The Story behind Xero Error

•April 26, 2009 • 1 Comment

xe_blog_synopsisIn the future Artificial intelligence [AI] is superceded by Natural intelligence [NI]. 

 The story centers on XE7, a cyborg on a spiritual journey who discovers the unknown. He begins to realize that things in recorded history contradict with facts he has observed in real life and begins to open up his mind to the supernatural. He finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, at a major crime scene, leading him to a Cyber-terrorism scandal and trouble with FACET – The First Authority in Cyber Espionage and Terrorism. Packaged as a slick, futuristic thriller, the compelling storyline keeps you guessing till the end. Will logic overcome belief? Find out in Xero Error slated for release late 2009.
