Games & Fate
Bill Gourgey, author

Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

 

From silicon germs to digitized souls, the future is here…

Read book two of the Beverly Hills Book Award Winning Glide Trilogy, a mesmerizing tale of love, loss, and second chances. Set in a future filled with dazzling and perilous inventions, the trilogy has been read more than 6,000,000 times on Wattpad, received a starred review from Publishers Weekly (book 2), and has been queried for a future motion picture.

In Games & Fate the real world loses its luster, giving way to rich augmentations until a wildly popular role-playing game—driven by its own set of neo-commandments—governs everyday life. As the line between real and virtual vanishes, an unlikely alliance of teens and outcasts offers humanity its only hope.

 

*** Formerly known as Nu Logic (1st Edition)

Reviews
In this sequel to Glide, world order is disintegrating as the sinister Dr. Jeneuf prepares to launch a virus that will enable him to reshape humanity to his wishes. Vibrant teens Mike and Maddy reappear from Glide to explore young love and fight evil, along with Maddy's computer super-genius friend Lisa. The inept ruling Authorities prove powerless against Jeneuf's machinations, choosing instead to hunt down well-intentioned inventor Dr. Magigate. Jeneuf's Neology, a variant of virtual reality, enmeshes players in a scheme where created reality becomes more interesting than its everyday counterpart. Gourgey provides a devastating satirical portrayal of online gamers, and an alarming vision of the potentialities of a world where privacy is a vanished concept. Satire and technology merge in this fascinating and thought-provoking adventure tale that, despite occasional preachiness, also offers serious reflections on the potential darker aspects of our ever-increasing subjection to the yoke of e-everything.
