Hallucinatory cyberpunk. Meta sci-fi satire. The future is futile. 2083. Meme seeks revenge in Japan and later Mexico, where he is contacted by someone he assumes has been dead for years. Rinchi continues her role as a MercSecure representative, starting first in Baghdad, where she runs into an old foe. Desiring more control over the destiny of the nation, Sauria goes to extreme lengths to intimidate a rival and solidify his power. The hunt is on. Part techno thriller, part dystopian science fiction, Life is a Beautiful Thing is a series that questions what it means to be human; a collection of novels that offers a shocking glimpse into a dark future fueled by corporate deceit and high-end intoxicants.

From the Author:

The writing journey that has accumulated in the Life is a Beautiful Thing series began with Nanowrimo in 2011. While on its surface the series may seem shocking - both through its imagery and through its usage of multiple languages, vulgarities, violence, sexual orientations and seemingly random hallucinatory passages - weeks upon weeks were put into the conceptualization of this series. While some words may seem invented, they're not. While some concepts may seem over the top, many are heavily grounded in reality. What the book really is, if I can say as much, is a graphic, sexually-charged, gory way to begin a discussion on machine-learning. Yes, we are a wa's off from singularity, but that doesn't mean the topic won't become increasingly relevant as we press forward into the future.

In Life is a Beautiful Thing I hope to capture everything from the hallucinatory prose of Hunter S. Thompson, to the techno-irony of Philip K. Dick and Vonnegut, to the sheer literary abandon of Henry Miller and William S. Burroughs and the genre-neutral works of David Mitchell and Karen Russell. If I succeed even halfway in this endeavor I consider it a triumph. Thank you for taking the time to read this and get ready for the ride of your life.

'This book will make you want to read the entire series.' - Amazon reviewer 

'Crazy, funky, mind-boggling view of a whacked out future.' - Amazon reviewer
