Most people familiar with computers will know the relevance of the Escape function, such as the Esc button on a keyboard or the X symbol in the corner of a window. It is a quick way of coming out of whatever program is currently running, and abandoning it entirely.
But what happens when you abandon ALL programs?
Nowadays, we all rely on the internet. Our ability to communicate, find information and perform tasks all now depend on being online. Losing internet access is almost as disabling as losing a physical sense like vision or hearing – it denies you a whole world of experience.
In the digital future of the Auto Series, when everyone relies on their auto, is it even possible to escape? Will it feel like you are abandoning your entire life? Who exactly are you, when your auto is taken away?
For those who have been following this series, here are all the covers for the eight stories that make up Auto 2. The cover for the novel itself will be revealed soon!
Auto 2 continues the Auto Series which looks at how digital technology and social media will evolve in the near future. Find out more about the Auto Series.
Auto is available in multiple eBook formats and Auto 2 will be published later in 2015.
