Freenet: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!*
A nuanced story about artificial intelligence and digital immortality, Freenet plunges listeners into the far future, when humans have closed distances in time and space through wormhole tunnels between interplanetary colonies. Consciousness has been digitized, and cybersouls uploaded to a near omniscient data matrix in a world where information is currency, and the truth belongs to whoever has the greatest bandwidth.
When Simara Ying crash-lands on the desert planet Bali, she finds herself trapped in a cave-dwelling culture with no social network for support. Her rescuer, Zen Valda, is yanked into a new universe of complications he can scarcely grasp and into an infinite network of data he never knew existed. When brash V-net anchorman Roni Hendrik starts investigating how Simara became the subject of an interplanetary manhunt, he finds a dangerous emergence in the network that threatens all human life.
Freenet is an exciting new novel about the power of information, as well as the strength of love, in a post-digital age.

“Freenet is a nonstop, furiously paced story that takes the reader on a fascinating journey from deep space to artificial intelligence to the primordial history of the human species.” (Robert Charles WIlson, award-winning author of The Affinities and Spin)
