    Interesting.....

    I just started reading a book by Mark Healy. He is the the man behind the project, Hibernal. His 1st album release is called "The Machine". It is a spoken word story put to music.

    "The Machine" is a story about a man that works for a company, and every time he is promoted, a body part gets replaced with a synthetic..... :eek:

    Hibernal's 2nd album is called "Replacements"

    The book I got is a full length novel to accompany the next release, "After The Winter". The eBook is available on Amazon for $.99 and the album will be out sometime in 2015.

    Book Description
    Publication Date: October 28, 2014

    The Earth is in ruins. Cities and nations destroyed. Those who survive the onslaught succumb to the cold blackness of winter. A handful of machines finally emerge into the light, lost and directionless. They are the last remnants of civilisation.

    Brant is a synthetic - a machine who has the appearance and emotions of the humans who made him. He is hunted across the wasteland by cruel scavengers known as Marauders who are intent on cannibalising his body to prolong their own lives.

    Brant carries a great burden as he tries to return home: a secret that can change the world. Against the unforgiving desert, the twisted denizens of this new world and his own dark past he needs to find a way back at any cost.

    I own the DVD of the first one, The Machine. Good Sci Fi story or plot, some REALLY good cinematic scenes, decent gunplay (for a low budget movie), decent acting. Caity Lotz is pretty darned good, as an actress, and as something to look at.

    I like it better than the critics seemed to.

    @ Hermitt....Books sound really good....

    @Ajole.....I plan to buy The Machine soon....I know the actress from the tv show Arrow.....she played the black canary...and did a great job I thought. Can't wait to see both of these movies....
