Bolo

From Bolo Strike:

Here's something that plays over and over aging in Bolo Strike. After the 5th or 6th time I was laughing out loud. Poor guy... His mind has been duplicated and downloaded into other bodies or machines several times. Each time , he thinks it’s still him rather than a copy.

Quote:
He awoke stretching…. And then the fear hit him in deep , shuddering waves , like the icy surf at Gods Beach. The Last thing he remembered …. No…. what was the last thing he remembered? Memory eluded him , like fragments of a dream.

He opened his eyes , then wondered why he couldn’t see. He reached out with a trembling , sweet-slicked hand , then realized he couldn’t feel anything , that the tremors , the sweet , the cold were imagined , anchors for the mind adrift within a vast and lightless void.

Concentrating , he summoned memories from deep , deep within, He’d been a in battle......he’d been..... he’d been a bolo combat unit of the line . His brain housed in a huge mobile armored vehicle. `He could remember....... The memories were still dim , still fragmented.

It’s about aliens downloading the minds of individuals into a computer base , and then using them for later. Much later or how ever often they want.

Send in the Bolo's !

Created by the Earth Alliance , A Bolo is a large tank about the size of a building. Sometimes larger. Actually it’s a long story that only the book can explain in more detail. The first Bolo books were the best. You would haft to like tanks and all the fire power they have to enjoy reading them. I enjoyed them simply because each Bolo tank came with an AI that kept talking to it’s crew , or a commander miles away whilst fighting off the enemy.

Oh yeah , order your books off Amazon. The shipping usually cost more than the book itself , but you still save a ton of money. They have everything there. Lots of New and Old books to pick and choose from. Be sure to read the comments before buying though, I got me a used Warstrider 3 Book that had spillages on it. It stained the book cover and it was no wonder that it only cost 48 cents.
