In 2055 the title of World Chess Champion has been held by Artificial Intelligences for 30 years. Out of nowhere a young challenger appears, defeating powerful AIs in China, India, and the U.S. 2 machines stand between him and the title--but will he live long enough to wrest the title from them?



Short Summary

Victor Leventon, 25, has burst on the chess scene, defeating several AIs with ease. To claim the world title he must defeat the top 2 AIs in the world, Russia's ARAKHNA and the Swiss mystery machine FORT. Strange forces align against him--for more is at stake than the mastery of an ancient game.
