Singularity’s Children is the tale of a generation born into interesting times. A chronicle of the final decades of humanity’s million year journey.

Early in the Third Millennium, the world is slipping beyond comprehension. Mastery of technology is deepening society’s divides; generating fantastic wealth for a few, but trauma and suffering for many. People are bewildered by relentless waves of boom and bust, kept in line by vast programs of computer-driven propaganda.

A few techno-optimists see past corporate greed and political charade. They dream of a post-scarcity utopia glittering on the horizon—a harmonious future for all Singularity’s Children…

But ancient demons are not easily slain. The world is tired. The internet is dying. Wars ravage the former western democracies. Religions whisper promises of simpler times, while the rising power of the ‘Way Forward’ bewitches with its synthetic siren’s voices.

Against this backdrop plays an epic action-adventure of vivid world-building; a rich fabric, woven from colorful characters—not all human—who draw you into a terrifyingly familiar world of technology, morality and hope.

Frequently funny, often irreverent, occasionally bawdy—Singularity’s Children is a Positive Futurist Science Fiction Techno-Thriller

Toby was born in Truro, England. Up until the age of 19, he lived in the fishing village of Mevagissey in Cornwall. After University he took several jobs in the UK, Germany, Austria, and Australia before returning to England to complete a Master’s Degree in Software Engineering at the University of Westminster.
