Long-time cyberpunk fan, Len Gizinski recently wrote his first novel, “The Metal Within.” The book was inspired more than 20 years ago, beginning as an idea for a futuristic role-playing game.

“The Metal Within” is the debut novel in an intended science fiction series set in a dystopian 2048, carrying age-old messages of morality and good versus evil. Cyber technology plays a key role in the new apocalyptic tale, bringing a new perspective to what is typically seen in the genre.

The book opens with a focus on one of the main characters, Jack, who lives in what remains of the mid-21st century, which has been ravaged by missile strikes, riots, and civil wars. Throughout the storyline, readers will be introduced to prominent characters as they encounter a covert organization that targets threats to citizens.

“What I’ve found over the years is there is a lack of uplifting science fiction for young adults, especially in Christian fiction,” said Gizinski. “I believe it’s important to take on filling this void for those who are drawn to science fiction stories more than the medieval and fantasy genres.”

Readers will be enthralled with the intriguing dialogue, excellent pace, frequent drama, and intricate storyline as the colorful characters attempt to make their way through the harrowing world in which they live.
