A gripping alternate history where the Japanese Empire rules over America with huge robots, and subversive videogames are the only way to feel free Japan won the Second World War. Americans worship their infallible Emperor, and nobody believes that Japan's conduct in the war was anything but exemplary. Nobody, that is, except the George Washingtons - a group of rebels fighting for freedom. Their latest terrorist tactic is to distribute an illegal video game that asks players to imagine what the world might be like if the United States had won the war instead. Captain Beniko Ishimura's job is to censor video games, and he's tasked with getting to the bottom of this disturbing new development. But Ishimura's discovered that the case of the George Washingtons is more complicated than it seems, and the subversive videogame's origins are even more controversial and dangerous than the censors originally suspected. * Author's previous novel, Bald New World, was longlisted for the Folio Prize * Will appeal to fans of alternate histories, video games, Japanese mecha anime and fans of Neal Stephenson's Reamde
