Synopses & Reviews
An operator at AidSat, a subscriber service that monitors customers' vital signs and is ready to assist with a client's every need, Kent has been watching his neighbor, Sabrina, an AidSat client, unaware that a mysterious unknown someone is watching them both, keeping track of every aspect of their lives and waiting for The Unbinding, in an Orwellian tale of technology run amok. Original.
"Kirn's The Unbinding merits our close attention, not only for itself the man is a talented writer but for what might be portended for the art of fiction." The Boston Globe
"[A]s enjoyable as it is unique....Call it Phillip K. Dick with less paranoia and more humor....The prose retains the immediacy of its real-time authorship. The web links are available for clicking and surfing on the novel's website. It's proof that online or off, a good story is still a good story." Snowden Wright, Esquire (read the entire Esquire review)
Before AidSat I had no self, no soul. I was a billing address. A credit score. I had a TV, a computer, a phone, a car, an apartment, some furniture, and a health-club locker. Then AidSat hired me and gave me a life. And not just one life. Hundreds of them, thousands.
