Atrocious Adventure Publishing announces the release of "Machina Obscura," the debut novel by first-time science-fiction author Carol E. Meacham.
Set on Earth in the year 2230, the novel focuses on a twenty-year-old NetRunner named Xyl and her enigmatic new partner Gracie as they become involved in unraveling a plot created by a corrupt Federal agent. Following a trail that might have been planted by Agent Searles himself, the two find themselves chasing clues and broken links through the virtual world of 2230 to discover two evolved artificial intelligences poised to monitor in real-time all criminal activities taking place in the virtual world. Realizing that her own friends and the world they have scraped out for themselves on the streets are at risk, Xyl must find a way to warn all of NetSpace of the plot before the two artificial intelligences initiate their monitoring program.
