Synopses I Didn’t See Coming

with one comment

Eric Brown alerts me to the existence on The Demi-Monde by Rod Rees:

The Demi-Monde is a virtual reality simulation created by the American military to test their soldiers in urban warfare: it’s hell, in other words, peopled by such evil historical characters as the Nazi Reinhard Heydrich, Aleister Crowley and Stalin’s henchman Lavrentiy Beria.

Okay.

As if that set-up weren’t dark enough, the boffins up the ante by adding religious bigotry, racism and sexism.

Right.

When the president’s daughter gets lost in the simulation, jazz singer Ella Thomas is sent in to retrieve her.

WTF?
