The Long Vigil

From the USA Today Bestselling Author of The Circuit Trilogy and Titanborn Series comes this harrowing science fiction short story.

After twenty five years serving as the lone human Monitor of the Interstellar Ark, Hermes, Orion is scheduled to be placed back in his hibernation chamber with the other members of the crew. Knowing that he will die there and be replaced before the ship's voyage is over, he decides that he won't accept that fate. Whatever it takes he will escape Hermes and see space again, even if it means defying the regulations of his only friend -- the ship-wide artificial intelligence known as Dan.
2084

The world wears computerized contact lenses that control technology with the blink of an eye. Consumers are as thrilled as they are surveilled.

Newsight Incorporated became a household name when it released its debut product: Lenses. Now, Newsight is more than a household name…it’s in the household. It sees everything its customers see, both in the real world and in the simulated one. But not everyone is content to be watched. A teenage boy named Vincent, a Senator’s son, and his friend Jessica, a Newsight developer’s daughter, flee into the ranks of a clandestine protest group. With the group’s help, Vincent and Jessica disable their Lenses and see the world clearly for the first time. The sight that awaits them, however, may have better remained unseen.

She will be assisted by Gog, the most powerful robot ever built. Lucinda Montavi is unaware her mission will expose the dark secret behind the Consortium, terrorists, and Manna, but Gog will soon unleash the darkest secret of all.

He set out to prove a theory. Now he's racing to save the galaxy from his mistake.

A Star Curiously Singing

Sandfly is a debugger. He is property, bought and paid for in an Earth under sharia law. All faiths but one have been banned. And the rule of the great Imam is supreme.

As a debugger, Sandfly has an implant in his head that connects him to the world’s technology—and doles out mental shocks to keep him obedient. All he wants is to fix bots and avoid shocks

Now he's been called into Earth orbit. The masters have a new spacecraft—one capable of interstellar flight. On its maiden voyage, the only robot on board went mad and tore itself apart.

Why? Better question: does it pose any risk to humans?

When Sandfly reviews the bot’s final moments, he perceives something unexpected. Something impossible.

As Sandfly pieces together the clues, a trap spreads beneath his feet. If he solves the mystery, he may doom himself. And if he fixes the robot, he may shatter his world.

Suspenseful, unique, and awash in cyberpunk jive, A Star Curiously Singing presents a bleak future that might be closer than we think.
