Miles Jensen has a confession to make. To the “true believers”, he is the faithful guardian of a website devoted to the late Pete Novotnik, founder of a future-obsessed internet cult. But Miles is not a true believer – he only got involved out of a desire to rekindle an affair with Pete’s wife, Kay. Hoping to shock the true believers into a crisis of faith, he decides to reveal his true colours and his dubious role in Pete’s death. But when a journalist starts to investigate, he is forced to confront the truth about his motives for wanting to undermine the cult and his feelings for Kay.
A thought-provoking novel with flashes of dry humour, “In the future…” is about jealousy, belief and the utopian dreams we project onto technology.
