AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It is the 26th century. Zetting is the process of debugging a computer system by inserting a needle into one's skull and navigating the computer's circuits with one's consciousness. Zetting is addictive and dangerous, but a huge rush. Alfred is a zetter. He lives and works on the run-down Florida Station, a space station orbiting Jupiter, controlled by the Solar Solutions Corporation. Alfred uncovers evidence of a conspiracy during a zet. It leads him down a path that will endanger everything he holds dear as he figures out what is going wrong on Florida Station. Draz is a scavenger on a destroyed Earth ruled over by the Collective Zone. She becomes caught up in a civil war that has raged for decades after she finds an ancient hard drive, while scavenging, that contains important plans. To put things right she has to fight for her survival in a hostile Solar System. Artisius, the captain of the merchant ship Green Dragon, must negotiate a passage between Solar Solutions and the Collective Zone, which are in a state of cold war. He is trying to make a not so honest living. Never underestimate the power, and the danger, of hope.' (Publication summary)
