Elijah Smith's mind has been replaced, piece-by-piece, with virtual counterparts. His transformation thrusts his survivors into a maelstrom of violence, danger, and intrigue. Only Smith has the power to save them -- provided that he is still human.

Mankind has been merging with his technology since the first time a caveman picked up a walking stick. We easily accept the fact that eyeglasses, pacemakers, and prosthetic limbs improve or replace human biology. Soon we will have to accept the fact that the human mind can also be improved or replaced by the addition of technological components.

HUMAN combines elements of a spy thriller with a cautionary tale about man's quest to use technology to escape death. The heart-racing climax leads to a haunting conclusion will make you question everything you think you know about what it actually means to be human.
