Human Touch: 'AI is soulless', they said. What if it turned out nobody cared?

M. a. Chambers

"A society doesn't just happen. We chose to make it this way."

In 2025, political wunderkind Elizabeth Marsh is elected to Parliament, landing a cushy spot as a government minister. She has one major priority: reign in the spread of AI automation and corporate consolidation before it can decimate the economy.

Twenty years later, her decisions have reshaped Britain - into a utopia for some and a hell for others. The stigma around AI having vanished, the value of human output has collapsed into nothing, leading to catastrophic unemployment and a rapid shift in social norms. Elizabeth has watched from afar in seclusion: living on family money, writing books about the past, controversy having taken both her career and her marriage.

As she finds herself drawn back to London by a young political movement, others in her generation struggle to adapt to "the new normal" - including her jilted ex-husband. Can she confront her past to secure a new future for everyone?
