A book on space: the new urban space. The one of industrial parks and big shopping plazas where you lose yourself looking for an oil station and end up buying a new sofa in Ikea.

"In his galactic expansion towards city outskirts, the man in tracksuit stepped on those arid lands and converted them in parkings, leisure parks and commercial plazas. Extra-planetary bases for the conquest of a comfortable life. He created a new habitat, and painted on a wall what he could not find there, more real than reality itself. A new world is coming, and nothing will stop it."

This book has been published as the 41th issue of "Kursala's Notebooks"
