A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

A band of immortals recruit a new member, the brilliant Cherokee physicist Sequoya Guess. Dr. Guess, with the group's help, gains control of Extro, the super-computer that controls all mechanical activity on Earth. They plan to rid Earth of political repression and to further Guess's researches-which may lead to a great leap in human evolution to produce a race of supermen. But Extro takes over Guess instead and turns malevolent. The task of the merry band suddenly becomes a fight in deadly earnest for the future of Earth.

From the Back Cover:

Alfred Bester's first science fiction novel since The Stars My Destination was a major event -- a fast-moving adventure story set in Earth's future. A band of immortals -- as charming a bunch of eccentrics as you'll ever come across -- recruit a new member, the brilliant Cherokee physicist Sequoya Guess. Dr. Guess, with the group's help, gains control of Extro, the super-computer that controls all mechanical activity on Earth. They plan to rid Earth of political repression and to further Guess's researches -- which may lead to a great leap in human evolution to produce a race of supermen. But Extro takes over Guess instead and turns malevolent. The task of the merry band suddenly becomes a fight in deadly earnest for the future of Earth.

Sequoya Guess, whom they love, must be killed. And how do you kill an immortal?

THE COMPUTER CONNECTION is a jam-packed extraordinary science fiction novel -- what Alfred Bester's readers have been experiencing for over five decades.
