It's 2027. Tokyo has survived the Mega-Quake of the Millennium and Satori Corporation, the owner of a virtual reality entertainment empire, is embroiled in cut-throat corporate warfare to preserve its market share and, incidentally, save the lives of thousands of users trapped inside its virtual worlds. All of this seems far away to Professor Frank Gobi as he strolls across the placid Berkley, California, campus - until he gets home to find his perpetually on-line ten-year-old son stuck inside Satori's virtual Gametime and literally fighting for his life.

From the Publisher:

From droids and ro-langs to a mega-Quake and The Tibetan Book of the Dead, Rim combines high-tech fact and chillingly plausible fantasy to create a cyber-venture romp in the tradition of William Gibson, Bruch Sterling, and Douglas Adams.

About the Author:

Alexander Besher was born in China to White Russian parents and raised in Japan. Based in San Francisco, he has worked as editor in chief of the Chicago Review, and contributing editor for Infoworld magazine, as well as consulting futurist in corporate scenario planning.
