Description

In the tradition of Robert A. Heinlein's "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress", but with a healthy dose of cyberpunk, "Radio Freefall" is about a plot to take over the Earth by power-mad, sociopathic, computer-geek, billionaire Walter Cheeseman. It's up to a strange cast of rock stars and oddballs to stop him.To thwart the takeover, the orbitals and the moon colonies secede from Earth. Aqualung, a mysterious blues musician who also has superhuman tech skills, might be the catalyst for the resistance - or he might just be the pawn of artificial intelligences. And then something like the Singularity happens, but no one is quite sure.show more
