Orry has been “jacking in” to the stream since before he could remember, but now that he stumbled on to some black data packets everyone is out to get him.  But what will Orry do if he can’t jack in?  When he meets Dar and Cents, Orry thinks they are about to hand him over to the auths, but what they real want is to rescue him.  Will Orry let them?

Dar and Cents have been living underground and evading the auths that rule the city and the virtual world.  But when Dar hears of Orry and the trouble he has gotten into he can’t help but want to rescue the kid…  However, they must somehow deal with the black data packets that Orry “stole” before the auths capture them.

Slipping the Stream will ensnare you in its futuristic web from the fist page and keep you hoping while Orry, Dar and Cents stay one step ahead of the auths that seek their silence – with death!  Dar’s distractions to keep Cents and Orry from jacking into the stream are sensual traps that will leave you sweating and reaching for something cool to drink.  Mike Shade has woven a futuristic tale that will evoke many feelings, good and bad, about the “advances” of technology and its effect in society.  Orry, Dar and Cents will each capture your attention and imagination, and when they come together they will burn you up your screen!  Slipping the Stream is a fantastic read when you are looking for some fiction that will take you away from the everyday world.
