The sequel to my debut cyberpunk novel, Under the Amoral Bridge: A Cyberpunk Novel, is called The Know Circuit. It's available in the Kindle Store
and on Smashwords
. It continues The Bridge Chronicles
, the exciting tales of the future's amoral fixer with the razor wit, Artemis Bridge.
Artemis Bridge is the know-who, go-to guy, the no-questions-asked fixer for all illegal, immoral and unethical desires in the seedy underworld of 2028 Los Angeles. The Know Circuit
finds Artemis Bridge drawn to the city of Boulder, Colorado by a psychic attack that strikes every person implanted with a cybernetic interface jack west of the Rockies. The attack follows the appearance of an impenetrable dome surrounding the city, cutting off all communications with the residents. Any attempt to penetrate the dome results in death and destruction; a news chopper is downed by a column of fire, all electrical power in the areas surrounding the dome is drained. To make matters worse, Bridge's bodyguard Aristotle reveals that the grandmother who raised him lives in the affected area, and pressures Bridge to aid him in a vain rescue attempt. Bridge reluctantly agrees, enlisting the aid of ex-footballer turned gangster Stonewall Ricardo for muscle. The three leave Los Angeles for the frosty climes of Boulder, crossing corporate boundaries from the shiny happy face of Chronosoft's California to the survivalist hostility of the Legios Corporation. At every obstacle, Bridge is pushed forward by one strange occurrence after another, from cars that transform into robotic golems to haunting dreams demanding his help. Nothing could prepare the cynical Bridge for his rendezvous with a gigantic flame dragon, who leads him to an unbelievable confrontation with the architects of the disaster.
If you like engrossing characters, acerbic wit and intriguing mysteries in a science-fiction setting, these novels are right up your alley.
