+Karen DeLabar (the mastermind behind Writing on the Rocks, http://writingontherocks.com) has posted an in-depth review of +Michael Shean's +Shadow of a Dead Star.

Here's a brief excerpt:
Shean’s twisted tale blends technology, depravity and greed with the popular elements of science fiction and noir together into a seamless plot with few slow spots and plenty of action. His writing is fluid and the story had just enough complexity to keep you reading to find out the answers but not too much that you’d be left scratching your head.

Glowing Review of Shadow of a Dead Star: ... I enjoyed this book immensely, and will be checking out the rest of Michael’s work out as soon as I have time.

As another reviewer said somewhere, “If it gets into enough hands, Shadow of a Dead Star is going to have a huge following.”

It's 8pm on Sunday, March 18. Just a few short hours away from the moment when Shadow of a Dead Star stops being free.

So far, 4,636 people have downloaded the book. Can we make it to 5,000 before the promo's over?

Let's make it happen, cyberpunk fans!

Mother Is Watching
Introduction

Seattle, 2078. The future hasn’t been kind to the spirit of humanity; commercial obsession and technological fetishism rules the day, religion and belief has died screaming in the fires of war, and what remains is moral decrepitude. Life in the future is hard on the soul. 

As an agent of the Industrial Security Bureau, it is Thomas Walken’s duty to keep the city of Seattle free of black-market technology. But when a trio of living sex-dolls he has recently intercepted are stolen from custody, Walken finds himself seeking a great deal more than just contraband; he will be forced to use his skills and preternatural instincts to try and keep his career, his freedom, and his life.

As questions mount and the list of living suspects begin to shrink with alarming speed, Walken must hurry to find the truth – but finding it will challenge his understanding not only of the world in which he lives, but of a world which may exist beyond it for which he cannot be prepared.

A dark and brooding tale, Shadow of a Dead Star follows one man’s plunge through depravity, vice, and ultimately existential conflict in a technologically-obsessed world of the near future.

-----

Shadow of a Dead Star was written by Michael Shean, edited by Vicki Keire, and published in November, 2011 by Curiosity Quills Press.

It is available at these retailers for $2.99 digital and $14.99 print:
