Reality is relative.


Underground Reviews 2015 Top Pick Award

“Whoa.. I was not expecting the twists and turns of this book.” 

“Tony Bertausky has the imagination of a Stephen King on speed.” 

“A beautifully crafted story.” 

“This book was amazing!” 

 “A rare writer who keeps you thinking long after you’ve finished reading.”

Nix Richards nearly died in a car accident when he was young. Biomites saved his life. The Halfskin Laws decree a human composed of 50% biomites is no longer human. Halfskins are shutdown. It’s not called murder, merely deactivation.

Jamie wants to be a halfskin. Her life has become dull and pointless. First she needs to avoid a shutdown. There is a way.

Fabbers, slabbers and fakies were dehumanizing slurs for fabricated humans. Bricks, however, was the People’s favorite. The Sentience Laws were created to protect the rights of bricks. They didn’t last long.
