In 2039, tsunamis have devastated the world and left the seas rising faster than predicted. To forget the uncertain future, the citizens of the Japanese coastal city of Shibido immerse themselves in the Maya Lenz—a smart contact lens that filters out what they don’t want to see. Even when the rising seas force an islander tribe to take up residence by Shibido’s sea wall, it’s months before the refugees are noticed.
Struggling actor Yoshi can’t afford a Lenz, and he fears becoming just as invisible as the ignored tribe. So, when Maya offer him a Lenz and a role in their next mixed-reality project, he’s all in. But with the flaws of his goals exposed by a magnetic stranger named Kai, his career threatened by doppelgänger androids, and his vision haunted by a homeless boy who may or may not be real, Yoshi fears he’s losing his grip on reality. But something even more magical than the Lenz, and more profound than love, is demanding he rise to his most challenging role—to be someone real in a world of uncertainty.
Blending the technological, spiritual and supernatural, this tale of regained hope in a fantastically imagined augmented future will touch you deeply. Immerse yourself in the mind-bending mixed reality of The Lenz, and order a copy today.
