Liquid Cool Release Explosion: The Electric Sheep Massacre!

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

I loved Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. The classic sci-fi movie Blade Runner is loosely based on the story, but they are both great works in their own separate mediums. You can always tell when something has an impact on the culture. In this case, we have all heard of the term “electric sheep.” So that …

This month’s three-part blog post continues with the scoop on the next Liquid Cool series release of Book Three: NeuroDancer! I have a confession to make. I have never read the William Gibson novel, Neuromancer, considered to be the classic that launched the sci-fi genre, cyberpunk. I tried to read it twice, but like Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash, I couldn’t get …

My Liquid Cool new release explosion is next month! Liquid Cool Book Two: Blade Gunner will be here! The response to my sci-fi/cyberpunk, private detective series has been phenomenal and I haven’t even begun the real promotion for the series. The simple reason was I only had the debut novel. But in March 2017, there will be four novels! Yes, it’s …

It’s 2017! Hope you had a great Christmas and New Year’s holiday! It’s also the beginning of Year 5 for me as an independent author, with 11 published titles. So what’s the plan for 2017?

Will Technology Just Kill Us All? (Part I)

Austin Dragon Cyberpunk, Liquid Cool, Science Fiction, Serious Science Fiction Leave a Comment

When people think technology, they automatically think of technology—computers, smart-phones, and such, but the post-industrial revolution transformation of the westernized world is far more profound than that. No indoor plumbing, no electricity, no telephone, no mechanical transportation (cars, trains and planes). Yes, for most of the millennia that humans have existed on Earth we didn’t have any of that. You …

World building Part II: The (Sexy) Cyberpunk Way of Liquid Cool

Austin Dragon Cyberpunk, Science Fiction, Series Overview, Writing Leave a Comment

Atmosphere In my futuristic After Eden series, there are no hover-craft. Terrorism concerns prevent any future of flying cars in cities—except for quasi ones that simply hover above the street. However, in Liquid Cool, it’s quite the opposite. Hover-cars, hover-trucks, hover-bikes, jet-packed police—the sky is filled with something or someone flying around.
