Eric Sommerson works at the Endless Crusts Pizza Crust Factory in a job that makes him question every day what he is doing with his life. Coming from a well-regarded family, a lot is expected of him but under all this pressure he prefers to seek solace in the virtual world of video games, where he at least feels like he has some power over the world around him. When his parents get him the VirtuaHelmTM, Eric finds a virtual reality world where he can live out his fantasies more realistically and more convincingly than he has ever done before, as well as meet people from across the world, all in one online space, the city of Prium. This opportunity comes with many challenges that Eric and his group of friends must face, that provide them all with the sense of purpose they had all been missing in their ‘real' lives.

Christopher's appetite for science fiction is rooted in the wild and the zany. His drive for writing is anchored in his fascination with other peoples' lives, as well as his own. Tapping into societal issues while leaving room to veer off into nourishing bursts of escapism, Christopher seeks to thrill us, delight us, and dare us to question our own inner voices. He enjoys writing poetry, playing video games, daydreaming, gardening, foreign languages and cultures, and emerging technologies.
