Description
In 2008, strange fliers began to pepper the streets of San Francisco, boasting of bizarre scientific breakthroughs with a forwarding address for the insatiably curious; down the rabbit hole curious city-dwellers went, leading them directly to the doorstep of the Jejune Institute, where they uncovered an alternate-reality game tucked away in the heart of the city that would eventually expand beyond their wildest dreams. Spencer McCall drops you right into the eye of this new media hurricane, melding fact and fiction with the hypnotic allure that originally drew so many into the slightly trippy, often funny and wholly enthralling world of "The Institute."
