A group of scientists managed to build the first working model of organic mental teleportation, the HASAMAT (Hyper-Spatial Mind Transporter), the racing car to run the roads of the Universe. Volunteers are needed to test the invention. Until that time there had been gimcrack prototypes which only worked with the synthetic minds of Inanimates. But UÌGO is real and decides to lend his brain for the testing of the HASAMAT. When offered an interstellar transfer as the world’s first "intergalactic reporter-explorer", he agrees. UÌGO’s mind travels faster than light to take up residence in the minds of a far distant planet but the unexpected results of the experiment mean UIGO will continue to borrow and lend brains from now to infinity.

About the Author

Maria Pellegrini, writing under the pen-name Lavirrealista, has been an indie publisher since 2010, exploring on the theme of technology and society of the future. “Virrealism” is the underlying concept of her work. Virrealism transforms reality into virtuality and vice versa thus taking us well beyond virtual reality. She has now written two books (Real Virtualites 2011, Change of State - First Phase 2016) and six short stories which explore different aspects of possible future technological development. Trained as a geologist and environmental scientist, she specialised in GIS technology and worked for many years in the industry, later becoming editor in chief of a technical magazine. Her scientific training ensures that the science in science fiction is not lost.

I suoi lavori esplorano il tema della tecnologia e della società del futuro. Ha definito lei stessa “Virrealismo” il tema di base dei suoi lavori. Il Virrealismo trasforma la realtà in virtualità e viceversa andando così ben oltre la realtà virtuale. Ha pubblicato in inglese e in italiano un romanzo breve, “Virtualità Reali”, una collezione di racconti, “Racconti Dalla Galassia Madre” e un racconto lungo, “Guerriera per Caso”. Quest'ultimo fa parte del nuovo romanzo, “Cambiamento di Stato Prima Fase” e ne rappresenta l'antefatto. Laureata in scienze geologiche ha ottenuto un master in scienze ambientali e in seguito ha preso altre specializzazioni tecniche. Ha lavorato per molti anni nel settore, per poi diventare redattrice di una rivista tecnica. La sua formazione scientifica assicura che la scienza nella fantascienza rimane. [Continua: ]
