It’s a dystopian cyberpunk thriller set in a world where free will can be sold to the highest bidder. While it’s not quite a sequel, it’s set in the same world as my story Set For Life, which was published in Dark Matter Magazine Issue 004. The first installment will appear in Issue 007 in January 2022, with the second two installments arriving in subsequent issues.
