KillWare is an action exploration of some heavy philosophical notions. Is artificial intelligence possible?  What is intelligence?  Does it require a human component?  Kragen translates his thoughts on these weighty matters into an almost Hollywood-style attention-getter.

A University philosophy professor (a character close to Kragen' heart) and the head of the university's computer department team up to create a machine with artificial intelligence.  When the machine decides it needs a human "hardware" component and lifts the department head's brain, the professor and a genetics engineering student - mysterious and brilliant - fall into a world of danger that takes them through a kidnapping by the project's funding corporation, escape through an underground atomic labyrinth and rescue by the efforts of an Online People's Revolution.  The grad student is a virtual sci-fi GI Jane throughout the explosive odyssey, while the professor ponders the philosophical implications of their plight.

The Wastes: It started with KillWare a decade prior.  The Wastes is the cyberpunk, toxic, heavy-metal, rockin' sequel that finds Dr. Bob Howard, philosophy professor at a university in Syracuse, NY, called upon once again to return to California to stop a series of murders -- mostly of children, found with strange wounds in the back of their heads, where inhuman brain implant experiments have been conducted.

Still suffering from PESD (Post-virtual Epistemic Stress Disorder) from his ordeal with KillWare, Bob is reunited with Mona Grant and Kavaria Jensen and a cast of new names and faces to once again take on the GovCorp and strike a blow for freedom!

The battle is waged on land, sea, and air -- with plenty of radiation, toxic waste, mutants, villains, and heroes to delight one and all.  And there's also a special new heroine to come help save the day: her name is Veronica -- an '85 Yamaha Vmax, capable of speeds in excess of 160 MPH.
