Ellipsis is a player in the Lovesport at MoreCorp, the world's friendliest corporation, headquartered in Silicon. On a team of secret readers in a race to reduce the world's writing, she is pitted against algorithms, not-bosses, and teammates, including her true love, in a farcical fight for a rare spot on the company scrapheap. She wishes for a less lizard-brained life. Will winning help her relax into greatness? Or is the game more dangerous than MoreCorp lets on? El can't tell. Because when the text is taken out of context, what's left is a con.
