This project represents three work-in-progress short stories from a larger planned collection of short speculative fiction: The Utopian Range.
In the world of the Utopian Range, the hegemonic World Government and the Intronet Corporation use the Utopian Range technology to mine the collective subconscious of its citizens for visions of the future. Our narrator, Gavin, learns that there might be more to the ideas it filters out than he expects. Told through interconnected stories simulated from Gavin’s subconscious with the help of a friendly rogue AI, this is The Matrix meets The Illustrated Man. These stories tell tales of personal rebellion and radical dreaming, and the ways they change both Gavin and the world.
