Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 125787540X, Paperback)What would you be like if you could do anything you wanted and feared no punishment? This is a futuristic Earth. Drugs are a commonplace amusement and unemployment is a capital crime. Freemocracy camps exist for those who make trouble, and most of us try and escape the boredom of our lives in a common virtual world called the Sim. Like the rest of us, Marcellus is just an ordinary. But one day, he finds a magical token. A whole new world opens up. It's a world he was never supposed to see. There are specials. They eat real food. There are the wide, cavernous halls of the White House where the strings of Empire are expertly pulled. Later on, Marcellus is banished to the lunar territories. It is there that he meets the infamous general, Munib the Magnificent, the Shadow of God on Earth. It is amidst the peaceful silence and strange beauty of Luna that he is finally able to resolve the conflict simmering inside. He returns to earth. But does he really set things right? Is it even in his power?
