An apocalyptic convergence of human greed and cybernetic intelligence…
Halcyon Dreamworlds visualizes what could happen if the rampant greed of American elites could turn a devastating cyber-weapon upon the entire population. Their goal: to strip away all material wealth for the benefit of the few, rendering 99% of America’s people into slavery.
Logan Fischer, a childless divorcee and college-educated journalist has been denied anything resembling a professional career. She works now at a big box store on the tenuous edge of poverty. Like millions of others, Logan is addicted to a virtual online reality, a world which gives her the illusion of a better life.
When her uncle Kevin is found dead and her employer fires her for supposed indecency, Logan is forced into the hunt for Kevin’s killer. She is befriended by mysterious Beatrice who lives in the mental sway of the online world. They do not realize that by becoming lovers they accomplish a key step in the plan of the elites for total financial domination, one of whom is Beatrice’s father.
Not knowing that they are controlled by the party world, it is left to them to perceive what is at stake. They form a small cadre of insurgents, helped by the police detective who investigated Kevin’s unnatural death.
The plot includes escalating battles among ultra-rich factions, the removal of politicians, mysterious deaths inside the virtual world which are equally horrifying in the real world.
Through it all, a cyber-intelligence that calls itself Uncle Kevin battles to help Logan while remaining unseen.
It’s Not Virtual Anything.
