Synopsis

Got something strange for you. Something very strange. Something like a...Silicon Embrace

Could it be true? That humanity has a secret history and that secret history is coming to fruitation? That the vast social crises engulfing Quinn Heldenand Black Bettyand Jack Sullivan, in Silicon Embrace -- crises like the Second American Civil War, the ecologicl breakdown that led to the American Famine, the balkanization of the country -- are all part of a startling convergence, a powerful current of Secret Becoming...which will transform humanity, or destroy it...

Is that it? Could it be the time of Miracles is upon us -- that Miracles are coming out of the realm of myth and hearsay and into dazzling confrontational reality?

Could it be that the flying saucer hysteria in the media, along with decades of extraterrestrial imagery in television and movies, has another meaning -- that it is, in effect, a transmission itself...from somewhere else?

Could it be that there is more than one alien force working amongst us?

And what's really going on at Area 51?

Quinn Helden, alternative media reporter and Generation Z visionary, is beginning to discover the answers to these seemingly unanswerable questions.

He's a conduit for the hidden truths, the living energies behind the civil war-torn landscape of the early 21st century...while at the same time discovering his own hidden secrets, his gift for the eerie cybernetic shamanism that he brings to this tormentedd and weirdly ecstatic future.

A future where cyberpunk technology and ancient spiritual secrets merge into one Silicon Embrace
