Debts must be paid, & black market Limm-Glass makers, Lottie & Elham, are struggling to get the job done. Meanwhile, Lottie’s implanted Limm-Glass AI is malfunctioning.

“Shattered” is the first in a series of 12 stories set in the city of Driesch. In this cyberpunk-ish city, consciousness is a commodity. And the self is an augmented, fractured creation. Death detectives work with memories in storied Limm-Glass. Children are outfitted with secondary Glassed-personalities. Black market operators acquire and trade virtual Glassed-slaves, and man-made tools utilize modified and unmodified versions of both the living & the dead.

Every month of 2021 will include a new original story in this world, available to read on the Vernacular Books website or to purchase as an eBook. At the end of the year, the pieces will be collected into the mosaic novel STORIES OF DRIESCH (ebook & print).
