Multiple renditions of the near-future are explored--in all their terror, excitement, and wonder--as one family member traces what happened to her parents and siblings.
It’s a near-future Age of Abundance. The pace of technological innovation is exploding to satisfy all human needs. All is good, right? Except for when the planetary Ubermind decides to kill you.
(note: The original version is suitable for ages 16 and over. This YA version would be rated PG-13 if this were a movie.)
