Spares - human clones, the ultimate health insurance. An eye for an eye - but some people are doing all the taking. The story of Jack Randall: burnt-out, dropped out, and way overdrawn at the luck bank. But as caretaker on a Spares Farm, he still has a choice, and it might make a difference.

 One of the best

Its so well written! This site doesn't say but in 1996, when Spares was released, the film rights to which were purchased by Steven Spielberg's DreamWorks. Although the rights lapsed, Dreamworks did produce The Island, whose plot had strong similarities to Spares, MMS didn't consider it worthwhile to pursue legal action over the similarities. He now considers it unlikely a Spares film will ever be made, as does everyone else. The moral of this story is best summed up with the quote "Memories are nothing more than a book you've read and lost, not a bible for the rest of your life". Bottom line is I LOVE THIS BOOK , the latest cover is wicked too.

 The Way Forward

The story is one of pain, suffering, confusion, revenge, addiction, anger, violence, humour.... the list is endless, however all these aspects come together into one of the best Sci-fi books I have ever read. I also recommend "Only Forward" and "One of Us" and if you get the chance the book of short stories is pretty good as well.

 Sci-Fi Madness - Brilliant

Utter genius, violent, sad, heroic, plot twists a plenty and some black, black sarcasm. MMS is an author for todays age.
