For me there is only the traveling on paths that have heart. There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length. There I travel, looking, looking breathlessly.
— Carlos Castenada

Quest of Human 1

With make-believe everywhere, it doesn't matter who you really are.

An insecure, reclusive Earth scientist is almost killed by a Martian assassin with a focal razor. For his survival, and to uncover the problem with the "deviant diggers" on Mars, he must become a brash and promiscuous Martian mining tycoon.

At the beginning of the 22nd century, in a world of chatty machines, pervasive surveillance, immersive Virtual/Augmented Reality, and standardized brain conditioning, many things are not as they appear.
