Breaking! We’re thrilled, delighted, excited – insert other happy adjectives here – to announce the signing of new author, K C Alexander.
You may know K C as Karina Cooper, author of steampunk urban fantasy series the St Croix Chronicles which gained critical acclaim and won her an RT Reviewer’s Choice Award.
We’re excited to be bringing you her first sci-fi novel, Necrotech, a transhumanist cyberpunk thriller that author Stephen Blackmoore has described as “a tight, violent thrillride in a fascinating cyberpunk world with one of the most interesting women protagonists I’ve read in a long time”.
Speaking of transhumanism, our lovely friends over at SF Signal helped us to announce the new signing, which was accompanied by a great blog post by K C on transhumanism and growing up surrounded by ever-advancing tech. Check it out here.
And here’s the synopsis for Necrotech:
Street thug Riko has some serious issues—memories wiped, reputation tanked, girlfriend turned into a tech-fueled zombie. And the only people who can help are the mercenaries who think she screwed them over.
In an apathetic society devoid of ethics or regulation, where fusing tech and flesh can mean a killing edge or a killer conversion, a massive conspiracy is unfolding that will alter the course of the human condition forever. With corporate meatheads on her ass and a necro-tech blight between her and salvation, Riko is going to have to fight meaner, work smarter, and push harder than she’s ever had to. And that’s just to make it through the day.
Necrotech will be released September 6 (US/Can) / September 8 (UK/R.o.W).
