Autonomy the Sci-Fi Novel is Published

Posted in: Uncategorized by jms on April 24, 2013

Autonomy by Jean-Michel Smith (Science Fiction, 362 pages)

When Cal Sheldon puts himself into an artificial coma and loads his mind onto the advanced computer he and his university colleagues secretly designed, he leaves behind a dying Earth and discovers new life in the world they’ve created. This breakthrough gives rise to an underground community and launches an illegal scientific renaissance. But can they stay ahead of those who would destroy them? And do they have the courage to embrace a radical plan for survival, one that might give them the freedom they seek, but could cost them their very humanity?


“Thumbs up! Very entertaining. The ideas that he proposes are absolutely fascinating … and the Base-60 system, it’s fascinating!”
Joey’s Culture Corner, TrekWest5

“Solid craftsmanship … engaging … worth the time. I found myself eager to find out what happens next.”
SF Signal

“Fast Paced … some of the best sci-fi I’ve ever read!”

“Compelling story … a skillful writer … I was immediately entranced.”
Goeff Lehr,

S3 Sexagesimal Reference Book Published

Posted in: Autonomy,S3 Sexagesimal by jean-michel on December 16, 2011

S3: The Smith Sexagesimal System

My new book, S3: The Smith Sexagesimal System, is PUBLISHED.

S3 is a companion to my upcoming novel Autonomy, which will be released in print and as an eBook in spring 2012. This is the base-60 numerical system adopted by the Autonomous Community as their “community standard sexagesimal.” S3 is also handy as a standalone reference for anyone interested in base-60 mathematics.


“Promoting a purer understanding of the relationships between space and time … 5 stars. The system is just that neat.”
-Patrick Louis,
