About Analog/Virtual

‘Analog/Virtual and Other Simulations of Your Future’ is a sci-fi book published in 2020. Set in Apex City (previously known as Bengaluru), this book imagines a world run by corporations. Here, technology is the key to survival, productivity is power, and the most noble goal in life is success. With the right image, values and opinions, you can ascend to the ranks of the Virtual elite and have the new world at your feet. The price of failure is deportation: you are marked an Analog, with no access to electricity, running water or your humanity.
