Gabby Syme is a VR agent for Savannah, the virtual reality network that covers the world. Taking advantage of a sudden opportunity, she is able to infiltrate the Supreme Council, the anonymous group of terrorists who wish to destroy the Savannah network. With each member named for a day of the week, the Council meets on a fantasy VR server, where Gabby goes undercover to take on the role of Thursday.
Despite discovering that no one is who they say they are and nothing is what it seems, Gabby is still able to close in on the leader of the group, the mysterious and terrifying Sunday.
But nothing can prepare her for what she finds.
Thursday is a reimagining of G.K. Chesterton’s astonishing thriller The Man Who Was Thursday, named one of the 100 best fantasies of all time in Michael Moorcock’s survey of the field. Jake Kerr has combined intrigue, virtual reality, and gaming culture in an apocalyptic setting that takes one of the best fantasies of all time and moves it into the realm of VR and cyberpunk.
