Description

An anarchist online group sets out to assassinate the corporate elites they believe have turned culture into a digital nightmare.

Don Barton is the creator of Greenhouse, a popular immersive game where millions play at “saving the environment” in the surreal landscapes of the metaverse. Now retired to his plutocratic wealth, he learns his teen son, a gifted gamer, has suddenly gone missing, having joined a terrorist group led by a mysterious young woman, Eris, a former cryptocurrency trader. She’s on a mission to destroy the world’s entertainment and social media platforms and assassinate the corporate elites who run them.

In desperation, Barton roams Greenhouse, the only place his radicalized son will talk to him, learning that the game — his life’s work — is on the digital hit list. And both his life and his son’s are in danger.

Gaudet fuses the cyber savvy of Black Mirror with the literary edge of Don DeLillo, delivering a thrilling portrait of a culture gone senseless from digital addiction — and the violence spurred by those fears.

Advance Praise

"Larry Gaudet’s Eris is timely and important, a blistering look at what our online and offline lives have devolved into at the hands of our corporate tech overlords and their lackeys in government."
— ROBERT J. SAWYER, Hugo Award-winning author

"A masterful and timely exploration of the convergence of the digital and the material. One moment, the two appear irreconcilable; the next they’re indistinguishably and enticingly identical. In Eris, Larry Gaudet offers a priceless glimpse into a neurologically challenged humanity and the deeply troubling future we are destined to face." — PETER CAVELTI, author of A Dangerous Remedy
