Verity

by Mark Bowman - £6.99  Slap-Dash Publishing (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781906407292 | ISBN 10: 1906407290

In Verity, democracy has been eclipsed. Corporations have carved up the human colonies and reign supreme. MynCorp dominates the Earth by exploiting her most valuable resource - the human subconscious. Wiring together the minds of the poor provides limitless computing power, serving MynCorp's multi-global agendas.
 
Humans are adapting to new paradigms - the elite face resurrection and reprogramming, the disenfranchised are enslaved and free thinkers become anti corporate fugitives. The paranoid and punitive nature of the corporations corrodes ambivalence and creates a new breed of freedom fighter.
 
The status quo is disturbed when an ancient presence emerges from a universe touched by the computing network. Now alien races, rebel consciences, idealist spirits and enslaved souls must find a co-operative path, and convince MynCorp to save human existence. Along the way attraction, rebellion, violence, love and greed bond and repel the main characters.
