Versim. Kicking ass inside universes that are inside universes.

Hox conceives of a future where technology advances the imagination to host alternate universes that spawn constructed beings that -- for all intents and purposes -- don't know they aren't real. Even further, these alternate realities aren't just for kicks but making money, baby. It's the new age of television, where viewers can watch the universes of their choice -- horror, erotica, or just plain old life in the 21st century. And f

I'm generally leery of free kindle books, as they often lack quality. I keep downloading them, though, because, well, they're free. And every so often, I find a gem. This book is one of those. It did take me almost halfway through the book to really understand what was going on, but I liked that. Versim feels slightly similar to The Matrix (and characters do reference that film) like worlds within a world - it's all about virtual reality as a form of entertainment. But it's also more than that. ...more

I picked this up recently as a free ebook on Amazon. It was self-contained and I finished it quickly. The story takes place primarily 500 years in the future when we have developed immersive virtual reality and persistent virtual worlds.

The author does a good job of telling and showing various aspects of that reality. There were a few mysteries t ...more

I was recommended this book by another author. Downloaded a free sample. Liked what I read and bought a copy on Kindle.

I have read Gibson, Asimov, Clarke, Banks to be honest most major Science Fiction authors over the years.

I know what I like.
I like Versim.

Taking imagination to a new level. With a future with virtual worlds that can be created by the power of the mind.
You are immersed in the world with Harken Cole, on a ride that is sensational.

A great book. Can't wait for more from Curtis Hox.

I really liked this book. There were some parts I had trouble reading through, as details about the richly created world are revealed in some heavy scenes. The concepts within both the real and VR worlds that Curtis creates are unique, intriguing and fun. The mystery that weaves through the book keeps the story moving well and the characters are also enjoyable and well created.
