Item Description...
Joshua has a dream of building a world free of fools. In 2023 he purchases an obscure research company, Empire Genetics, and shapes it into a formidable force. Forty years later, Joshua's grandson, Joseph, discovers an implant in his brain capable of taking full control of his body. This tiny biological device is a clone of Dr. Lieberman, the current CEO of Empire Genetics. Stripped of his memories, disoriented and angry, Joseph eventually learns to accept his new reality, and even gets close to his intruder, who helps Joseph understand the background and true fate of his family. Talking to a clone becomes a true blessing during times of a deep split in our society between those who can afford genetic modification for their kids and those who can't. The full potential of human development means we are about to become gods to the biological creatures we design, which raises painful questions. "Who are we relative to those who created us? Were we made in their image just by pure accident?"

A future of human cloning and genetics made ficticious  Dec 6, 2006
Reviewed by Regan Windsor for Reader Views (11/06)

The year is 2063, human cloning in the form of Lover clones is rampant, and America has lost its middle class as parents spare no expense on genetic modifications to make their children the brightest and the best.

Joseph is in bed with his girlfriend when he suddenly finds his thoughts interrupted by Doctor Lieberman, one of the FBI's most wanted since his use of human cloning technology in 2035; a man who disappeared nearly thirty years prior. As Doctor Lieberman jokes with Joseph about keeping his 25 million dollars and his girlfriend Gisela brings up a trip to China he has just returned from Joseph is suddenly confused. He doesn't remember a trip and he certainly has no idea about the 25 million dollars. Further intrigued by the Doctor's ability to read his mind he agrees to meet with him the next day. However, when he shows up he finds one of the many clones of the Doctor, this one a transverse clone intent on playing games with him. As she toys with him, he refuses to be caught in her games and decides to play back. As he walks away with the bag of money (which he has relieved his bladder all over in the spirit of "the game") his mind is full of questions.

As Joseph is pulled into the web of Doctor Lieberman, through the implant of a chip allowing him to take over Joseph's body and mind, he begins to find answers to many of his questions and learn a lot about his grandfathers' involvement along the way.

Full of intrigue, foresight, and suspense "Battleship of Fools" will spark your imagination of the world to come. Inspired by Bosch's "Ship of Fools," the premise of the novel is the desire to rid the world of "fools" through the use of genetic modifications and human cloning. Is this a possibility ...or a dire and foolish pursuit?
compelling new novel  Jun 8, 2006
The year is 2063. Human cloning is has been perfected, and although it's illegal, humans and clones are widely bred. Lover clones--male and female--have been created for torrid, problem-free sex, and the novel's protagonist, Joseph, has been bred to be a phenomenally successful Wall Street analyst.

Joseph's grandfather, Joshua, followed a dream to genetically engineer foolishness out of the human race, but he discovered that he had a higher mission--to spread genetic technology around the world so that no single country can dominate.

In the meantime, the mysterious Dr. Lieberman, CEO of the genetic engineering company that Joseph's grandfather founded forty years earlier and now the world's most wanted criminal, has found a way to control Joseph and others through tiny surgical implants.

Igor Gershengorin's debut novel is lively, entertaining, and highly original. Strongly recommended.

--Reviewed by Charles Patterson, author of Eternal Treblinka: Our Treatment of Animals and the Holocaust
