Description

Let's Ride into a Psychedelic Hell two hundred years from now.

Hang out with your favourite dead legend. Spend your entire life addicted to hyperreal home entertainment. Never talk to anyone real. No friends, no family. So what. A life spent tripping on smart acid means that nobody really cares any more.

But a revolution is coming. And They will save humanity from an extinction of the mundane.

This world without childhoods; post nuclear London Town underground, 23rd Century VoQue ephemera obsession. Don't talk to real people, Alexandra Brontay. Don't go looking for love. But Lexie does, Lexie still believes in real.

Brontay's split soul is about to become the lynchpin of the coming war fought by nano-machines within synthetic biological systems, the mainframe of power within a real world that is indistinguishable from artificial intelligence and the hyperreal.

But when MannyCapra, CEO of The Company, needs a spot of agitprop to stem his boredom, he'll go to any length to entertain those who plot against him. After 250 years on this earth, he is so ready for a bit of fun.
