Can a powerless hacker survive in a world of living weapons?


Thrown into an Arctic bunker as a teenager, Spencer Harrington’s been put on ice by an overbearing super soldier of a father. His mother kidnapped as he watched, Spencer was certain his Dad would find her. But after nearly two years, the trail has run cold.


Now a socially maladjusted nineteen year old, Spencer has decided it’s up to him to do what his father can’t and uncover his mother’s fate.


Armed only with a multi-tool and an arsenal of weapons-grade snark, Spencer launches into a world of robots and living weapons. Along the way he rallies a team of retiree Augments and everyday people living in the shadow of a weapons program gone wrong.


On the brink of Armageddon, with his mother's very existence at stake, Spencer soon stumbles into the true mastermind's web only to discover he's been the prey all along...


Crimson Son is the first book in the Crimson Son Universe, a series of gritty cyberpunk-inspired superhero tales with witty characters, heart-pounding adventure, and helmed by a vulnerable hero with an unmistakable voice.

About the author

Russ Linton has done a lot of stuff in his life. Philosopher, stay at home father, graphic designer, cryptocurrency miner, and yes, even government agent. But what he enjoys most is imagining fantastic places and exploring them through unique, and sometimes odd, perspectives.

A bugman acolyte raised by human monks on the edge of an eternal storm? Check. A powerless hacker punching above his weight class in a world of superheroes? Double check.

If you’ve come looking for more of the same, well, that’s one thing he doesn’t do.

Most of all, he likes to invite others along for these journeys. Hop aboard. No telling where he’ll take you next.

 "Linton has drawn his epic world best in the reflections of those impacted by it, be they Augment or human. Like an origami creation, he builds his tales in subtle layers, crisp folds of storytelling that make a shape far different than first expected." - Fanboy Comics - 5 star review

“Linton takes the horror of the atomic bomb’s emergence in WWII and transforms it into the emergence of laboratory-grown super soldiers — but with similarly horrific consequences and the same desperate global struggle to cram the genie back into the bottle afterward. It gives the entire story world a grittiness and gravitas that we rarely see in superhero stories. And that darkness makes it chilling.”  - Jefferson Smith of Immerse or Die

Empty Quiver (n) – A U.S. Military term to identify and report the seizure, theft, or loss of a nuclear weapon.

Hurricane. Ember. Aurora. Danger. State-sponsored superhumans known as Augments. Weapons created to end a war.

With the war over, their creators couldn't surrender the power and sought to hide it in the shadows. They forged ahead with covert operations and proxy wars despite growing condemnation. But one by one, Augments begin to ignore their handlers or disappear altogether. The quiver emptied. 

Empty Quiver takes a dark dive into the Crimson Son universe. Not your typical superhero tales, this short collection pulls no punches as it examines the clandestine program that changed Spencer’s world.
