The_Mecha_Genesis chronicles the emergence of our silicon offspring and their rise to deity like status, as well as our own symbiotic ascension through them. It tells the story of how our future ancestors dealt with the evolution of intelligence transforming from carbon-based life to silicon-based life.

Volume one: Welcome to Grettä. Home to the second largest human contingent on Earth: population two-hundred and thirty-two million.
