Near the end of the 21st century, the cyber-entity known as the Collective controls what is left of the world after a long devastating war, using reality-altering drugs to bend countless minds to its singular will.
Your compliance will earn you reward. But if you resist, you will become an outcast condemned to social quarantine, or worse -- deletion by the barrel of a bounty hunter's gun.
Nineteen-year-old Max Zander lives in the old boroughs of New York City, surviving on his wits and the willingness to do whatever it takes to survive. As a hunter, Max thinks he has everything figured out, that is until he encounters Zoe Chacon, an aging terrorist with ties to the parents he never knew. Their unlikely friendship will finally open Max’s eyes to the truth, causing the Collective to order his deletion. With his life on the line, he must choose between saving himself or protecting Zoe at all costs.
Inspired by the works of Philip K. Dick, The Low End Kid is a high-stakes acid trip through a strange future landscape, where bad men and dangerous women reign supreme, and reality is just a matter of perspective.
