distant future exploring the effects and uses of virtual reality via direct
neural interface implants from the perspective of teenagers.......

Candle: by John Barnes....a sequel of sorts to" Kaleidoscope Century".....of
extropian interest is the reference to a "War of the Memes'. Memes having
attributes similar to that mentioned by well as similarities
