Driesch’s Night Market is where illicit copies of consciousnesses are bought and sold. It’s also where Glassed-up junkies, night fishers, and the super-fines come out to play.
No protection, no money, and far too many fresh scars: Izabeth is running out of options. Trading a copy of her own neural network for Limm-Glass implants seems the easiest way out. At least, that’s the plan…
“The Night Fishers” the second 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).
