Rohan Quine, “The Host in the Attic” – chapter I “Imminent completion of masterpiece” – second sample – video
Rik is starting to drift into a doze, when he jumps awake at the hologram’s sudden pronouncement, “Test-rendering complete.” And right in front of him, there on the desk beside his keyboard, hovers the head of Jaymi Peek, in the form of a little hologram about the height of his laptop screen, staring expectantly up at him! It is only an initial rough test-render, of course: the real cladding for Rik’s Web-guide will come from a professional high-end film-shoot rather than a provisional video-grab such as he’s just effected from that awards footage.
But in any case, how fabulous!
How spooky, too.
