Worlds and classes collide in a cyberpunk novel exploring addiction, identity, the illusion of choice, and the dark side of utopia.
Every waking moment of Noah’s life is consumed with thoughts of Aimless, each cartridge a neon-blue storm of distilled ecstasy that lifts him out of the filth and squalor of the Crep.
In fleeing Elysium, humanity’s temple to onanism, for its dismal crepidoma, Noah escaped the social hierarchy orchestrated by the megacity’s inscrutable AI overseer, but he cannot escape Key-Reigh Industries. On the surface, KRI is known for providing the modern conveniences that make life easy—bionic augmentations, designer drugs, robotic servants—but the denizens of the Crep know better.
Whenever Noah runs out of Aimless and the funds to buy more, he is forced to aid them in their ceaseless quest to pillage the far horizons of scientific knowledge by offering himself as a lab rat to them. Each visit to the research center brings him one step closer to Drowning, but he can't quit.
He is teetering on the edge when a brush with KRI’s lone scion, Laura Key, gives him a way to break the cycle of mind shattering Hard Kicks. She can provide him with an endless supply of Aimless, but to stop his death spiral, he needs to return to Elysium, find Laura, and turn her against her father before his stash runs out, and he succumbs to the fatal effects of Aimless withdrawal.
