365 Years of Solitude, Sufferings and the Rise of the Creators: 2020-2384: Benjamin Katz
A sharp new comedy about female friendship from the creator of Princess Jellyfish! ´´I spent all my time wondering ´What if?´ Then one day I woke up and I was 33.´´ Rinko has hustled her whole life, but one day she wakes up and finds herself a writer of a cheap online soap opera with only two friends (with whom she goes drinking most nights). In a booze-fueled delusion, she swears to get married by the time the Tokyo Olympics roll around in 2020, but it´s not going to be a straight line... and there won´t be any fairy tale endings!
It was Cobb Anderson who built the ´´boppers´´ - the first robots with real brains. Now, in 2020, Cobb is just another aged ´´pheezer´´ with a bad heart, drinking and grooving on the old tunes in Florida retirement hell. His ´´bops´´ have come a long way, though, rebelling against their subjugation to set up their own society on the moon. And now they´re offering creator Cobb immortality but at a stiff price: his body his soul... and his world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Sorensen.

It´s February 29, 2020, and Nova Negrahnu cannot wait to start playing Solarversia, a year-long game based in a virtual world that´s modeled on the real-world solar system. Given three lives, three vehicles, and told to master the Science of Solarversia to stand a chance of winning, players compete against 100 million people for the £10m grand prize and a place in the history books. Solarversia starts three months before Nova´s A-levels, the life-changing exams that could see her win a place at Nottingham, the university that Charlie attends, the second-year student she falls for on an open-day visit. As she strains to balance her addiction to the game with her mounting schoolwork, Nova´s world is unexpectedly turned upside down when the Holy Order, a mysterious cult-like organization sets its sights on the game and Spiralwerks, its creator. 1.
