Deep space, a soulless expanse of littered stars, ushers the cash-strapped mercenary Asegai to a chance, once-in-a-lifetime discovery; a derelict, drifting flagship, ripe for the taking. His AI finds, evaluates, and links with the craft, promising vast wealth upon the ship’s recovery. As always, Asegai is cautious but perhaps blinded by the immensity of his discovery.He’ll soon find this to be a mistake.Within the command center of the monstrous prize, the mercenary pilot encounters a ‘life-form’ like no other – Contrarian, an advanced artificial intelligence with professed sentience and counterintuitive processing, designed to be the perfect opponent against any “inferior” human pilot. Before long wits are tested and a battle rages, pitting the gifted warrior against an intelligence bent on the destruction of them all.In a stunning upheaval of rational thinking and the concept of artificial intelligence, the door is opened to possibilities that will make you rethink advanced evolution, life, and the true meaning of death. You won’t know until the very end who…or what, triumphs.Check out kellinkston.com for more science fiction, fantasy, and world-traveling nervousness in general.Also check out https://www.facebook.com/kellinkston/ for updates, free goodies, and more!

“To be frank we actually don’t know that much about this creature. Ywn mentioned briefly that it observes happenstances in other dimensions, like a sort of spy or basement-dwelling loser, but that all seems so far-fetched… if Ywn says it though, it must be true. Current intel suggests it loves writing, reading, bird-watching and ‘getting emails from readers’; whatever the hell that is. It claims to be an analyst from S.E.E.R., but we don’t yet know what that acronym stands for. All we can go off of is what it publishes in different dimensions, so if you’re reading this, understand that Kell has likely integrated into your reality and is actively vying for control over your media networks.
Caution advised: intel suggests a non-physical cognitive structure and a riftwalk class of at least four, if not five.
Our datamancers have ascertained its communication hub: kellinkston.com, which is worth visiting for the sake of gaining additional intel.” – Scribe Tain, O.E.L.
