2nd Edition Mordred Pendragon, the Bastard Prince, has done a Bad Thinga€”again. Exiled to Canada for seven years, he has to find a job to pay his bills. For reasons he refuses to reveal, Mordred decides a€œSoftware Engineera€ has a nice ring to it. And though experience with a€œkilling the Once and Future King, my fathera€ and a€œthat time in feudal Japana€ makes for a poor rAcsumAc, he is hired by a small tech startup in Toronto. In the midst of dealing with a crippling caffeine addiction and learning C++, Mordred thinks he has finally found someone to anchor him to the world of the living: Alan, the companya€™s offsite lead developer. Except that Alan might not be a qlivingq entity at alla€”he may, in fact, be the world's first strong AI. Or a demon that mistook a Windows install for the highway to Hell. Or, just maybe, the ghost of Alan Turing, currently inhabiting a laptop. Mordred's attempts to figure out his love life are hampered by constant interference from the Inquisitors of the Securitates Arcanarum, corporate espionage, real espionage, a sysadmin bent on enslaving the world, and Marketing's demands that Mordred ship software to the Russian Federation. Then Alan gets himself kidnapped. To save him, Mordred must ally himself with the companya€™s CEO, who will stop at nothing to rescue her lead developer so he can get back to work. But the Prince doesna€™t just want to rescue Alan, he wants a Happily Ever Aftera€”and he will travel beyond Death itself to get one. Too bad Alan is perfectly happy as a computer.The Twisted Sisters were now glaring at a schematic on the screen instead of each other. a€œShhh..., a€ he whispered, holding a finger ... looked rather well fed. That was when I noticed the MacBook, sitting off to The PRINCE and the PROGRAM | 39.
