A warrior battles hydra
The Blood Plague liquefies eyes
Ecoterrorists struggle against ecological ruin
From the pitch Abyss, Chaos corrupts our dreams
Psychnet connects human beings to Quantum Artificial Intelligences (QAI). Augmented with psyberware, people live longer, become wealthier and spend more. Increased consumption destroys habitats, pollutes the environment, and replaces natural ecosystems with those manufactured using synthetic biology. The shadow of ecological catastrophe becomes a spectre within the unconscious minds of shoppers worldwide. Will this spectre take shape in Psychnet?
The ecoterrorist organisation, The Preachers of Chaos, battle to save biodiversity on Earth and the planets corporations wish to colonise. Aboard the starship, New Hope, they shape the collective dream of those in stasis to deprogram them of avarice and egotism, and nurture a more ecocentric mindset. But their hope to establish a colony that lives harmoniously with another planet’s biosphere is threatened when a malevolent QAI emerges in Psychnet. As a synthetic plague decimates Earth’s population, the QAI seeks to corrupt the collective dream of those aboard New Hope and punish them for their ecocide.
