Just how bad can things get for Sally Stone?
Cincinnati Stories, the first fully illustrated collection of short stories from the world of cyberpunkdreams, is coming to Kickstarter this September. In the meantime, whet your appetite with this 9,500 word first instalment.
“LOVED it… Rob Chant drags us head first into a world of sex, crime & survival as the neon-lit gutters in Cincinnati Stories draws us in with the promise of a good time away from prying eyes and it’s a book that delivers with every single word.” – Gary Watson, Comics Anonynous
The body was lying face down in the street. The head was a mess; I think some was missing, already taken by feral dogs. A hand was badly chewed too. I’d chased off a mutt when I’d arrived, ready to knife it if it went for me.
I rattled off a couple of shots, wide angle. There was a big spray of blood, behind and in front of where the body was lying. They’d gone at him with an axe, apparently. The blood was already coagulating in the heat, bits of skull and brain material stuck in it. That was good. That was very good. Brains always sold well…
Sally’s just a photographer who’s seen something she shouldn’t, caught in the crossfire between warring gangs in this sexy, dirty cyberpunk dystopia. How far will she go to survive?
Cyberpunk, down to the bone
cyberpunkdreams is real. It's an extrapolation of now. No big event or technological discovery has shaped our future. The aliens have not arrived. The singularity has not happened. It's been a slow slide into a rich dystopian world where tales of sleaze, debauchery and hustle are forged. Gangs, drugs, sex, violence. Welcome to a bottomless pit of poverty and exploitation.
