Can human intelligence thrive in computer hardware? The Silicon Man tells an intensely human, suspenseful story showing how it may be done. William Gibson praised it as "a plausible, well-crafted narrative exploring cyberspace in a wholly new and very refreshing way." The Washington Post described it as "a well-plotted, fast-paced, and imaginative look into the future... a book where ideas drive the plot. Above all, Platt's work is full of surprises." Science Fiction Review said that it ranks "right up there with Michaelmas and The Demolished Man." And Gregory Benford commented, "In fascinating detail, Platt shows us what it would really be like to live (and breathe!) in cyberspace."

A second novel, Protektor, moves the action five centuries into a future where semi-intelligent computers have formed a unique, symbiotic relationship with humanity, creating an interstellar utopia- at the price of human freedom.

Together for the first time in one volume, these science-fiction adventures explore the ultimate implications of virtual reality and artificial intelligence with high drama and an in-depth understanding of the technology.
