Our friends at IO9 have an exclusive three chapter excerpt from Robopocalypse author Daniel H. Wilson’s soon to be released novel Amped!
Robopocalypse presented readers with a world where our technology has turned against us. In Amped, the technology is part of us. people are implanted with a device that makes them capable of superhuman feats. The powerful technology has profound consequences for society, and soon a set of laws is passed that restricts the abilities—and rights—of “amplified” humans. On the day that the Supreme Court passes the first of these laws, twenty-nine-year-old Owen Gray joins the ranks of a new persecuted underclass known as “amps.” Owen is forced to go on the run, desperate to reach an outpost in Oklahoma where, it is rumored, a group of the most enhanced amps may be about to change the world—or destroy it.
