About this item

Anderson Lake is a company man, AgriGens Calorie Man in Thailand. Under cover as a factory manager, Anderson combs Bangkoks street markets in search of foodstuffs thought to be extinct, hoping to reap the bounty of historys lost calories. There, he encounters Emiko. Emiko is the Windup Girl, a strange and beautiful creature. One of the New People, Emiko is not human instead, she is an engineered being, creche-grown and programmed to satisfy the decadent whims of a Kyoto businessman, but now abandoned to the streets of Bangkok. Regarded as soulless beings by some, devils by others, New People are slaves, soldiers, and toys of the rich in a chilling near future in which calorie companies rule the world, the oil age has passed, and the side effects of bio-engineered plagues run rampant across the globe.
