About the Book
Maggie works for Onyx, an underground consultancy that uses subversion to change global policies, and she’s calling them for tactical support. Onyx has access to lots of cash and is made up of do gooders who use guerrilla techniques to shift the social and technical landscape towards a more equitable society. On a business trip, Maggie develops an abscess, which leads to an incredible adventure. After an unfortunate hospital incident, Maggie is asking Onyx to help her skirt the government and figure out what exactly their corporate rivals are up to. Inspired by all the things we don't talk about in polite society, Maybe Zombies explores technology and the human body with an honest, slightly sickening gusto. Come follow Maggie and her drunk, good-hearted tech bro around the world.
