Fair Trade

By Philip Hemplow

Sci-Fi | eBook


Lionel Schultz is just an ordinary guy, living the quiet life in Pittsburgh. He has two children, an ex-wife, a regular seat at his favourite bar—all he needs, in fact, to keep him happy. Fang Jie is a migrant worker in a Chinese factory, making plug-in chargers for the latest generation of augmented-reality eyewear. His life is an unbroken routine of fourteen hour shifts and disappointment. In the ordinary course of things, each should be oblivious to the other’s existence—but one day their dreams collide. The factory becomes Lionel’s recurring nightmare, while his life becomes Fang Jie’s American dream. Seven thousand miles apart and aware of the other’s every thought and movement, the two men are drawn into one another’s world. Can they co-exist there or must one dream prevail? How far will Lionel go to protect those he loves? How much will Fang Jie risk to fulfill his heart's desire?
