Description

Dante Cubit and the Entropy Kid attempt a bank raid in Beerlight - the city where killing a man is less a murder than a mannerism, where false arrest is a moral duty. Moving effortlessly and seamlessly from real world to virtual reality we follow Dante in his efforts to steal the last book by rabble rouser and street philosopher extraordinaire Eddie Gamete. Meanwhile outside the bank, Blince, the local police chief, has closed down the area and deployed demographic cannon. Fortunately he doesn't realise that he has not left a virtual reality training site. Unfortunately Dante doesn't realise he is in the wrong bank. In a world where guns only shoot those who are asking for it and time locks propel you forward to a place where you've already been arrested, nothing is certain.show more
