Ever since the tragic deaths of his wife and child, Tyler Erickson spends his days getting intoxicated and playing advanced VR simulation games. Sticking to his strict routine of escaping reality is the only way he knows how to cope with his pain and sense of purposelessness. His palliative escapism successfully kept him numb to the world, until he became the unwitting participant in a conspiracy surrounding a scientific breakthrough called Simulated Reality Technology. Upon entering an S.R.T program, Tyler discovers that he is stuck in a simulation of the ancient Roman world, from which there is no escape—not even death. The Capuan is a multi-genre exploration of history, humanity, virtue and vice. The science fiction elements of the story have significant implications for what it means to be human in an advanced technological age, while the historical fiction and alt-history aspects allow readers to appreciate the consequences of introducing ancient civilizations to revolutionary new ideas, knowledge and technologies.
