Product Description

Review


"Not since Fritz Leiber has a writer so skillfully married science fiction to horror and made them both stronger for it. Resurrection, Inc. is as scary as it is thought-provoking--buy it and read it." --The Horror Show
"Anderson has done an admirable job of working out the changes in society . . . told with a straightforward style that belies the book's convoluted plot and sub-plots." --Weird Tales
"Cleverly twisting two different extrapolations (one in bioengineering, the other in sociology) into a solid science-fictional whole . . . Anderson has done a very credible job of playing all the consequences of his speculations against each other and of giving a fair hearing to all sides of the issues he raises." --Dragon Magazine
"This first effort is well plotted and lively in the telling, with an empathy for those lives at the bottom rungs of society."--Publisher's Weekly
"Whoa! What a great novel! I enjoyed this one immensely."--The Overlook Connection
"Fine descriptive narration . . . not only adds a dimension to the quality of Resurrection, Inc. but makes one await Kevin Anderson's next work with great interest. --Fantasy Commentator
"Kevin Anderson's first novel is reminiscent of the type of story that thrived in SF twenty years ago, but which has largely been ignored recently. Hopefully this fine first effort will refocus attention on a very productive vein."
--Science Fiction Chronicle
"Anderson sends out the various subplots to the four winds, but keeps control of them and brings them back together for the climax quite nicely. He's got a strong sense of dialog and character, and makes the world he's writing about come to life and mean something to you." --Other Realms
"In every field of endeavor, good craftsmanship is to be recognized, appreciated, and held out as the standard for others in the field. Kevin J Anderson's Resurrection, Inc. is just such an accomplishment and merits our enthusiastic an

"This book was written 25 years ago and the story still holds up very well . . . In fifty years this book will still be a good read. It has all the mechanisms of classic literary work." GeekyLibrary
"As with all of his work, these books showcase Anderson's knack for crisp prose, magnetic plots, and balancing intimate characterization with galaxy-size ideas." 5230: The Denver Magazine

In every field of endeavor, good craftsmanship is to be recognized, appreciated, and held out as the standard for others in the field. Kevin J Anderson s Resurrection, Inc. is just such an accomplishment and merits our enthusiastic and wholehearted recommendation! Midwest Book Review
Anderson has created a chillingly effective portrayal of a world turned cruel and unfeeling.... It is a devastating mixture of gothic horror and science fiction, unlike anything you have read before. Small Press Writers and Artists Organization Newsletter
Resurrection, Inc. is the best science fiction novel I ve read since Greg Bear s Blood Music. 2 A.M. Magazine

From the Back Cover

IT IS THE FUTURE AND THE DEAD WALK THE STREETS

Resurrection Inc. found a profitable way to do it. All it took was a microprocessor brain, a synthetic heart and blood and voila! anyone with the money could buy a Servant with no mind of its own, trained to obey any command. But for every Servant created, a living worker was out of a job, and suddenly Resurrection Inc.’s profits became everyone else’s loss.

Some take to rioting in the streets, their rampages ruthlessly ended by heavily armed Enforcers, eager for the kill. Others join the ever growing cult of Neo-Satanism, seeking heaven in the depths of hell.

Only one man tries to save the world. He is the last hope for the living. His name is Danal, he is dead – but he remembers. Everything.

“Kevin J. Anderson is the heir apparent to Arthur C. Clarke.”
DANIEL KEYS MORAN

How have I missed this author before now. I came across when reading about a Rush album and this book was created as a result. Its a tightly plotted story but asks a huge question about what it is to be human
The world is a very controlled one with a new religion created because someone thinks they could - and to prove that some people was just too stupid to survive. The idea of reanimating people after they die so that they would do the drudge work and free up the rest of society to think and be creative sounds tempting - but the reality is that people don't work - hence the religion
You have to pay attention to the plot and I did find it a little confusing in that people you thought were dead were not but hey it's good sci fi so I recommend this

What a good and interesting book. Nice concepts and moral questions throughout the story line without being overly in depth. I highly recommend.

Great story like most of Kevins works. If you want a new story from him that heads in a new direction, this could be for you.
