Overview

"An absolute joy to read. As clever as it is hilarious, as profound as it is captivating." –James Dashner, Author of The Maze Runner

"A stinging science fiction satire that takes the downsides of modern living to their hilarious and horrifying conclusion." – Foreword Reviews

"A cultured, witty, and very British attack on vapid reality TV values, set in an empty-souled tomorrow." –Kirkus Reviews


ABOUT ALWAYS GREENER:

Life's biggest victim, please step up and claim your prize!

A smash-hit reality show is offering a lifetime of luxury to the one person living the world's worst life, and now everyone is out to prove just how bad they've got it.

Want in? All you've got to do is accept ocular implants that let the whole world see life through your eyes, twenty-four hour a day, seven days a week.

Fortunately, there's still one person who hasn't lost faith in all humanity. The show's ever-smiling host is determined to wring some tiny bit of meaning out of this twisted competition and your unhappy existence.

There has to be a purpose behind all this misery.

...doesn't there?

Launching in February 2020, ALWAYS GREENER mixes the whimsical wordplay of Douglas Adams with the ominous relevance of the TV show "Black Mirror." Set in a near-future corporate dystopia, this satirical sci-fi novel explores how individuals willingly sacrifice privacy and control of their own lives in exchange for new technologies and a few minutes of fame.

About the Author

Born in Newfoundland, Canada, raised in France, and come into his own as an author while living near an 12th century abbey in rural England, J.R.H. Lawless is an attorney by day and a speculative fiction author by night, penning novels and short stories, mostly in adult Science Fiction which has been a lifelong passion for him.

He draws on his education and professional experience, including at Sciences Po Paris and the French National Assembly, to craft worlds that look ahead to the political, social, and economic challenges that face us all, both in the near and the more distant future, as humanity moves out into the Solar System and beyond. He also draws on his deep-grained love of Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams to make sure his worlds are always full of tongue-in-cheek humour, and never take themselves quite too seriously, even when the subject matter itself could not be more serious.

Now living and writing in Atlantic Canada with his beautiful family, Lawless looks forward to sharing his worlds with as many people as possible.
