Your world is manipulated by computer coding, search engines and social networks. It’s just a matter of time before everything you watch, read and listen to will be created by autonomous 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.

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.
