Overview

In a society where names have been replaced with Unique Identifiers (UI's) and people are known by what function they fulfill and their level of access to personal information, Thirty-Eleven Journalist, Level 0 is mysteriously assigned the name "Belizaire" by the national computer system. This event heralds the beginning of a series of information glitches that fabricate a virtual profile of him as far from reality as it can possibly be. He soon discovers that everyone in Canada has been affected by the same computer snafu. Then, as suddenly as the phenomenon appears, it disappears. But did it really disappear? ...And thus begins the war of one man against his government.

Editorial Reviews

Astrid Kinn
Dissent In Real Time is a well-written, fast paced novel set not too far in the future which, at first blush, may appear simplistic in theme. In fact, this fascinating sci-fi thriller is much more complex than that. It has intrigue, mystery, suspense, yes, and it's all exciting. But there's also a sensitivity to the characters that rounds them out and makes them multi-dimensional, and a love story that is poignant and tender between Owen and Eleni.
