Volume 10, Number 3: “Inhuman Pleasures”

Note: This story was guest-written by Lon Ryden. Jerry Burroughs is a brilliant but absent-minded student programmer running real-time psychometric data collection project from the Gnosis computer lab. He works in a lab Rosalyn Keyes, a post-graduate student, who continues stoically pushing forward on a mysterious artificial intelligence research project in the face of terminal cancer. Jerry’s work is interrupted when long-suffering Federal investigators Gordon Smith and Caroline Ong show up to ask some very pointed questions about the fact that most of the human subjects in Jerry’s have…disappeared. More shocking revelations suggest the possibility of a serial killer on the loose in the area of Gnosis. Will Special Agents Smith and Ong get to the bottom of this mad science mystery before there are more disappearances?
