Bioshock: Rapture

If you're of a literary mind, you may want to put down that Faulkner and pick up John Shirley's Bioshock: Rapture. The novel based on the video game series comes out on July 19, but today, an excerpt has been posted online. Think of it as a demo version of the full book.

The story is set before the events of the first game, and the main character, Bill McDonagh, is a small-scale plumbing contractor sent to fix a toilet. A toilet of fate, as it turns out, for the crapper in question belongs to Andrew Ryan, the architect of undersea "Paradise" Rapture. Ryan just happens to need a head of maintenance for his city, and Bill McDonagh does a very good job fixing the loo. 

Check out this opening line:

"Bill McDonagh was riding an elevator up to the top of the Andrew Ryan Arms—but he felt like he was sinking under the sea"

Foreshadow much?? Read the Bioshock: Rapture excerpt yourself and get psyched for the book when it comes out this summer.
