Espionage in a Cyberpunk World

Information is king. In a world where empires rise and fall with the news cycle, where machines gorge on seas of data and produce oceans of information, where a single publicized fact is more devastating than an atomic bomb, information is the lifeblood of civilizations. In Singularity Sunrise, where advances in critical technologies produce a […]

Babylon Blues Part 8

Story Behind the Story The team reconvened at their secondary rally point. Hartsock National Park, a thin strip of green that bifurcated Cape Rockaway, an arm of land that jutted out into Babylon Bay and gently curled back like a horn. Located in the shadow of Babylon International Airport, aircraft screeched overhead at regular intervals. […]

Babylon Blues Part 5

Prairie Fire When the New Gods and the government were after you, paranoia became your way of life. Yamamoto led Fox on a long surveillance detection run.

Red River Part 10

Shots Fired “Shots fired, shots fired inside the office,” Fox called. “Anybody got eyes on?” Yamamoto asked. “I can’t see inside the office from here.” “Negative visual here,” Wood said. “Lycan?” “I’m…” He inhaled sharply. “I’m tapped out.
