Back in April, I wrote a science fiction short story introducing another member of my ragtag team of techno rebels that will star in a series I have yet to write (cross your fingers for 2019). This protagonist’s name is Chameleon, Chamo for short, and she’s a genius computer hacker with an addiction to the difficult and impossible. The story starts off with her in the middle of a data heist when she gets wind of the ultimate challenge. She’s definitely going to be the trouble maker of the team.
Like Biting Shadow, this story is in another anthology called The Renegade which just came out. So yay! You can check it out here.
It’s fun to take small detours like this where I can get a tiny bit of world building done while still working on my fantasy series. Eventually, I’ll have the entire team assembled. 🙂
I’ve also been reading/watching this year’s Hugo nominations. I love doing this because it exposes me to movies, shows, and books that I might have missed.
One surprise I’d like to call out is Season 4, Episode 1 of Black Mirror called USS Callister. You can find it on Netflix and just wow. If Star Trek: Original mated with Twilight Zone and had a baby, this would be its name. I had heard about this series but never watched any of the episodes until this week. If you really enjoy creepy horror involving future technology that’s far beyond our reach, then this show is for you.
You can check out all the nominations and my reviews as I finish them here.
That’s all for now. Enjoy the 4th if you are in the US, summer if you are on the topside of the planet, and winter if you are down below! 🙂
