Overview

“The wires were not as unpleasant as I had imagined. A slight pinch as each of the ten tentacles went in, a bizarre drawing sensation as they fought to find purchase in a vein, seeking them out with a terrifying sentience, each one like a sharp little mouth. Once they were inserted, Sasha told me to lie back and relax. I thought for a moment that the machine wasn’t working, but suddenly there was a blinding flash of white before my eyes—

And I was there.”

After a century of sleep Briana wakes up alone, naked, terrified and seared with blue flame. Once she had been part of a great and wise population, known by humans as fairies, elves or angels. They were explained away in folk stories, made tiny and inconsistent. None of the stories grasped their true power, their ultimate purpose.

But that was a lifetime ago. Now the fae have been extinguished, brought down by petty mortal disease as the earth itself sickened and failed. Briana believes her kin are all dead, but another has survived. Amid the filth and desperation of a human tent city her brother Jinx has set himself up as a god, pushing Total World Immersion upon the miserable population. If you can imagine it, you can programme it and actually feel as if you are there. A city, a garden, a vast ship sailing the ocean. Anything is possible. TWI technology has both revolutionised and divided the modern world. Some think TWI is evil. They worry that humanity will never want to venture forth into the real world again, not when the realms of the imagination are so much richer. But Jinx argues that these people have nothing left to venture into. Will Briana join Jinx in what she sees as a betrayal of their own kind and their love of the earth, or will she walk away from her only kin and forge her own path in this terrifying new world?

The Lost Fae Realms is a short story by the author of Jinn Nation.
