The World of Liquid Cool

Austin Dragon Cyberpunk, Liquid Cool, Science Fiction, Series Overview 64 Comments

My “Blade Runner-ish” cyberpunk detective thriller series is here and I couldn’t be happier. Laser guns, jet-packs, hovercraft, cyborgs, and that’s just the first novel. To come will be robots and androids, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and lunar colonies. I feel like a little kid waiting for presents on Christmas Eve. Well, in this case, as the author, I’m Santa …

Category Conundrum: The After Eden Series

I think most people know the iconic story of the Diary of Anne Frank. Anne and her family hid in an attic for two years during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, and were eventually captured. Well, let’s say instead of 1942, we have a fictionalized version of the story set in the year 2432, with hovercraft, robots, bio-engineered birds …

This is actually my first post of the new year. My controversial “Top 10 Reasons Why Star Wars Sucks” was posted on the 1st, but was actually my last post of 2015. So what’s the plan for 2016? On the home page of my website, I did lay out most of it. Do everything bigger and better! Lots of people …

Liquid Cool: The Characters (The Villains)

Austin Dragon Cyberpunk, Liquid Cool, Science Fiction, Series Overview, Sneak Peek Leave a Comment

Superman has Lex Luther. Professor X has Magneto. Bat Man has the Joker. Sherlock Holmes has Moriarity. Every good protagonist needs a good antagonist. Well, in Metropolis there isn’t one, but a seemingly endless stream of them. In my cyberpunk, corporations are not the bad guy. That was considered “edgy” prognosticating back in the 1980s–we know better now. In my …

The Two-Headed Snake Part II: Uber-Governments

Austin Dragon Cyberpunk, Series Overview Leave a Comment

Sir Ridley Scott’s 1984 Apple Commercial. — one of greatest commercials of all time (and before he was ‘Sir’) “A Garden of Pure Ideology…We Are One People…We Shall Prevail!”   Now we’re in a world that has depth and reality to me. Not a cyberpunk universe of just evil mega-corporations. A complex cyberpunk universe of mega-corporations and uber-governments. Besides not …

The Two-Headed Snake Part I: Mega-Corporations

Austin Dragon Cyberpunk, Series Overview Leave a Comment

Alien. Robo-Cop. Just a couple of the science-fiction movies where dastardly mega-corporations rule. But that rule is never benevolent–always for profit and power. There is never a concern for the average Joe or Jane on the street. Cyberpunk fiction amplified the portrayal of the corporation (maybe, even capitalism) as the bad guy. Well, I have never been anti-capitalist. I knew people …

Serious Science Fiction: Robots Are Going to Steal Your Job!

For June, 2015 I’m going to continue with cyberpunk as this month’s theme, that sub-genre of science fiction that has a very grim, dark, seedy view of our collective future. I will soon publish my take on the sub-genre which I outlined in my blog post last month titled: Cyberpunk Re-imagined – you can click HERE to view it. Basically, …

Series Overview I may never have written a word of fiction in more than 15 years, but there was never a time that the ideas were not flowing. Why this seven-book series, with at least two companion novels, would ‘force’ me to put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard), I don’t know? It’s a beast. Over seventy years in …
