Is dying the worst thing that can happen to you? Hector West thinks so, especially after the death of his father in Iraq. So, Hector escapes into the online world of Omega Wars where he knows the worst that can happen to his ‘character’ is an inconvenient respawn. After all, real is real and virtual isn’t. Yet Hector’s real and virtual worlds are heading for a deadly collision as the war that took his father crashes headlong into his quiet suburban life. And getting killed, Hector is about to find out, isn’t the worst thing that can happen to you. It isn’t even close.

The seed for Multiplayer sprouted in author John C. Brewer's head from encountering gamers from around the world while Brewer and his three sons played HALO on XBox-Live. As a physicist and rocket scientist, he was also aware of the technical difficulties government authorities would have monitoring for voice evidence of criminal activity in a mixed data stream, and the idea for the book was suddenly obvious. The military family setting, and the trials that it brings, was a natural backdrop for him, having grown up in a family with a long military history. While Multiplayer's joys, tragedies and real life challenges appeal to a wide range of readers, Brewer hopes the novel's context will also draw in those game-playing teens who have given up on books as a source of entertainment.
