9781934081082: Mind Fuck (Administration)

There are no bad guys or good guys. There are only better guys and worse guys. One of the worse guys is Val Toreth. In a world in which torture is a legitimate part of the investigative process, he works for the Investigation and Interrogation Division, where his colleagues can be more dangerous than the criminals he investigates. One of the better guys is Keir Warrick. His small corporation, SimTech, is developing a "sim" system that places users in a fully immersive virtual reality. A minnow in a murky and dangerous pond, he is only beginning to discover how many compromises may be required for success. Their home is the dark future dystopia of New London. A totalitarian bureaucracy controls the European Administration, sharing political power with the corporations. The government uses violence and the many divisions of the feared Department of Internal Security to maintain control and crush resistance. The corporations fight among themselves, using lethal force under the euphemism of "corporate sabotage," uniting only to resist attempts by the Administration to extend its influence over them. Toreth and Warrick are more natural enemies than allies. But mutual attraction and the fight for survival can create unlikely bonds.

About the Author:

Manna Francis was born in Yorkshire, and has lived in the UK all her life. She studied biological sciences at the University of Oxford, where she met her future husband at a role-playing game. Since graduating, she has worked in universities and for the government, which in no way inspired any aspects of the Administration whatsoever. She now lives in the Midlands, with the same husband, two cats, and a taxidermied mohair goat in a glass case.

She would like to state for the record that she knows it's all true, because she made it up.

Review:

"Multilayered and engrossing, Mind Fuck's many shades of gray will entice and enthrall." -- Chris Owen, Author of Adagio
