A sampling of acclaim for John L. Sheppard
John L. Sheppard wrote the novels After the Jump, No Brass, No Ammo and Small Town Punk.
Explosive Decompression is the sequel to After The Jump which I haven’t read yet, but you can easily read this book without reading the first. Audrey Novak created AI (artificial intelligence) and used time travel to send herself back into the mind of herself as a child so she could save the world from aliens (which never attacked) in her world.
The story takes place two centuries after the “Great Collapse” and Canada is now a world power. The ruling class of people has been genetically modified so that only the very best rule after a near collapse of the economy caused by storms and nuclear wars. Audrey 3.0 (the third version) is now an AI and is the narrator of the story. She’s fun, slightly snarky and has lots of attitude but in a way that makes you like her immediately. The world hasn’t turned out the way she planned, and she wants to save it from itself before it’s too late.
I absolutely loved reading Explosive Decompression. The story line was fascinating, and I liked Audrey instantly. I haven’t read After the Jump yet, but loved this book so much that I plan on reading that one next. If you’re a fan of Isaac Asimov, dystopian novels or artificial intelligence, you’ll want to read this one.
