Food for Thought

Intravenous
Free sample

If you can't afford food, do you give up and starve, or do you steal just to feed yourself? Or do you sign up for Agritecture's "Food for Thought" initiative, a program resulting from the government's allowance of privatized food stamp issuance? Do you allow a corporation to install nanomachines in your blood and your brain to harness your brain's electrical energy for their own gain, just to feed yourself when you have few other options?

And what becomes of those people who refuse to succumb to starvation, but also refuse to take part in a Machiavellian corporation's desire to reign supreme over the sources of human nourishment?

In Food for Thought, a collective of hackers and ecoterrorists find an exploit in Agritecture's plan, though in doing so manage to cause potentially irrevocable harm to themselves in the process, resulting in a climactic battle of the individuals' souls versus the oppression of the conglomerate.

About the author

Jim Johanson began writing by the age of eight as he fostered an early affection for Stephen King novels, the stories of Redwall by Brian Jacques, and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. In Jim's third grade class, students were encouraged to write stories and read them in front of their classmates in a reading circle. Jim was banned from the circle after his teacher determined that his stories were too violent and adult-oriented for the other children.

Reaching for an escape from the monotony of her world, Kara stumbles backward into her mind to find that the window to another existence has been opened. Fear abounds when Kara passes through and learns that it may be more difficult to find a pathway back.


Reaching for an escape from the monotony of her world, Kara stumbles backward into her mind to find that the window to another existence is open. Fear abounds when Kara climbs through and learns that it may be more difficult to find a pathway back home.


EXCERPT: 
Kara's eyes closed lightly. Her eyelids felt like feathers resting on her face. As her eyes inevitably closed fully, she felt a sensation to which she was unaccustomed. The typical, lonely feeling of closed eyes that she dreaded every night when she forced herself to attempt sleep, was not to be found. 


There was only a calming feeling of solace in the warmth that washed over her face. The serenity of warmth incarnate permeated even the light between her eyes and her shuttered eyelids. The feeling was welcoming and fully encompassing, and soon she was overtaken and enraptured in the experience, a willing participant in something greater than herself. 
The muscles of her hands, usually compulsively tight and wrought with anxiety, began to relax. Kara allowed the head of her wine glass to rest between her breasts. A tiny bit of red wine overflowed onto her chest and dipped slowly downward to her navel where it pooled, appearing like blood seeping from a cesarean section.
