Hello! Long time no see! Welcome back to my first #sffsat snippet of 2014! The last few months have been horrendously busy, with both good and bad news, but hopefully it'll be all sunshine from now on, though no less hectic.
Today I'm going to share a snippet from Reboot, the cyberpunk short story I'm releasing at the end of this month (pop back Monday 24th for the cover reveal!). We begin with a rude awakening for my central character...
Online. Active. Integration complete.
The words printed across his inner vision, green on black. Confusion raged at the back of his mind, coupled with a rising nausea, but a cool, calm part of his brain registered understanding. His last self must’ve been damaged or died. He’d just been rebooted.
“Can you hear me?”
That wasn’t in his head. It came from outside, a masculine voice.
He swallowed, not sure he could frame the words with his throat dry and his tongue a heavy weight in his mouth. He gulped again. “Yes.” His own voice sounded alien to his ears. A growl of a sound.
