There is a new novel out on Amazon/Books titled Flags and Tears. It is a historical fiction about England’s first military invasion of the mountainous Afghanistan. It historically follows the time line of events. Many of the characters are based on those actually involved. The epic has never been told in novel form.
The political intrigue to the overthrow of the Afghan Emir is one layer of the plot, along with a war time love story. A diverse cast of characters, including world leaders, spies, a smuggler, a priestess, beautiful women and soldiers, are woven in the religious, cultural tapestry of Afghanistan and India during England’s 19th century rule.
Marvel at how history repeats at different times and places.
Love the turn table of books, Simon! And congratulations on Arcadia!
AI may not be gaining sentience (yet), but as humans cede more decision-making to its algorithms subconsciously, are we “losing consciousness”? Does this contribute to their false perception that AI is “sentient”?
