Backcover: Reality is only skin deep

Second Skin takes an intimate, fascinating look at computer gamers whose lives have been transformed by the emerging, hugely popular genre of computer games like World of Warcraft, Second Life, and everquest, which allow millions of users from around the world to simultaneaously interact in virtual spaces. We meet couples who have fallen in love without meeting, disabled players whose lives have been given new purpose, those struggling with addiction, Chinese gold-farming sweatshop workers, wealthy online entrepeneurs and legendary guild leaders- all living in a world that doesn't quite exist.


Refreshments will be provided.
