Mindscan

July’s Book of the Month is Mindscan by Robert J. Sawyer (2005). It’s got the classic cheese of good sci fi and the contemporary sensibility and subject matter that makes Sawyer great (check out Neanderthal’s Paralax if you have not yet).

“When his father suffers a brain hemorrhage, Jake Sullivan, heir a Canadian brewery fortune, discovers he has the same rare, hereditary disease. Fear of an early death inspires him… to undergo a Mindscan, an expensive but apparently fool-proof technique in which the entire brain is scanned and downloaded into a technologically superior mechanical body that doesn’t breathe, eat, sleep or sweat and is theoretically immortal. The result? Two Jake Sullivans.” Via Kirkus
