The City of Mie

Gen was angry and she knew it. Angry about her overprotective parents, angry about the way she was teased about her height, and angry about the dirt and grime that infested every corner of Mars. 


But soon, she'd be on rotations. Too few went Outside on purpose anymore, just to shiver against the icy cold or feel the pressure in the slowly thickening air. But just the very idea of the Outside thrilled her deeply. And hardly anyone died on rotations anymore. Generations of smart mechs, and gobs of green Earthers, who’d do anything for a meal, did all the dangerous, dirty work. Not fresh, young citizens of the Republic of Mars.


Her Father wanted to drag it out. To keep her Inside until it was illegal to leave. He said there’d always be trains and shuttles to visit distant domes and underground habitats. But Gen knew you’d just be pretending you were Outside then. It wasn’t the same as walking on the dusty soil, eyes open, mind alive. It wasn’t tending the high firs or farming the meltwater.


But soon, an ancient prophecy of destruction would come to her in haunting visions, and it would be up to Gen to warn them all - and maybe even save worlds.


THE CITY OF MIE is the fourth book in the Water Worlds™ sci-fi adventure series, chronicling the terraforming of the inner worlds of the Solar System as seen through the eyes of generations of young women. Seven books are planned for the series.

Sami wasn’t born in the tunnels. She's traveled all over, even as far as the Northern caves beyond Eastport. Only nobodies went farther than that. Story was, there were towns beyond the Dustbowl, but most folk thought that was just stories. 

 

It’s been almost a century since the sky fell and the world broke apart in a day, and still the people spent their whole lives underground, either in the Five Tunnels, or in the caves, shielded by living stone. Sami’s mom and dad are long since dead, and her friends, Sef and Glyn, vanished without a trace, over a year ago, or were chased from the tunnel by the Judge. Now her dearest pal, Simma, was leaving, too, to live under the water in tunnel Tee Two, with her mom and her mom’s new boyfriend.  

 

Sami used to feel safe in the tunnels. Used to feel at home. But now, she wasn’t so sure. There was something in the air.  For decades, crowds of people have waved through the tunnels, following the green arrows, pushing up and out Eastport, heading North. They heard the air was better there, and most didn’t like the tunnels one bit anyway. But now, nobodies and someones alike were disappearing, and voices came to her in the dark, warning her of a great danger to come.  


In an adventure of courage and hope, Sami seeks answers and uncovers a mystery that spans worlds.


THE FIVE TUNNELS is the second book in the Water Worlds™ sci-fi adventure series, chronicling the terraforming of the inner worlds of the Solar System as seen through the eyes of generations of young women. Seven books are planned for the series.

Book 1
NOW AN EXCITING NEW SERIES FROM NETFLIX • The shell that blew a hole in his chest was only the beginning in this “tour de force of genre-bending, a brilliantly realized exercise in science fiction.”—The New York Times Book Review

In the twenty-fifth century, humankind has spread throughout the galaxy, monitored by the watchful eye of the U.N. While divisions in race, religion, and class still exist, advances in technology have redefined life itself. Now, assuming one can afford the expensive procedure, a person’s consciousness can be stored in a cortical stack at the base of the brain and easily downloaded into a new body (or “sleeve”) making death nothing more than a minor blip on a screen.

Ex-U.N. envoy Takeshi Kovacs has been killed before, but his last death was particularly painful. Dispatched one hundred eighty light-years from home, re-sleeved into a body in Bay City (formerly San Francisco, now with a rusted, dilapidated Golden Gate Bridge), Kovacs is thrown into the dark heart of a shady, far-reaching conspiracy that is vicious even by the standards of a society that treats “existence” as something that can be bought and sold.

Praise for Altered Carbon

“Compelling . . . immensely entertaining . . . [Richard] Morgan’s writing is vivid and his plotting inventive.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer
 
“A fascinating trip . . . Pure high-octane science fiction mixes with the classic noir private-eye tale.”—Orlando Sentinel
 
“Gritty and vivid . . . looks as if we have another interstellar hero on our hands.”—USA Today
