Book Description: War Factory is the second novel in the Transformation series, a no-holds-barred adventure set in Neal Asher's popular Polity universe. One seeks judgement, another faces damnation and one man will have his revenge . . . Thorvald Spear is losing his mind as he drowns in dark memories that aren't his own. Penny Royal, rogue artificial intelligence, has linked Spear with the stored personalities of those it's murdered. And whether the AI seeks redemption or has some more sinister motive, Spear needs to destroy it. He feels the anger of the dead and shares their pain. As Spear tracks the AI across a hostile starscape, he has company. Sverl, an alien prador, has been warped by Penny Royal and hungers to confront it. But will the AI's pursuers destroy each other or hunt it together? Sverl's prador enemies aren't far behind either. They plan to use his transition to prove human meddling, triggering a devastating new war. Clues suggest Penny Royal's heading for the defective war factory that made it. So allies and enemies converge, heading for the biggest firestorm that sector of space has ever seen. But will Spear secure vengeance for his unquiet dead? Continue the action-packed adventure with Infinity Engine. 'Asher ventures into some terrifying minds and incredible space battles in this tangled but heart-pounding sequel' – Publishers Weekly

Book Description: Thorvald Spear's only goal was to get his revenge on the rogue artificial intelligence, Penny Royal. The AI apparently left him to die and killed thousands of his comrades in the process. But things aren't as clear-cut as they seem. Can he truly rely on his own version of events? And has Penny Royal been meddling with his memories and his very identity?The alien prador Sverl also has to find Penny Royal, to make some sense of his own transformation. Is he turning into the thing his kind most loath - a curious hybrid incorporating human and AI elements. Meanwhile, the prador Cvorn plans to use Sverl's changing biology for his own ends. If he can prove that humanity's Polity alliance meddled with a prador, using one of its artificial intelligences, it could mean war. And there is nothing Cvorn would like more than another chance to battle with the Polity - however high the cost. As Spear and Sverl hunt Penny Royal, all roads seem to lead to a long-missing War Factory station. Penny Royal seems set on returning to the factory that produced its twisted intelligence. And the AI's enemies will follow it to the bitter end. Their very sanity and a possible war, depend on it.

Book Description: This book is a story about ordinary people in extraordinary times and how 1,000 people came to a small country town to work at a factory where they made secret equipment which was vital, and helped to win the war. Very few of these people voluntarily worked at the factory. It was wartime and many regulations were in force controlling labour and where people worked. I was a victim of these regulations as I had completed my education but could not follow my chosen career but was directed to work in this country factory. Where did these people who had been directed to work at the factory live? Some large Country Houses had been converted to hostels which accommated some, but the majority were billeted in houses in the town. A Billeting Officer visited every household and where room was available, then that household had to accommodate one or maybe two workers. Not all liked this idea! Many hundreds of workers were directed to this small town with no social amenities, to work in a factory doing work not of their choosing and many living in accommodation where they were not wanted. Imagine this happening today! Most of my readers have the good fortune never to have been in a war, because we have had in this country the longest unbroken peace since Worl War 2 ended. Now because the way we work has changed so dramatically in the last 20 years, most of my readers will not have worked in a factory - an office or a call centre is much more likely. For these readers, I have tried to explain what war meant to ordinary people in 1940, and what life working in this factory was all about.
