A couple of weeks ago, I attended a WGF (Writers Guild Foundation) event here in Los Angeles. It was a live sit-down interview with writer-producer Frank Spotnitz.

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.

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 …
