418: I Am a Teapot is a near-future dystopian science fiction novel that explores a world where people by choice, birth, or punishment, relinquish the rights to their physical body. Their brains exist in a constantly-connected virtual interface where they enjoy a fantasy world of endless indulgences. However, while their minds have fun, their bodies are controlled by implants doing the filthiest and most dangerous jobs known to humanity.
Stripped of their identities, these dredges of society are simply called staff and they are disposable. But what happens when a staff becomes cognizant of its situation and tries to break free?
When staff number 418’s physical body is broken, he must come to terms with reality before a kangaroo court determines his fate. Will an unlikely friendship save 418 from permanent retirement?
“418’s journey is one of enlightenment and introspection as he struggles with his desire to join in on a society that oppresses him and manipulates the working class. A rallying cry against the status quo, you’ll squirm as you compare 418: I Am a Teapot to the current world we live in. A must-read novel for our times in the spirit of Aldous Huxley and George Orwell.”
