TST Expansion: Trash Run

Part One of a HARDWIRED mini-campaign. Omar Patek frowned. There was a spread of images on McNevin’s display: body parts in a plastic tub. The organic bits were separated with a butcher’s precision, the cybernetic sockets were empty, smeared with gristle and fluids. “They kibbled him, jacked his ‘ware, and sent him back via pedicab […]

FROM FIRE TO FLAME

‘The Vladivostok Kind’ continues. Apologies for the lateness. I’ve been chipping away at this between jobs. Enjoy. 6. FROM FIRE TO FLAME Yuri kept Sasha trained on the front door.   It’s a trick, he told himself. The dogs will return – knowing even as he said it they wouldn’t. But why? His shoulder ached […]
