The Mind-Riders - Brian Stableford

A man gets dragged out of his stunt simulator job to return to an early profession. Networked simulation boxing, where he was the only one to beat the current years long reigning champion. Rich guy that both fired him in the past and has now rehired him not giving him the whole story, of course. Fired for not being a charismatic fighter that would make the media lots of money from all the emotion vampires, not for not being any good. Fighters inhabit simulations with Batmanesque physiques, so it is up to who is the best at running them. People choose a fighter to plug into and experience in a bit of a druglike fashion. 3.5 out of 5
