the erased

About

The Erased is an e-book by Grant Piercy, available for the Amazon Kindle.

You’ve been imprisoned by a shadowy government project and your identity has been erased; the only question is why. Welcome Home.

In a dystopian society where severe laws are in place to regulate the media you’re allowed to view, anyone and anything can be erased. Most people get their information and entertainment from the Knowledgebase -- a computer network dubbed the “sum total of human knowledge.” But forces are at work to edit and shape the Knowledgebase as they see fit -- suppressing dissident thoughts and behaviors. Their clear target: a group of rebels who hide in plain sight and call themselves the Transhumans -- people who remote into androids illegally, and whose goal is to eventually transplant a human consciousness into an android.

In the middle of this stands 77, a prisoner who’s been asked to repair a broken android for his captors. Once he solves the mystery of this android, he may find the truth behind the Transhumans, the elusive Knowledgebase architects, and the erased.

The Erased presents a near-future parable for the media age, where the march toward merging with technology comes at a terrible price.

Surveillance State of the Day: That persistent paranoia that you’re being watched all the time? It’s justified.

According to documents leaked on Wikileaks, the U.S. government has cobbled together a new technology that siphons real-time data from surveillance cameras in stores, casinos, and other businesses around the country, then allows agents to use facial recognition software to analyze the footage for terrorists — or would-be terrorists.

The best part? Because the structure was more-or-less already in place, this has mostly happened under the radar of most Americans. So predictable.
