Literary sci-fi about revolutionary techlogy Join, which allows minds to unite their consciousness but may be blinding the world to its horrific reality. Chance and Leap are confronted by a remorseless killer who manipulates the networks that regulate life in the post-Join world. Join's promise of living multiple lives, perfect companionship and immortality has hidden the reality of an environmentally-ravaged North America and an underground community of 'ferals' left behind by the rush of techlogy. Steve Toutonghi's writing warns us of a dark future.
A native of Seattle, Steve Toutonghi studied fiction and poetry while completing a BA in Anthropology at Stanford. After various professional forays, he began a career in technology that led him from Silicon Valley back to Seattle. Join is his first novel.
