Part of a series of images from the liquid metal, carbo-plastic, hydrogel and permacrete core of visual creators on the Internet.  Images that stir my senses and evoke plots and concepts for what I’d like to see (or fear) in the future.

Now I don’t want to get carried away here. But this image is freaking unbelievably powerful. It comes up as my wallpaper every now and again, when I’m not enjoying the latex clad erotic – psuedo-cyberpunk –  forms of Bianca Beauchamp or Miss Mosh popping up on random rotation. Whenever I see this guy looking back at me it strikes me right in the chest. Bang. Thump. What’s left of his hair is grey and wispy. His skin has gone the texture of dead leaves and the earpiece of his comms looks frakked. But most of all, it’s the look in his eyes.  It’s that culmination of decades of life building to a sublime, soul crushing moment of weariness from it all.  And who knows how long this chap has actually be alive.  The body could be old but maybe the mind is young – digitally encoded and beamed across a Galaxy to a “rented” human host to tackle some crisis. Or installed via a cerebral codex – a unique piece of cybernetic wizadry – containing a complete digital copy of a human personality who long since lost any physical body. Or maybe he’s just old. And aware of his mortality. And aware of how much Space is out there – new worlds to uncover and old adventurers to relive.

God Seed a sci-fi dark fantasy novel by British author David J Rodger

Available in Paperback or Kindle

Paperback : from LULU & Kindle: US ($), UK (£), DE (Euro)

GOD SEED { novel } For acclaimed documentary film-maker, Adam Kyle, this was going to be another feather in his cap. Embedded within a team of highly trained corporate mercenaries, he was covering the start of an operation in England. But when the operation goes terribly wrong, Kyle finds himself battling for his life, his sanity, and maybe even his very soul as a new and dramatic story unfolds, dragging him across the globe…and beyond. It isn’t just his documentary that is at stake, but the fate of every living thing in the Universe. David J Rodger delivers a gut-wrenching and epic journey in a novel that plunges deep into the crawling chaos and takes you to the edge of the membrane of human existence.
