ABOUT THIS BOOK
A worldwide diaspora has left a quarter of a million people at the foot of Central Station, an interplanetary hub between all things: the constantly shifting Tel Aviv; a powerful virtual arena, and the space colonies where humanity has gone to escape the ravages of poverty and war. Everything is connected by the Others, powerful alien entities who, through the Conversation—a shifting, flowing stream of consciousness—are just the beginning of irrevocable change. Cultures collide in real life and virtual reality.
The city is literally a weed, its growth left unchecked. Life is cheap, and data is cheaper. But at Central Station, humans and machines continue to adapt, thrive...and even evolve.
