    Smile Science Fiction Book name?

    I have been listening to Fraser Cain on Astronomy Cast. He recommends a science fiction book but none of us can hear the name of the book or the author clearly.

    It's about a person who dies. His mind gets put into computer. Then his
    clones are sent out to explore the universe. If someone can identify the reference it would be much appreciated.

    Episode 505 at 53 minutes into the show.

    The exact reference is here...

    I wish presenters like Fraser would repeat references

    Thanks.

    When I was younger I heard but didn't listen.
    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    I just searched the author on the kindle app on my phone, there's often an option to download a sample.

    On the web page https://www.amazon.com/Are-Legion-Bo...ennis+e+taylor
    There's an option on the right hand side below the price to send a free sample, at least if you are logged in there is.
    also seems to be an audible sample there to play.
