When Graham’s book is hacked and he loses what little respect he ever had, he must descend into the dangerous print underground in order to get it back.
Bibliotek is cyberpunk pastiche, looking at our near publishing future.
Graham ‘Gray’ Nutt is a low-rung academic, and once member of the ‘boyband’ Author group Word Play. So, when his latest book is hacked, no one takes his protestations that he’s been ‘abused and humiliated’ that seriously.
No one, that is, until ‘Freelance Bibliometricist’ Charles Emlen rescues him from an exploding building and tells him he needs his help to find a lost bound. From there they both go deep into illegal recital clubs and ransoms, chased the whole way.
But fleeing from book-hunting Librarians, and peddlers of the drug Inspiration will be nothing, when they at last come to the Black Library itself.
Note: This is a work in (advanced) progress, so it’s not yet perfect. Any feedback is more than welcome!
