a novel by
Rollo Carpenter
Few survived the Destruction. Tech did, and the life of 2072 is experienced in non.life. Remotely suspended in their nanocradles, dispersed people around the globe connect in the metaverse, building a future, embodied in bots, and imagining... together.

Virtual lovers Rai and Art, biologist and cosmologist, create, theorise and attempt to make lives real, in a time of unwanted new tensions... while Xeen blips fifty times a day, reviewing all the best non.life spaces.

Nola, ex-Versality CEO, detects a dark, near-Pluto-scale interstellar object, dangerously heading straight into the Solar System. It does not conform to known laws of physics, inducing world-changing technological accelerations and connections.

A fast-paced, hemidemisemi-humorous, invention-laden, inter-generational, time-shifting tale of dystopia determinedly heading for unexpectedly universal utopia. A near future science fiction.

About the Author
As a writer Rollo Carpenter blipped into being for this, his first novel, but Versality represents a lifetime of scientific interest, spontaneous ideas, climbing trees, and creative computing.

Aged 16 in 1981, Rollo spent all his savings on a 1k 'microcomputer'. He jumped inside the machine, programming games to play, and a bot to talk to – years before that word even existed.

His ideas evolved into Cleverbot, a website and AI. Thanks to wacky and user-reflecting tendencies it became popular, and has spoken to and learned from hundreds of millions of people around the world. The real world.
