By Andy Briggs
CONTROL S is a race-against-time speculative thriller set in the very near future, where the world of virtual reality has taken a dark turn. For fans of Ready Player One and The End of the World Running Club.
Everyone knows crime is a major problem in the virtual reality world of SPACE. And the smarter criminals realised long ago that to fully exploit people in the VR, they need to hunt the vulnerable in the real world.
So when his troubled mother disappears one day, VR-obsessed Theo knows that to save her life he must first track her down in SPACE.
But how do you solve a mystery in a world without fingerprints or DNA, where people go to actively hide from real life?
Theo has done it in video games his whole life. But this time things are about to get very real . . .
Andy is a screenwriter, graphic novelist, author, traveller and conservationist. He's worked on many film projects, from Hollywood movies with the likes of Stan Lee to his current critically acclaimed independent movie, Crowhurst. He has also written dozens of children's books, including the centennial reimagining of Tarzan. He lives just west of cyberspace with two cats.
