Great elevated sci-fi concept! Can't wait to read this one.

1,000 Faces does exactly what all good science fiction should do: explore and aspects of society in a new and thought-provoking light. What happens when the internet is no longer anonymous, but the real world is? I can't wait to find out.

If this were a movie, I imagine it stylistically looking like V for Vendetta. You can feel the character's emotional conflict in the second excerpt. While the first excerpt gives a great look into the societal concept. I'm really excited for this one.

In 1000 Faces, J. Graham-Jones has captured one of the most insidious fears that waits below the surface of almost every modern interaction- privacy. Kara, the protagonist, is a woman who seems to wear a mask to keep out those around her as well as all those who read her story. Jones' voice is crisp and mysterious, masterfully easing us into this very possible future through the eyes of a woman we can't wait to see come into her own.In 1000 Faces, J.

I loved this excerpt. For me, it brought the abstract concept of people wearing digital masks to life in a claustrophobic and sad way. The best science fiction does not just grapple with high concepts and world views but is about the people who have to live with them, and the piece suddenly made me feel connected to the protagonist, Kara. In a short piece which gives me very little information about her, I was left feeling moved by her as a human being and sympathetic to her plight.  What also resonated with me is that whilst I understand the reason in the novel that people have taken to wearing the masks, as described in the outline, I feel like Kara's life is already happening in every board room throughout the world, where people scrabble to make a living and have to hide their own souls behind neutral expressions the company would approve of. I was inspired by the skilful writing, the deft rhythm and language of the piece, and if it was the intention to make me want to read more, mission accomplished. Genuine talent is evident here, and having just finished reading Ray Bradbury's Illustrated Man for the first time I would be very happy to move straight on to J. Graham-Jones.

Wow. I don't usually go in for science fiction, but this reads true and captures something entirely too human. I feel compelled to give this a mighty gold star.
