It all started, as so many good stories do, on eBay.
However, when Phil Grundy snatches a pristine Sinclair ZX81 from under the nose of a fellow collector, he has no idea he has entered into more than just a bidding war.
Phil soon discovers that shady forces have been uplifting home computers since the 1980s, and the same shady forces have an unusual interest in his latest purchase.
Armed only with a ZX81 and a retired Commer ambulance, Phil and his friends must travel across worlds real, imaginary and otherwise in their quest to stop the mysterious Assembly of Newly Uplifted Systems.
