PhD student Dylan Cashew abandons his thesis on D. H. Lawrence for the uncertain world of top secret aerospace editing, college teaching and then independent publishing. Dogged and even mentored by Lawrence and others from parallel Dimensions, Dylan finds himself immersed in a publishing venture that, with aid of his PR-savvy wife, interjections from the Internet, and a bottomless supply of scotch, nearly goes under before he receives an offer from a Chinese conglomerate that may be too good to refuse.

If you're an author, published or unpublished, or wished you were one – or someone who's worked in publishing, or wished you could – this book is for you. (Have we missed anyone?!)

This is David P Reiter's latest sortie into the satiricsphere of digital narrative. His having won two Western Australian Premier's Awards with Timelord Dreaming and My Planets Reunion Memoir has done nothing to curb his rash flirtation with innovation. Nearly 200 "internet call-outs" will tempt you away from the central storyline. Can you resist?

By the two-time Winner of the Western Australian Premier's Award.
