QSFer O. E. Tearmann has a new queer cyberpunk book out in the “Aces High Jokers Wild series: Raise the Stakes.
It starts when you’re always afraid.
Seven Corporations run the former United States on the codes of conduct their founders set down. You’re signed into a Corporate contract the day you’re born. And the fear of dropping in the Citizen Standing Scores keeps people in line. What choice is there?
The Democratic State Force has fought for the return of democracy for decades, but they need the restless population of America to fight beside them if they’re going to stand a chance. But when your Score goes down, so does your life.
It’s time for a new strategy: take out the Citizen Standing Score system. And it’s time for the unit with the highest mission success rate, the best coder, and the craziest ideas in the Force to head the attempt. Base 1407 just got the call.
Life’s a bitch. She raises the stakes when you least expect it. Play your cards as best you can.
O.E. Tearmann lives in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, in what may become the Co-Wy Grid. They share the house with a brat in fur, a husband and a great many books. Their search engine history may garner them a call from the FBI one day. When they’re not living on base 1407 they advocate for a more equitable society and more sustainable agricultural practices, participate in sundry geekdom and do their best to walk their characters’ talk.
