Bizarre shenanigans ensue in a future where the media don’t just report the news; they orchestrate it. It’s good for ratings.
(Parrish Plessis Trilogy, Book 1)
Marianne De Pierres
Genre: Science Fiction, Cyberpunk
Format: Paperback, 336 Pages
Date: 15th January 2004
At its core, the first book of the Parrish Plessis trilogy is a cyberpunk thriller (at least it starts out that way) set in a near future, dystopian Australia. A setting which is not ruled by a militaristic totalitarian regime, or even a capricious, amoral mega-corporation, but by an all-pervasive and powerful media. Not content with just reporting the news, these media organisations have taken to creating, shaping and controlling the people’s everyday reality; it’s good for ratings.
