Robin wakes up in a clinic with most of his memories missing, it doesn't take him long to discover that someone's trying to kill him.
It's the twenty-seventh century, when interstellar travel is by teleport
gate and conflicts are fought by network worms that censor refugees'
personalities-including Robin's earlier self.  On the run from
unknown enemies, he volunteers to participate in a unique experimental
polity, the Glasshouse, constructed to simulate a preaccelerated
culture. Participants are assigned anonymized identities: it looks like
the ideal hiding place for a posthuman on the run. But in this
escape-proof environment, Robin will undergo an even more radical
change, placing him at the mercy of the experimenters-and at the mercy
of his own unbalanced psyche.
