Gamers, take note… the ultimate contest for a game programmer’s fortune begins here…

Ernest Cline brings his love of 80s pop culture and gaming (evident in his screenplay for the 2008 comedy Fanboys) to this original debut novel chronicling Wade Watts’ part in the global contest to win the fortune of reclusive game designer genius James Halliday, creator of the online gaming worlds of OASIS. Years after Halliday’s death Wade stumbles upon a clue and wins the first of three keys and the focus of the world… whether he wants it or not. Wade, who has always used OASIS as an escape from his real-world lot, may have to combine his two worlds to survive the contest. Fans of Cory Doctorow, Charles Stross and Hannu Rajaniemi take note.
