What’s going on?!
Where the bloody hell is Wigthorn?!
What happened to Worthing?!
Don’t worry, you haven’t been transported into an alternate reality, you’re still in Worthing. But if you want to be transported into an alternate reality where Worthing is Wigthorn, the old pier is underwater, you have no privacy, satellites watch your every move and people disguise themselves as sheep or hyenas or a cactus, then read the debut novel by Worthingite (or Wigthornian), Ben Ellis – ‘In A Right State’.

Your information is being sold. And guess who’s paying for it?
It’s 2066, and living in a country where big corporations are constantly undressing you with their spies isn’t much fun for Duncan. He remembers the days when information was protected, not sold to the highest bidder. When his illegal organic vegetable trade is discovered at the bottom of his garden in the town of Wigthorn, the tomatoes really hit the fan.
Amy works for Pharmara, the biggest pharmaceutical company in the UK, analysing user data. Yes, it’s as boring as it sounds but she believes a little corporate access to personal information is a small price to pay to live in a post-tax, post-carbon, post-poverty world.
After all, if you’ve got nothing to hide, you’ve got nothing to fear … right?
Poppy lives in Shaded Vale, a town rich enough to stay off the radar. Her father has some big plans to shake up the industrial power balance.
Thrown together by circumstance, Duncan, Amy and Poppy become tangled in a dangerous quest for truth with Pharmara Security hot on their heels. But if knowledge is power, how is it that those in power are such idiots?
