Book

First edition.

A sequel to "A Borrowed Man" is set in a future world of artificial intelligence where a clone is loaned out to a little girl before discovering that his original self, a mystery writer, is still alive.
Hundreds of years in the future there are pockets of civilization and humans are few. There is advanced technology to sustain us. There are robots to do the heavy lifting. And there are reclones. E. A. Smithe is a borrowed person, his personality an uploaded recording of a deceased mystery writer. Smithe is the property of the library system, not a legal human. As such Smithe can be loaned to other branches. Which he is. Along with two fellow reclones, a cookbook and romance writer, they are shipped to a secluded seaside town, where Smithe meets a little girl who wants to save her mother, a father who is dead but perhaps not. And another E. A. Smithe...who definitely is.
