The Machine Stops

Paperback (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform Oct. 30, 2017)
The Machine Stops escribes a world in which most of the human population has lost the ability to live on the surface of the Earth. Each individual now lives in isolation below ground in a standard room, with all bodily and spiritual needs met by the omnipotent, global Machine. Travel is permitted, but is unpopular and rarely necessary. Communication is made via a kind of instant messaging/video conferencing machine with which people conduct their only activity: the sharing of ideas and what passes for knowledge. By E.M. Forster of Howard's End and A Room With a View fame.
