DescripciÃ³n del producto
Science fiction books about bio-engineered super humans are nothing new, but seldom do we see this factor coupled with the psychology and thought processes of such supermen in such an eloquent way. Morgan really does this well in Thirteen. The bio-engineered soldiers, hunted and exiled to colonies and work camps by fearful "normals", grieve, suffer, love, hate and otherwise have the fully range of emotional senses we all have.
Yet, because of the remarkable success humanity had in creating these super-soldiers, they must be exiled or imprisoned. This is the story of a Variant 13 and how he lives. Like he does with his Kovacs character in Altered Carbon and its sequels, Morgan demonstrates again his superior ability to not only tell an interesting tale, but also his mastery of revealing the human side of his characters and creating empathy with his readers.
One of his best. This is a great Science Fiction novel.

It is gritty, and dramatic, painful, but engaging. I can honestly say I bought this after reading Altered Carbon without any other expectations. I love both books! No two readers are the same but for me The cultural and moral comments were both appealing and non-intrusive. This is a heartrending science fiction drama!suankarnchang.com/images/map18.php
Morgan is the great talent in scifi in the last 20 years, and his stories will stand the test of time. Yet another winner by Richard K. The prose is tight and sparing; not a word wasted. The world he has created is fully realized. You'll be sucked into it for the duration, your daily worries and boredom forgotten. As with many of his protagonists, Morgan's Carl Masalis is an extremely sympathetic, three-dimensional character, someone you'll root for as he navigates a harsh, dystopic future peppered with corrupt politicians, profit-hungry corporations, gritty cops, street thugs, Bible-thumpers, and genetically engineered prostitutes and super soldiers.
This novel screams out for a sequel. Morgan is never anything short of polished; however, his books are flawlessly gritty.

His protagonist s in this novel are entirely human, in spite of one of them being slightly other than human. This novel, without giving away spoilers, reads like John D, MacDonald, William Gibson, and Neal Stephenson synergistically combined into something new, something amazing. I can't say enough good about RK Morgan in general, and if you're read any of his other novels, this is a must have.
If you're new to RK Morgan, this novel may be a bit hard to followMorgan's plotting is deep, dense, and can take some re-reading to get the full of itbut I never read a Morgan novel once, anyway. Every time I re-read one of his works, I get more out of it. This book is full of double-crosses, triple-crosses, and heroes who are entirely too humanno matter what they really are. Black Man is set in the year and the story follows Carl Marsalis, a genetically modified super-soldier.

These genetically modified variants or 'thirteens' as they're termed live in a world that saw fit to create them and then a number of years later out-law them. The 'thirteens' are shipped off-world to live out the rest of their lives on Mars. Carl Marsalis lives his life hunting other "thirteens", renegades who have escaped. One hundred years from now, and against all the odds, Earth has found a new stability; the political order has reached some sort of balance, and the new colony on Mars is growing. But the fraught years of the 21st century have left an uneasy legacy Genetically engineered alpha males, designed to fight the century's wars have no wars to fight and are surplus to requirements.
And a man bred and designed to fight is a dangerous man to have around in peacetime. Many of them have left for Mars but now one has come back and killed everyone else on the shuttle he returned in. Only one man, a genengineered ex-soldier himself, can hunt him down and so begins a frenetic man-hunt and a battle survival. And a search for the truth about what was really done with the world's last soldiers. It is about our capacity for violence but more worrying, our capacity for deceit and corruption.
