Product Description

Your world is manipulated by computer coding, search engines and social networks. It’s just a matter of time before everything you watch, read and listen to will be created by autonomous machines.

An Android Awakes : The struggle for survival and the fate of a story teller.

In the future some of us will become great writers, renowned artists, visionary filmmakers and talented photographers. Most of us though will just have more sex.
Go forward a few more generations and none of us are creative save that of our procreation. Our culture is shaped by machines. The novel has become a mere 1000 words.

Android Writer PD121928 is part of the Android Publishing Programme. To replicate their idea of a writer’s life, his partner has been forcibly removed and he lives in solitude with an allowance for drugs and prostitutes.
He also has just had his novel The Eating of Citizen Kane rejected. He has 14 more attempts to get a novel accepted for the humans by the Programme or he will be deactivated.

Can one of his characters and their story save him?
