內容簡介

入圍美國軌跡獎最佳出道作決選名單
入選柯克斯評論二零一六年最佳好書之一
入選華盛頓郵報二零一六年最佳科幻、奇幻小說之一


故事發生在虛擬的二十一世紀後半,這時候國家的邊界已有新的規定。Information是一個壟斷市場的強大搜尋引擎,它將飽受戰爭摧殘的國家,轉換成微民主時代後已過了二十年。

這二十年間經歷了兩次的選舉周期,名為Heritage的黨派在兩次選舉都獲勝,下一次的選舉即將到來,在野黨Supermajority這次來勢洶洶,準備要盡全力奪下執政寶座。

每個人對政治的定義、看法不同,對於某大黨的執政官Ken來說,獲選代表一個可以持續很久的穩定工作,對Information的代理人Domaine來說,這場選舉是她的一個轉機,對Information的執事Mishima來說,這一切就像是個謎,因為他始終不懂,當許多人都想著要爭奪權力時,要如何讓這場政治實驗不停的運作下去?

本書是作者的出道作,是三部曲中的第一部,因書中主題、寫法特殊,一出版就受到各界好評。

Read Infomocracy, the first book in Campbell Award finalist Malka Older's groundbreaking cyberpunk political thriller series The Centenal Cycle and the novel NPR called "Kinetic and gripping."

• A Locus Award Finalist for Best First Novel
• The book The Huffington Post called "one of the greatest literary debuts in recent history"
• One of Kirkus' "Best Fiction of 2016"
• One of The Washington Post's "Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of 2016"
• One of Book Riot's "Best Books of 2016 So Far"


It's been twenty years and two election cycles since Information, a powerful search engine monopoly, pioneered the switch from warring nation-states to global micro-democracy. The corporate coalition party Heritage has won the last two elections. With another election on the horizon, the Supermajority is in tight contention, and everything's on the line.

With power comes corruption. For Ken, this is his chance to do right by the idealistic Policy1st party and get a steady job in the big leagues. For Domaine, the election represents another staging ground in his ongoing struggle against the pax democratica. For Mishima, a dangerous Information operative, the whole situation is a puzzle: how do you keep the wheels running on the biggest political experiment of all time, when so many have so much to gain?

Infomocracy is Malka Older's debut novel.

PRAISE FOR INFOMOCRACY

“A fast-paced, post-cyberpunk political thriller... If you always wanted to put The West Wing in a particle accelerator with Snow Crash to see what would happen, read this book.” ―Max Gladstone, author of Last First Snow

"Smart, ambitious, bursting with provocative extrapolations, Infomocracy is the big-data-big-ideas-techno-analytical-microdemoglobal-post-everything political thriller we've been waiting for." ―Ken Liu, author of The Grace of Kings

"In the mid-21st century, your biggest threat isn’t Artificial Intelligence―it’s other people. Yet the passionate, partisan, political and ultimately fallible men and women fighting for their beliefs are also Infomocracy’s greatest hope. An inspiring book about what we frail humans could still achieve, if we learn to work together." ―Karl Schroeder, author of Lockstep and the Virga saga
