The Pystead Singularity
by James Pryor
In 2042, cognitive scientist and armchair philosopher Philip Russell joins The Pystead Group that is planning to live aboard huge ships, seasteading. He accepts their technical and political secrets as necessary to evade a dystopian era. When world politics lead to no right-of-return for any seasteader, suddenly he must meld heart and mind if he is to stay with his new fiancée and friends.
