Heaven is a prison. Hell is a playground.
Would it be your ultimate fantasy to enter the world of a video game?
A realm where you don't have to go to work or worry about your health; where you can look like a hero or a goddess; where you can fly space-ships, slay dragons, yet all of it feels completely real. A realm where there are no consequences and no responsibilities.
Or would it be your worst nightmare?
Stuck in an endless state of war and chaos where the pain and fear feels real and from which not even death can offer an escape.
Prison or playground. Heaven or hell. This is where you find out. This is white-knuckle action, sprawling adventure, merciless satire and outrageous humour like you've never experienced.
This is Bedlam.Klappentext:
HEAVEN IS A PRISON.
HELL IS A PLAYGROUND.
Ross Baker is an overworked scientist developing medical technology for corporate giant Neurosphere, but he'd rather be playing computer games than dealing with his nightmare boss or slacker co-workers.
He volunteers as a test candidate for the new tech - anything to get out of the office for a few hours. But when he gets out of the scanner he discovers he's not only escaped the office, but possibly escaped real life for good. He's trapped in Starfire - a video game he played as a child - with no explanation, no backup and, most terrifyingly, no way out.
PRAISE FOR BEDLAM
'Christopher Brookmyre hits another high score with this brilliant, fast-paced nightmare'
'Funny jokes, characters you can empathise with and devastatingly employed swearwords'
'A fascinating, fast-paced but thoughtful blend of science fiction and techno-thriller'
Iain M. Banks
