A sinister, sparkling and exciting virtual-reality adventure from the best-selling science writer and novelist Russell Stannard. 'I am proud to announce that VirtuCorp is about to produce the very best of all possible worlds . . . we are about to create a world where all will be well - the perfect world. It will be the kind of world that God ought to have created - if he had done his job properly'. With these words, Dr Harsk, MD of the multinational corporation VirtuCorp, announces the launch of their latest project - Virtutopia. Virtutopia is a new development in Inter Personal Virtual Reality. With the aid of a body sheath which harnesses and stimulates all the senses, anyone can create any world they chose - a world that can be fully experienced, right down to thoughts, feelings, colours, tastes and textures. Within Virtutopia, you can influence the fundamental laws of nature to discover what a world without pain would be like - or a world where evil is not allowed. Two children, Scott and Lucie, are chosen by VirtuCorp scientist Theodore Birkin to test out Virtutopia for themselves. But they quickly discover that worlds are rather more complicated to construct than they had ever imagined.
