Part 1 in the five-part serialization of Dreams in the Tower.
Nearly two decades ago the United States Congress unanimously passed the Corporate Freedom Act, unwittingly opening the door for Silte Corporation to begin its economic conquest of the nation and eventually the world. Now, with the corporatocratic takeover looming, demonstrators are clashing with mercenaries in the streets; and a hactivist-turned-software designer, a private police detective, a rogue research scientist, and a Silte Corp Senior Manager must decide if a Silte world is one they truly want to live in.
The debut novel of emerging speculative fiction writer Andrew Vrana, Dreams in the Tower is a fast-paced science fiction tale set in the not-too-distant future. While the story draws inspiration from the cyberpunk and hard SF traditions, its style is more literary at the core, with characters and emotions often overshadowing the futuristic technology and setting. With such diverse influences, Dreams in the Tower is a story that is sure to connect with readers both in and out of the genre.
