カンボジアへ納品したスーパーライス、SR-06に描いたロゴが崩れ始めたというのだ。原因はコーディングのミス?アップデートの失敗?それとも……
原因を探るため、林田は「キタムラ」と名乗る人物に誘われ、2014年に封鎖されたインターネットが生きている街、ホーチミンへ飛ぶ。
フルスクラッチで作物を作れるほどの遺伝子工学、現実と見分けられないほどの拡張現実が当然のものとなった2037年。

ハイスピード・ノベル「Gene Mapper(ジーン・マッパー)」が問う。

From Publishers Weekly

May 18, 2015 – Fujii's debut postulates a near-future, post-Internet world in which "augmented reality" has taken the place of in-person interactions. At the same time, overpopulation has caused a collapse in traditional agriculture, and only genetically modified crops can provide enough food. When a blight known as red rust infects a modified rice culture that Mamoru Hayashida helped create, he is given a DNA file that's much more complex than it should be. He must leave the comforts of his own computer-generated surroundings and travel to Ho Chi Minh City to work with Isamu Yagodo, a salvager who can help him unravel the red rust mystery. Fujii builds a new kind of cyberpunk novel that's well grounded in the physical world and modern computing. The extrapolations of new technology and the increasing strain on resources both come across as natural continuations of the modern world. Hubbert's translation is easy to read, though some of the more technical explanations can bog down a little, and Anglophone readers will be pleased to encounter this promising new author.
