When out-of-shape IT technician Roen woke up and started hearing voices in his
head, he naturally assumed he was losing it.

split into two opposing factions - the peace-loving, but under-represented
Prophus, and the savage, powerful Genjix - the aliens have been in a state of
civil war for centuries. Both sides are searching for a way off-planet, and the

|Made to Kill by Adam Christopher
Made to Kill by Adam Christopher was our selection to represent June's theme of Ghost in the Machine. A couple of years
ago we had read Empire State by the same author. It was well received, so we looked forward to Made to Kill. Made to
Kill was about the last robot who happens to be a hit man (machine). Our moderator had read almost everything by
Christopher and noted the diversity in his works. The general consensus was that Empire State was a 'B+' rating while
Made to Kill warranted a 'B' - still good, just not as involving. Lively discussion.
