Like millions of others, Roger Birch and his family depend on ad-viewing income for their survival.
Unlike millions of others, the events of one uncomfortable evening leave Roger aware of the government's shadier reasons for investing in Funscreen. With high-definition cameras hidden behind a 60-inch glass veil, the answer was staring him in the face all along.
Every family has a Funscreen on their wall. The question is... who's watching who?
[Funscreen is a satirical/sci-fi short story of 6,500 words (approx. 22 standard pages)]
A unique take on the increasing commercialisation of home life and the apparent trend towards 24-hour surveillance, Funscreen is a standalone spin-off from the dystopian novel Sycamore.
Praise for Sycamore:
"A brilliant and relevant sci-fi from a debut author... interesting and matrix-like"
"Dystopian fans should not miss this one"
"Great idea from the author... 1984 for the Facebook generation"
