NuLogic: Rise of the Neos

Bill Gourgey. Jacked Arts, $19.95 paper (530p) ISBN 978-0-9797435-5-9
In this sequel to Glide, world order is disintegrating as the sinister Dr. Jeneuf prepares to launch a virus that will enable him to reshape humanity to his wishes. Vibrant teens Mike and Maddy reappear from Glide to explore young love and fight evil, along with Maddy's computer super-genius friend Lisa. The inept ruling Authorities prove powerless against Jeneuf's machinations, choosing instead to hunt down well-intentioned inventor Dr. Magigate. Jeneuf's Neology, a variant of virtual reality, enmeshes players in a scheme where created reality becomes more interesting than its everyday counterpart. Gourgey provides a devastating satirical portrayal of online gamers, and an alarming vision of the potentialities of a world where privacy is a vanished concept. Satire and technology merge in this fascinating and thought-provoking adventure tale that, despite occasional preachiness, also offers serious reflections on the potential darker aspects of our ever-increasing subjection to the yoke of e-everything.
