The fate of the world is at stake. A journey in search of the ultimate prize. Are you all set? The year is 2044, and the real world is a depressing place. Wade Watts, like most of humanity, spends his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia that allows you to be anyo... ne you want, a place where you can live, play, and fall in love on any of ten thousand planets. Wade, like the rest of humanity, fantasizes about finding the ultimate lottery ticket hidden somewhere in this virtual world. OASIS creator James Halliday has hidden a series of fiendish puzzles somewhere inside this massive networked playground, and whoever can solve them will be rewarded with massive fortune—and incredible power. For years, millions have tried in vain to win this prize, knowing only that Halliday's riddles are based on the late-twentieth-century pop culture he adored. For years, millions of people have found another way to escape in this quest, retreating into happy, obsessive study of Halliday's icons. Wade, like many of his peers, is equally at ease debating the merits of John Hughes' work, playing Pac-Man, or reciting Devo lyrics as he is scrounging power to power his OASIS rig. Then Wade comes across the first puzzle. Thousands of competitors join the hunt, including some powerful players who are willing to commit very real murder to beat Wade to this prize. Wade's only chance of surviving and preserving everything he knows now is to win. But, in order to do so, he may have to leave his oh-so-perfect virtual existence behind and face life—and love—in the real world he's always wished to escape.

Quotes from Ready Player One

Screw you, Aech! And your dead grandma!

The Firefly universe was anchored in a sector adjacent to the Star Wars galaxy, with a detailed re-creation of the Star Trek universe in the sector adjacent to that.

There, inside the game’s two-dimensional universe, life was simple: It’s just you against the machine. Move with your left hand, shoot with your right, and try to stay alive as long as possible.
