Miles Jensen has a confession to make. To the “true believers”, he is the faithful guardian of a website devoted to the late Pete Novotnik, founder of a future-obsessed internet cult. But Miles is not a true believer – he only got involved out of a desire to rekindle an affair with Pete’s wife, Kay. Hoping to shock the true believers into a crisis of faith, he decides to reveal his true colours and his dubious role in Pete’s death. But when a journalist starts to investigate, he is forced to confront the truth about his motives for wanting to undermine the cult and his feelings for Kay.
A thought-provoking novel with flashes of dry humour, “In the future…” is about jealousy, belief and the utopian dreams we project onto technology.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Thinking about 2 things: first, the impact of technology and where it might lead us and second, our tendency to believe what we want to believe, rather than look at what's in front of us – I wanted to show how that can apply to relationships as much as anything else.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Some of the characters were inspired by reading about "doomsday" cults such as Aum Shinrikyo in Japan. Others – particularly the narrator – are drawn from my own experience.
