On the skids in
the transhuman future
is a young man barely a century old. He has lived long enough to see the cure for
death and the end of scarcity, to learn ten languages and compose three
symphonies—and to realize his boyhood dream of taking up residence in Disney
World, the greatest artistic achievement of the long-ago twentieth century, is under
the care of a network of “ad-hocs” who keep the classic attractions running as
they always have, enhanced with only the smallest high-tech touches.
though, the ad-hocs are under attack. A new group has taken over the Hall of
the Presidents and is replacing its venerable audioanimatronics with new,
immersive, direct-to-brain interfaces that give guests the illusion of being
Washington, Lincoln, and all the others. For Jules, this is an attack on the
artistic purity of Disney World itself.
And what’s worse is that it appears this new group has had Jules killed. This upsets him. It’s only his
fourth death and revival, after all. Now it’s war. Download and start listening now!
