In the near future… …science is able to distill human personalities into a drug-form. Called utopiates –a merging of the words utopia and opiate– these drugs allow users to swap personalities with the “mental imprints” of other people. Every user has their own reasons for seeking chemical escape, but all soon learn the cost of soul swapping is extremely high.
Follow the interconnected lives of four individuals addicted to injecting “souls” in the sci-fi series, UTOPIATES Vol.1, now available from 01 Publishing. At its core, this book is an unflinching portrayal of human behavior at its most extreme.
