Reality: the state of things as they actually exist.
Reality is an illusion, albeit a persistent one. – Albert Einstein.
The belief that one’s own view of reality is the only reality is the most dangerous of all delusions. – Paul Watzlawick.
Not creating delusions is enlightenment. – Bodhidharma.
Which delusion do I pick? – Nisa Harper, aspiring Reality Hacker.
If you discovered that magic was real, what would you do with it? Reveal it to the world, or keep it secret? Nisa Harper has just learned to make the impossible happen and is really beginning to wish she had kept it a little more secret than she did. Only a few days after discovering that magic is not only real, but that she can do it she is being pressganged into a secret branch of the police set up to deal with the supernatural. But that’s only the start…
If you discovered that the world was not real, that everything you knew, everything you can see when you look out through a window, is little more than an illusion, how would you react? If your reality is not real, then what is reality? If you could see beyond reality to the place outside it, how would you know that was real and not another delusion? Where does the unreality stop?
For Nisa Harper, rookie supernatural detective and reality hacker, picking which delusion is the right one has just become a matter of life or death.
