GameStop, Inc.

thousand year beach

“The Thousand Year Beach presents an idyllic virtual world, still running long after having been abandoned by humans, that suddenly finds itself invaded by an impossible force. Renowned among SF fans and critics, we invite readers to discover TOBI Hirotaka’s first full-length novel this summer.”

Nick Mamatas, Editor

Created to mimic a southern European harbor town, the Realm of Summer is just one of the zones within the virtual resort known as the Costa del Número. It has been more than a thousand years since humans stopped coming to the Realm, leaving the AIs alone in their endless summer. All that has come to a sudden end, as an army of mysterious Spiders begins to reduce the town to nothing. As night falls, the few remaining AIs prepare for their final, hopeless battle. The war between the virtual and the real begins in book one of the Angel of the Ruins series.

Author TOBI Hirotaka was born in 1960 and won the Sanseido SF Story Contest while still a student at Shimane University. From 1983 to 1992 he actively contributed short stories to Japan’s SF Magazine. After a hiatus of ten years, he returned in 2002 with his first full-length novel, The Thousand Year Beach, which took Second Prize in SF Magazine‘s Best SF of 2002.

The Thousand Year Beach will release June 19th with an MSRP of $16.99. An eBook edition will also be available for the Amazon Kindle, and in Apple’s iBooks Store, Barnes & Noble’s Nook Book Store, the Kobo eBooks Store, and the Google Play Store.
