418: I Am a Teapot is a near-future dystopian science fiction novel that explores a world where people by choice, birth, or punishment, relinquish the rights to their physical body. Their brains exist in a constantly-connected virtual interface where they enjoy a fantasy world of endless indulgences. However, while their minds have fun, their bodies are controlled by implants doing the filthiest and most dangerous jobs known to humanity.

Stripped of their identities, these dredges of society are simply called staff and they are disposable. But what happens when a staff becomes cognizant of its situation and tries to break free?

When staff number 418’s physical body is broken, he must come to terms with reality, and defend himself in a trial for his life. Will an unlikely friendship save him from permanent retirement?

 

Excerpt
Samuel reappeared out of his haze of black and blue dots, with the hardwire to my head. He was in three dimensions. I could actually reach out and touch him, and it would feel like I was. Just for fun, I walked up to Samuel and slapped his face. I don’t know why, I just felt like it. What was he going to do? It wasn’t like I was actually slapping a real person; everyone knew that concierges were just interfaces. It felt good to feel my hand slice through the air, my palm contacting his face, the weight of his jaw being thrown back and the sting that followed.

Samuel staggered a bit. He turned, adjusted himself and smiled. “Thank you,” he replied, “that was refreshing.”

“You are welcome,” I answered. “It was good for me.”
