Descrizione dell’editore

‘There are no jobs. Do you not pay any attention to the world around you? The human race has replaced itself with computers and automated systems. Even the job centre is automated. We’re a planet full of slackers, kept alive by universal credit...’

In a dystopian world of the near future, the human race has been made redundant by computerisation and automation. Brian, a man who has never done a day's work in his life, encounters Ada, a girl with a plan - and access to a time machine. Her intention is to assassinate Charles Babbage, inventor of the computer.

Brian and Ada journey back to the early nineteenth century, their mission to kill Babbage before he makes his breakthrough. But between them and success lies the length and breadth of Regency England, a wild, unruly period. Luddite rebels, the Royal Navy, Romantic poets, transportation, piracy, shipwreck, the horrors of Bedlam and polite society all lie between them and their goal.

But they know they must persevere. For the sake of humanity's future -

BABBAGE MUST DIE!
