In Beta - Prescott Harvey7.34

Stranger Things by way of William Gibson, In Beta is an irreverent sci-fi thriller that will remind you how much you miss the 90s.

It’s the summer of 1993. The radio is a strange mix of Duran Duran, Nirvana, and House of Pain. An organization called the World Wide Web has just been set up to manage something called the Internet. And the most popular computer game in the world is SimCity 2000.

For Cascadia High’s Class of 1993, the future isn’t bright, and Jay Banksman’s outlook is no exception. Cascadia is a one high-school, one-factory town in which nothing ever changes ― until now. After another student goes missing ― as if erased from the town ― the mysterious girl Jay dreams about each night appears in Cascadia. The situation grow stranger still, when Jay discovers a strange disk: it contains everything about Cascadia, and changes to its code seem to change Cascadia.
