Area author’s e-book on Kindle
Discovery Bay author Alan Hoshor has just published his first e-book, planned for Amazon’s Kindle Singles. “Requiem for Humanity” is a short collection of essays about the future of the human race. Hoshor joins prominent futurists like Bill Joy, Ray Kurzweil and Jaron Lanier in their efforts to illuminate the dramatic changes faced by modern society. Hoshor is a generalist who applies critical thinking and realistic science in his prophecies for humanity over this century. He aspires to give the general reader a rational context for viewing the metamorphosis transforming the world today.
