Once upon a time, in the near future, things were going well for software codemonkey & Machine Intelligence researcher Eddie Cartridge – gainfully employed, happy relationship, and a bright future ahead.
Unfortunately, he made the mistake of coming to the attention of a particularly unpleasant piece of software. Now, he’s an internationally wanted man, paralysed after a disastrous misstep with a neuro-enhancing hallucinogen known as The Deathline, and some shady characters are dragging him down a dark corridor, towards a blindingly bright room.
Meanwhile, his former partner is rediscovering her taste for the rush of The ‘Line, while introducing mortality to a great many Machine Intelligences at her employer, in pursuit of an answer to the question “Where’s Eddie?”.
This is the conclusion to Surfing The Deathline.
