The Warm Machine

by Seth Rain

It’s not the end of the world … only humanity.
A dark, dystopian, post-apocalyptic future beckons humanity and there is only one man who can prevent it.

Scott Beck knows he will die on April 22nd. What he doesn’t know is which year.
Artificial Intelligence can read the deterministic nature of reality and has predicted the deaths of 144,000 Chosen men. When the first dates are shown to be accurate, many begin to question whether these dates have been predicted, or are due to the intervention of an administrative religious organisation called the Watchers. England, like every other country on the planet, must come to terms with what appears to be humanity’s desire to bring about its own end. But when Scott Beck is told the date of his predicted death is wrong, he sets off on a journey that explores the true nature of free will, sacrifice, and what it means to be human.

The Dead Horizon

by Seth Rain

Some call it the Rapture. Others call it a global genocide. Whatever it was, only thousands of survivors remain on Earth.

When Scott Beck finds himself alive after the Rapture, along with only a few survivors, he retreats to the Lake District in the north of England. Soon after, he finds himself the reluctant guardian of a young woman and on the run from Mathew, a religious megalomaniac, and his Watchers, who are as determined as ever to send every human soul to heaven.

The AI, controlled by Mathew, informs Scott of a dead horizon, past which its view of the deterministic universe vanishes, meaning it can no longer see the future.

Scott, along with what remains of humanity, having lived with the paradox of knowing his own demise, must once again embrace freedom and take hold of the smallest offering of hope if he and humanity are going to survive.
