Jason Fink

As a former gorilla wrangler and elephant herder (or so he claims), this author has some serious skills. From the Peace Corps to public health, he’s had a winding path full of diverse experiences all thanks to his ADHD. He’s taught at an inner-city elementary school, worked at an eye bank collecting eyes, directed an allied health program and has done in-depth public health work. And when he’s not busy making the world a better place, he’s writing – he’s won awards for his short stories and has self-published many fictional works. So if you’re in need of a skilled and slightly unconventional writer this former gorilla-wrangler-turned-public-health-pro might just be the author for you.

Quantum Prosthetics (Science-Fiction)

Surprisingly enough, the Singularity didn’t start with the internet. It started with an amputee. This is the tale of two Dacks, one a human, the other an accidentally formed artificial intelligence – though it doesn’t think that its intelligence is all that artificial. To prove it, the computer version of Dack will take over the human, then the world… not really. Together they embark on a journey, a winding path that tries to define what it is to be human. This is an experimental novella, a technology-based Jonathan Livingston Seagull if you will written as a series of tangents within tangents.
