"We should delicately and subtly undermine the idea that truth and facts are possible in the first place. Once people have become doubtful about the truth of anything, all kinds of things are open to us."
I am so impressed with how Pullman has, with the 20 year gap since the Golden Compass / , seamlessly updated the themes of his work to deal with today's pressing issues in The Secret Commonwealth.

DID YOU KNOW:

US publisher Random House is named after its secret headquarters building, an interdimensional portal currently decorated in Young Adult Brutalist style, and which can only be entered by those who already know of its existence, or by prospective Editors. The House generates rooms - and best-selling novels - procedurally on demand, following an arcane algorithm first coded by Benjamin Franklin. You could become the next Editor - if you pick up the Editor's Typewriter and survive.

"(...) algorithms do not see the world with mathematical detachment but instead tend to replicate or even amplify historical cultural biases. (...) Experiments by WIRED using the official photos of 10 men and 10 women from the California State Senate suggest the study’s findings still hold. (...) Google’s top suggested labels noted a smile for only one of the men, but for seven of the women. The company’s AI vision service labeled all 10 of the men as “businessperson,” often also with “official” or “white collar worker.” Only five of the women senators received one or more of those terms. Women also received appearance-related tags, such as “skin,” “hairstyle,” and “neck,” that were not applied to men."

Can we get some "Obama/Biden buddy adventure" genre fanfic but instead it's these two spreading communism across the globe?

Reviews like this make the blood, sweat and tears working on this adventure game while being an underpaid social worker in the US ghetto worth it. And yeah, let's make cyberpunk PUNK again!
