Munroe, Jim: Everyone In Silico. v1 28 May 2008

Are you ready to upgrade to a fully modifiable and personalized reality?

In Vancouver, 2036, people are tired of the smog and the rain. They’re willing to give up a lot for guaranteed sunshine.

Don’t think about what you’re losing, think about what you’re getting — a life with no wasted hours sleeping or commuting. A life free of crime and disease. A life that ends when you want it to, not when some faceless entity decides it’s your time.

Those who don’t buy in — the poor, the old, the paranoid — have to watch as their loved ones, their friends, and their jobs leave the city. They have to watch as the latest prestige technology, Self, thoroughly transforms their world.

On the bright side, the rents have dropped. And from several strange and unexpected quarters, resistance is growing…

Offer ends soon. Take advantage of our lowest-ever financing rates to reserve a space now in the reality you can truly call your own.

Acclaim for Everyone In Silico

“Munroe drops in excellent touches — bioterrorists planting seeds, not bombs; home cloning labs — that help make Silico one of the freshest and scariest, yet most hopeful, near-future yarns in a long time.” —Time Out New York

“A fresh and amusing take on how technology can be used or misused in a consumption obsessed society . . . Those who value deft, witty SF should be well pleased.”— Publishers Weekly

“Young Toronto author Munroe proves no less inventive with his third novel than he did with his others — as he projects a future in which a global virtual reality corporation is winning the p.r. battle against those who prefer to live their lives the old way… The plot dynamics and imaginative leaps are engaging, and the care Munroe takes in examining Frisco as a full-fledged, not unattractive phenomenon also marks this as a story to be taken seriously.” — Kirkus Reviews
