Clabe Polkabout this book: In a far dystopian time, interhuman contact is strongly discouraged and strictly controlled. In fact, everything is controlled by computers through intracranial implants. Everything has become controlled efficiency; every task and every moment of an individual's time is tracked and continual time management feedback is provided. People sleep in shifts. Verbal conversation is virtually non-existent; limited virtual conversation is allowed. All sex has become virtual. All dead bodies are recycled into food pellets and re-fed to the population. All disease has been eradicated and consigned to ancient history.
Derek 100771 is a rebel. Derek is willing to risk correction, mandatory re-education, or even recycling for a little human contact. Surreptitiously, he makes tentative verbal contact with a construction worker who reluctantly tells him a little about the project where he works. Just another construction project, at a site like many others.
Or is it? A construction accident. A chance discovery. Suddenly, a completely new paradigm appears. Perhaps there is hope after all.
