James Cartwright was robbed of his life and left to rot in long-term care after a devastating stroke. Then, after 20 years as a forgotten man in bed 6 of the Royal Albert hospital, James is digitised by a mysterious company looking to capitalise on untapped digital resources in the online game Platinum Online.

Jim will work with the company's erratic AI 'System' to overcome the grief he feels at his own death and being forgotten by the people he knew. James has only one real option: Sell valuable materials in-game to pay for his continued existence while System finds a way to break him out and bring him back.

Will Jim find a way to escape the digital world and reunite with the daughter that abandoned him? Read The Forgotten Man to find out.

This GameLit/LitRPG novel is inspired by games such as Heroes of Might and Magic, Eador, and the RPG and economic systems of various MMORPGs. The story will take a few chapters to get into the action, but you can look forward to small group combat that increases in size to small army combat as the narrative progresses.
