For the first time, this controversial work of “faction” (an avant-garde literary form that resolves both fact and fiction into an inseparable whole) is available in complete, unabridged, and uncensored form exclusively on Kindle Direct Publishing through Amazon.

Readers can expect to find plentiful references to a panoply of prominent members of the Silicon Valley establishment, alongside American and world political leaders, Hollywood celebrities, pop stars, corporate mascots, fictional entities, virtual assistants, and other notable writers, directors, scholars, social media influencers, deities, angels, and demons.
