What’s a computer geek to do? This ain’t no MMORPG!
Arthur Bible, computer programmer and routine geek, had a normal
life. But when his best pal Galen’s ex-girlfriend drops in from
another dimension and shatters a simple after-work dinner with
bullets, fists, and bodies flying in epic Hollywood proportions .
. . well, life stopped being quite so normal.
It turns out that his pal has a past undreamed of. He has the
ability to ‘fold’ physical laws from one dimension to the next and
has made more than a few enemies—besides his former fiancée
Lian—who are looking to settle scores.
Thus begins a chase that drags Arthur, Galen and Lian through
modern Manhattan and three fantastic parallel Earths: one of
zeppelins, chi-powered martial arts and steam-driven robots;
another with magicians, sword-wielding nobility and elemental
riverboats; the third with fantastic super-science and fascist
Worse yet, Arthur discovers that Nexus, the shadowy
inter-dimensional organization seeking to kill them might actually
be the lesser of two evils!
