Free (Kindle) We Are Such Stuff by R. M. Dorn [Sci-Fi Virtual Reality Technothriller]

We Are Such Stuff by R. M. Dorn is her standalone science fiction technothriller taking place in a virtual reality-enhanced world, starring a new employee with a job of dreaming virtual reality scenes, who discovers that the technology may actually have odd real world effects rewriting the past, in addition to having potentially damaging and fatal side effects causing an epidemic in its users, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press' Venture imprint.

This is one of their original publications by a newer author.

Currently free @ Amazon (available to Canadians & in the UK and pretty much everywhere else Amazon sells worldwide, since this is being done via their KDP Select exclusive-or-else program)

Description
Is this the real life…?

Just at the point that Daisy is starting to feel the inertia of her life, she receives an extraordinary job offer: creating scenes for virtual reality games… by dreaming them.

She is, however, unaware that there is increasing concern over the safety of the equipment – the Personal Optical Device, or POD – that gamers use. Several deaths, a growing incidence of psychosis and many users reporting unpleasant symptoms associated with the POD are starting to make people suspicious.

When the disturbing news reaches the family-run manufacturers, Sim-Fab Global, most of the board opt to ignore the warning signs.

But then, one evening, they make an astonishing discovery…

Can the past be changed by dreaming?

What is reality and who controls it?

As Daisy becomes more involved in the family and the work, she realises that their discovery has a dark and dangerous potential. She must keep one step ahead of the others, to prevent an epidemic of deaths and the inevitable collapse of Sim-Fab.

This fast-paced sci-fi thriller resonates as a game in itself, whilst challenging conventional theories of time and reality, and posing the question: are we really here…

…or is this just fantasy?
