There’s a new “Man in the Moon”—and the corporations exploiting Mother Earth are in for an ugly surprise.
Phil Hunter has just discovered the invention of the age—working antigravity—when he’s laid off from his job, the entire department shut down. Phil decides this is what he’s been waiting for—a chance to become fabulously wealthy with his own company, Anti-Gravity Unlimited. With anti-gravity, not only is space flight a cheap possibility, perpetual motion is also possible. With a couple of anti-gravity rods, it’s easy to hook up a generator and create unlimited electrical current. All of mankind’s environmental problems are solved—as are any issues with poverty. Phil sees a new utopia—until his house is blown up and all of his former co-workers are listed as killed in the paper.
On the run, Phil heads for his best friend’s house, only to discover that his best friend has abandoned his long-time girlfriend (and clone)—where a hitman disguised as a bag lady tries to gun both of them down. Together, Phil and Nikki try to figure out how to stay alive for long enough to mass produce enough anti-gravity rods to allow him to start his business. Still, where on earth can they hide if the entire world corporate government is after them?
Author Duncan Long creates an intriguing dystopic future where corporations have taken over the government and are gradually replacing workers with robots, forcing the masses into poverty.
