The second installment of my cyberpunk thriller Override has been published in Dark Matter Magazine Issue 008. Override is a three-part serial novella that started in Issue 007 and will be concluded in Issue 009 in May 2022.
In Part One, Delek Foster volunteered himself to Syntech be converted into an AI-driven automaton in exchange for Syntech taking care of his wife (Neera) and his sickly son (Sev) for the rest of their lives. But something went wrong, and the deal fell through. Delek was taken away by Syntech, leaving Neera and Sev with nothing. Part One ends with Neera setting out on a mission to free Delek from Syntech.
