Book Details

Sue Burke, author of the acclaimed novel Semiosis, returns with Dual Memory, a standalone novel blending the hard science fiction of Her with the action adventure of The Third Man.

Antonio Moro lost everything to the Leviathan League, ruthless global pirates. Now he's alone in a city on an Arctic island fighting Freebooters with nothing but lies—and the mistaken idea that he's a spy.

When things look bleak, he discovers an unusual ally. His new personal assistant program, Par Augustus, is a nascent A. I. He's also insolent, extroverted, moody, and not quite legal.

Together they forge an uneasy alliance, and create a rebellion from unlikely recruits to defend the island city.

The hitch? No one else can ever know. Especially the humans.

Praise for Immunity Index

“This hits close to home.”—Publishers Weekly

This dystopian biothriller reads like a 21st-century version of Michael Crichton’s The Andromeda Strain, crossed with George Orwell’s 1984. . . . hopeful, heartbreaking, and compelling at every turn. Highly recommended for readers of dystopian science fiction or political technothrillers.”—Library Journal, starred review

“A fast-paced hard-sf thriller… Burke imparts detailed discussions on genetics within a dramatic and thought-provoking story of inequality, humanity and family. For fans of the Orphan Black television series or Chuck Wendig’s Wanderers (2019).”—Booklist

“Prescient and powerful, this is a gut-punch of a book . . . Sue Burke only gets better and better. She is a genuine if unsung hero of our genre.”—Seanan McGuire

“Riveting world building by a rising star of science fiction.”—David Brin

“A fascinating world.”—The Verge

“A solid debut.”—SFRevu

“A magnetic meditation on biochemistry and humanity.”—Locus Online

“This first-contact tale is extraordinary.”—Library Journal (starred review)

“Sharp, evocative . . . Semiosis unfolds the old science fiction idea of first contact in ways that are both traditional and subversive.”—The Christian Science Monitor

“A clever, fascinating, fun and unique debut.”—Kirkus Reviews

"Burke’s world building is exceptional, and her ability to combine the intricacies of colonization with the science of botany and theories of mutualism and predation is astounding." —Booklist
