In the event you were unaware

I have a tendency to assume that most AG readers are also VP readers, and I'm occasionally surprised to learn that this is not only not the case, but there are some readers here who are completely unaware that I even have another blog, let alone write the occasional book. So, I thought the AG-only readers might like to know that two weeks ago, I published a pair of science fiction mysteries, one novel and one novella.

QUANTUM MORTIS: A Man Disrupted is not a novel that is based on Game, but is rife with human socio-sexual relations that the Game-aware reader will recognize is entirely consistent with the basic precepts of Game. It's a murder mystery set far in the future, in a world where AI personalities are citizens and the military police don't hesitate to enforce the traffic laws with air-to-air missiles. If you enjoy the content here at Alpha Game, there is a better-than-even chance that you will enjoy both the novel and QUANTUM MORTIS: Gravity Kills, a novella that features the same no-holds-barred detective, Chief Warrant Officer Graven Tower, MCID-XAR.

Thus endeth the commercial. A regular post will follow later today.

Put some of my other reading on the back-burner so I could check these out while the're still hot off the press. The "Gravity Kills" novella was a fun, quick read and the ending wasn't as predictable as I thought it would be. I'm only through the first five chapters of "A Man Disrupted" but am enjoying it, and already starting to see some Game concepts too.

One thing I enjoy about the books and stories are they avoid (mostly) those moments where the characters do something that just doesn't jive with real life experience. Zelazny and Saberhagen were both very very good at that as well, their characters were consistent with reality and consistent with themselves.

It would be interesting to see one of the characters be an extreme gamma, just to see how the other characters interact with them and work around their mental disfunction. Could Steve and Vox treat such a character with sympathy and make them realistic and not just a Tom Clancy caricature?

Sounds interesting.

I read both. Hell, I remember you from your debut, at WND, I think.

Why not write a book on Game?
