Book Review: 2031: The Singularity Pogrom

Dan Ronco’s third novel, set in a violent near-future environment, ushers the reader into a world where computers are becoming increasingly smarter, genetically enhanced humans are being created, and experimentation with the integration of human and artificial intelligence has begun. 2031: The Singularity Pogrom was released in August of 2010 by All Things That Matter Press.

The author tells the story of a clash of wills between software genius Ray Brown, his gifted son David, and the megalomaniac Dianne Morgan. In this science fiction/thriller David Brown is a prime candidate for the integration of human and artificial intelligence experiments until it is discovered that his son, Martin, has greatly exceeded his father’s brilliance and talent. Ray Brown, after being framed for the release of a computer virus that destroyed the Internet, causing the deaths of thousands, has escaped from the island where he’s been imprisoned and joins forces with the masses opposing psychopath Dianne Morgan, along with her warrior robots, her experiments, and the pogrom she has begun against traditional humans.

Ronco also deftly explores how far we can push the development and integration of ever-smarter computers with genetically improved humans before we create a species that could replace us.

The blood tingling effect of the possibilities presented by science and technology is galvanized by this gripping novel. The vivid plot and intense characters make this novel a true page-turner that you won’t be able to put down.

After completing degrees in both chemical and nuclear engineering, Dan Ronco began designing nuclear reactors for submarines, but discovered computer programming more to his liking. However he still felt something was missing. Fortunately for us he left the consulting world of computer programming and found his true calling as a novelist. The book is available at and almost everywhere books are sold.
