In the future some of you will become great
writers, renowned artists & visionary filmmakers.
Most of you though will just have more sex.
Go forward a few more generations and none of you

Your culture is shaped by machines.
Android Writer PD121928 is part of the Android Publishing Program. To replicate a writer's life, his wife has been forcibly removed and he lives in solitude with an allowance for drugs and state prostitutes. Having just had his novel The Eating of Citizen Kane rejected, he now has 14 more attempts to get a story accepted for the program or he will be deactivated.
Can one of his characters and their story save him?
Featuring Absolute Zero (the coolest spaceship ever built - literally), Panthalassa: the all Earth sea, The Amazing Arctic Sinking Man, The Detective, the Button Man and the first men on Mars, An Android Awakes hurtles towards a shocking conclusion.
