Solis Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Solis

"Mr. Charlie" opts for cryonic suspension of his head at death in the hopes of seeing Mars when he is 're-animated' sometime in the future. His brain is eventually sold on the black market and used by "lewdists" to illegaly generate fantasies for them. He is then being used as a control center for a mining operation and is threatened with being disassembled and parceled off as 'wetware'. An AI-droid gets a radio signal from him which inspires a CP or contra-parameter program that the highly evolved Mott have given him which makes him feel compassion. He convinces a 'jumper' to join him in the rescue hoping to eventually find refuge on Solis (Mars).
