Blue Pills by Armand Vespertine
Surreality is the most popular Massively Multiplayer Online Simulated Reality on Earth. With full sensory immersion indistinguishable from the real world, millions of people log on to experience its vast and fantastical dreamscape.
Some never log off.
Maverick is one such ‘Blue Pill’, but for him the Everdream is no decadent fantasy. He sustains himself by gold farming, mining imaginary gold to exchange for Reality’s equally imaginary money.
It’s a dreary, grinding existence which thankfully comes to an end when he comes across an Adventurer named Vega. She enlists him for his mining skills in acquiring some of the most valuable treasure in Surreality. To his amazement they succeed, and soon set off on an even greater quest.
Unbeknownst to either of them, their success has humiliated and angered one of the most powerful players in the game. Desperate to avenge his humiliation and reclaim his lost prestige, he dreams up a plot that will not only put an end to their adventuring but change the very nature of Surreality forever.

Five Star Review on Amazon By brujaja
I think this is a great story, written with originality, humor, and affection. Further adventures of these or other characters in this world would be most welcome.
About the Author
I’ve always been a day dreamer, and I write to give those fantasies an existence external to myself. I publish them because what’s the point of writing if no one ever reads it?
I have eight books so far, and intend to keeping publishing for the foreseeable future. If you like my books and would like to help ensure that I am able to keep writing, then please rate and review them. Shout outs on social media would also be appreciated.
May the World inside my head soon be in yours.
