.

But do four people stand a chance against an omnipotent AI who may know them better than they know themselves?
