Description

Welcome to the fractured future, at the dusk of the 21st century. Earth has a population of roughly a billion, living in a preserve at the bottom of a gravity well. Young Huw, technophobic, misanthropic, has been selected for Tech Jury Service, a task he does his best to perform despite an itchy technovirus, the apathy of the proletariat, and some truly awful moments on bathroom floors.
