Infomocracy by Malka Older is a debut novel and futuristic political thriller examining the corruption of power in a global micro-democracy.
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?
How do you keep the wheels running on the biggest political experiment of all time when so many have so much to gain? Christine Marshall expertly narrates this tale of search engine monopoly and global micro-democracy, and we've got an exclusive audio excerpt of Chapter 2 of the Infomocracy audiobook here!
