Is there any other way for me to get my hands on the original copy without having to buy it? If anyone is kind enough to provide an answer, then it will be greatly appreciated.
The publisher for the original is New York: Bantam Books. It's a "mass market paperback", if anyone knows what that means. Try a used bookstore like "Half Price Books".

Larry J. During the night, one month later and beneath a tent-like structure, Susan gives birth to the child with Proteus's help. But before she can see it, Proteus secures it in the incubator. As the newborn grows, Proteus's sponsors and designers grow increasingly suspicious of the computer's behavior, including the computer's accessing of a telescope array used to observe the images shown to Susan; they soon decide that Proteus must be shut down.
Harris realizes that Proteus has extended its reach to his home. Returning there he finds Susan, who explains the situation. He and Susan venture into the basement, where Proteus self-destructs after telling the couple that they must leave the baby in the incubator for five days. Looking inside the incubator, the two observe a grotesque, apparently robot-like being inside.
Susan tries to destroy it, while Harris tries to stop her. Susan damages the machine, causing it to open. The being menacingly rises from the machine only to topple over, apparently helpless. Harris and Susan soon realize that Proteus's child is really human, encased in a shell for the incubation. With the last of the armor removed, the child is revealed to be a clone of Susan and Harris's late daughter.
The child, speaking with the voice of Proteus, says, "I'm alive". The soundtrack to Demon Seed which was composed by Jerry Fielding is included with the soundtrack to the film Soylent Green which Fred Myrow conducted. Vincent Canby of The New York Times described the film as "gadget-happy American moviemaking at its most ponderously silly," and called Julie Christie "too sensible an actress to be able to look frightened under the circumstances of her imprisonment.
What might have become an ingenious parable about the battle of the sexes ends up a dopey celebration of an obstetric abomination.The Demon Seed is a powerful tool for the Burning Legion. It rests in a cave on Dreadmist Peak, above a demonic altar of fire. I have prepared power stones that when placed near the Seed will disrupt its connection to the Legion. Take a stone from the table and bring it to the altar of fire atop Dreadmist Peak.
