There were thirteen ways to die. Allowable methods of termination were being streamed to the massive screen up and behind them. They were appearing from left to right: the black, hand-held, over-and-under barrel Tazart, with electrocution by wire from its top barrel or lethal dart from the bottom- a three-strike Atemi- the curved, silver-handled DammerInge, presenting a short but scalpel-like blue luminous blade that pricks or cuts the skin sufficient to impart a lethal dose of the deadly Cyadoxitin- a sonic Cadamine Rod- the Triurite noose- and an emulated hand-to-hand competitor-Assassin combat animation.

These seven were followed by other methods used -just not by Assassins: an actual visual of the drifting, bluish Hydroline gas- implanting- Bantoxiphrine-R, a synthetic poison shown as a golden Skull & Crossbones vial- quarterings- wall and floor traps- and lastly, self-implanting at allowable on-site locations. Looking comfortable in the maroon sweater that almost matched his hair, Les waved towards the screen with a smile. Impressive, arent they! But of course, depending upon what weapon the Selection Computer randomly comes up with, a Termination Specialist is... He noted the well-muscled Specialists instant eye contact.

That is...rather an... Assassin...is allowed to kill a weaponless competitor from a near-distance and often enough one-on-one! He turned his head slightly more towards the camera to avoid his guests commanding green-eyed gaze before stating, And just how fair is that? And thats NOT taking into consideration the competitors chances of being eliminated on the chase by a floor or even a wall trap!

Harbinger leaned back into his chair a bit, looking confident and powerful in his Assassins uniform- a light-purple, long-sleeved jump suit that offered a pajama-like comfort. It was actually a good-looking combination, likening somewhat to the old Star Trek non-dress attire. In the first place, thats if the Assassin can catch em, right?

Besides, thats the idea, aint it! Thats also why some competitors become very rich and quit the comps before its lights out! And certainly if the competitor feels he cant keep ahead of the Assassin or get lucky enough to find a safe room- maybe even a stealth door - for whatevers left of the five-minute chase...Well, he - or she - can always fight it out!...And they do win sometimes... Often enough to risk it anyway! Post World War III premise: To insure that the peace will last, mankind has been given the Lottery competitions as an outlet for violence.

Designed to attract the risk-takers, dissenters and criminals, the lost, and the weak of mind- the Lottery has become a conspiracy of global proportions beyond what had been legally sanctioned by public will and vote. LOTTERY is a cat and mouser, a high tech, science fiction, action thriller, filled with plots and counterplots, twists and surprises, and an illusive, undetectable chemical used on a massive scale to shorten lives.

Painted on a world canvas, the opposition between the overt Lottery Corporation juggernaut and the covert but knowledgeable few of Vortex takes you from Rio to San Francisco, Piraeus to Shanghai, Antwerp to Nag Hammadi, Sydney to Bo, Toronto to Prague, and London to Saint Petersburg. LOTTERY combines the grittiness of BLADE RUNNER, the mayhem and death-dealing of TERMINATOR, while weaving a mystery throughout as compelling as 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, ANDROMEDA STRAIN, and MOON combined.
