Becca Wilde, a terminally ill teenage autistic savant, senses a presence—an intelligence—in The STREAM, the virtual reality entertainment phenomenon created by her tech-billionaire father.
She believes the intelligence can create a cure, but her father intends to use radical technology. They are running out of time.
Then technology stops working. All of it.
No Internet. No screens. Not even cars. But one thing is working—a Russian A.I. that mutated—and is now In the Wild.
Becca may hold the key to the future. Any future. If there is going to be one.
But…only if she can communicate with a super-intelligence—that hasn’t been invented yet.
"How you explore foreseeable future scenarios goes beyond entertainment. Such important exploration is essential for all of us to ride this exponentially shifting reality."
"A very intense start to the narrative. I felt cold, desperate, afraid, and rooting for Becca. The staccato style and choppy sentences are interesting and reflect something like chattering teeth and freezing."
