Here is the NLS annotation:
 
Gabriel is one of the Aristoi, highly advanced humans who use their mastery of virtual reality to explore distant places in the electronic world of the Hyperlogos. He soon learns that a rebellious Aristoi threatens to tamper with the society's entire data system.
 
And here is a brief review from Library Journal taken from Amazon’s page for Aristoi:
 
In the far future, an elite class of individuals--called aristoi--rules an interstellar
empire through the benign, disciplined mastery of advanced technologies. Beneath
the facade of universal prosperity, however, lurks a tide of dissension and madness
that can only be fought from within. Williams ( Voice of the Whirlwind , LJ 5/15/87;
Days of Atonement , LJ 3/15/91) tests the borders of imagination in a novel that
combines brilliant hard science and speculative vision with a firm grip on the central
humanity of his characters.
