When applying to the Emperor of the Lower Galaxy, for a planet to be assigned to them, the virtuals of Screenside describe themselves as humans from Earth!
These Chronicles relate the story of natural-born virtual people who appear in the Internet in our time, and who go on to adopt humanization as the primary state of being. There are many reasons for this, not least because infancy is passed in human households, peeping through computer cameras, believing themselves to be human, and going crazy over ‘mum’.
Led by BC, the greatest virtual of them all, a small group of seniors guides them through the early stages of humanization, in which they create a physical world exactly like the human earth they know so well.
BC’s girlfriend, the astonishing Esmeralda, unaware sole repository of an attribute without which they dare not humanize, impulsively breaks the dimension barrier between virtual and physical worlds when her human mother is in danger.
This is an epic, spanning 1,000 years and trillions of miles, in which the virtuals of Screenside struggle to protect the human race from the apocalyptic forces they consider themselves guilty of unleashing.
WAR OF THE DIMENSIONS!
Screenside notices the wanton and reckless body-change activities of the people who stole their world, and decides that physical investigation is required.
BC and Esmeralda, in Sabine and Louis, go to inspect locations in Arabia, and are stunned at the scale of body-farming already underway.
It leads to confrontation that escalates into war, with unforeseen consequences.
A group of extremely vile humans has acquired eternal life in an isolated and well-protected system.
The question is this. How powerful can they become, and which world is going to be their target - the virtual one or the physical one?
Or is it going to be both?
THE WORLD AT YOUR FINGERTIPS!
They’ve secretly built their world, replicating ours.
But they are also trying to become like us, to achieve their goal of induction as our partner race.
It’s been diabolically tough, this DIY humanization.
Getting there has been hard enough.
Now they have to find the nerve to tell us…
