cclaimed by science fiction writers like Bruce Sterling and Rudy Rucker, and by eminent futurists and digital visionaries like Howard Rheingold, Mitch Kapor, and Jeff Bezos, Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom is a wonderful tour de force, the alternately edgy and charming tale of youngJules's coming of age in a world that has conquered scarcity and death. The 'Magic Kingdom' of the title is the same one you're thinking of.For in this future, the great theme parks of the 20th Century are maintained by ardent artistic preservationists, who fight bitter battles over the most appropriate way to keep them going. Now a new group has taken over the Hall of the Presidents-and they've had Jules killed. This upsets him. (It's only his fourth death and revival, after all.) Now it's war-a war of shifting reputations and technical wizardry for the soul of the Magic Kingdom itself.
