"The Lives and Deaths of Javier Jenkins", A LitRPG Memoir
Stricken blind at a young age due to a rare degenerative condition, 19 year old Javier Jenkins takes part in a University program remotely hosted on a Virtual MMO known as 'Atlas'. In Atlas, Javier not only regains his sight but can also interact with the Space-Opera themed setting of the game in ways he never could in the confines of the real-life Planet Earth. In between virtually immersed college courses, Javier takes to the stars with his classmates for loot and leveling. But when he discovers a way to make money that does not require a college certification, Javier finds himself at a crossroads. Does he continue his studies and join his peers for a conventional career- or does he risk everything and everyone for a shot at blazing his own path as a Professional Gamer™?
