Marlowe Kana

Book 5

 It's 51 years after the Second American Civil War. The 40 million citizens of the United American State are aghast to find that their biggest celebrity, Major Marlowe Kana of the Imagen Military and Security Division (MilSec), has just been found guilty of treason. Every Feed on the Net has been covering the events of her trial, and two questions remain to be answered: What will happen to MK, and what will the nation watch now that the Next Top Soldier Hall-of-Famer (and star of the most-watched Feed in history) is locked away? The answer comes almost immediately and shakes the country to its core.

About the author

Joe Peacock is an author, screenwriter, producer, web developer and culturenaut. His latest book is the start of the Marlowe Kana series, a three book, fifteen volume story borne of his love of cyberpunk, near future sci-fi, anime and vaporwave. 2017 has seen a massive resurgence of Peacock's work. He wrote and produced the critically-acclaimed documentary series Screenland (on Hulu and RedBull.TV), released the new Marlowe Kana series, and consulting on the new tour of the Art of Akira Exhibit (which he owns and curates). Previously, Peacock wrote two books of hyperbolic autobiography, both called Mentally Incontinent, and Everyone Deserves To Know What I Think, which collects from his work from CNN, Huffington Post, AOLNews, PC Magazine, and his blog. He also worked for Fark.com, which if you know what that is, I'm sure you're very impressed with.

 "Dude! I blew through Volume 1 on the plane to Omaha! So good! I'm so hooked!"-- Matt Chapman, Co-Creator, Homestar Runner
"If William Gibson had any literary heirs -- the family tree would include Warren Ellis, Jonathan Hickman, and now... Joe Peacock, a powerful youngster in a genre that could use a jolt to the system. Peacock writes with expediency and para-military precision. His characters don't just leap off of the page -- they strap on jetpacks -- and blast out of it. If you are into Black Mirror, Bruce Sterling, or the cyberpunk genre, this IS the book you need to have in your life."-- David Gallaher, Vampire: The Masquerade, Green Lantern, Incredible Hulk, Iron Man

"If Ghost in the Shell and Neal Stephenson's novels are things that catch your interest, you owe it to yourself to check out cyberpunk expert Joe Peacock's first scifi novel."-- Olliver Kirby, Funimation

Volume 3 picks up immediately after the events of Volume 2 and Volume 1, and completes Book 1 (spoilers ahead): Marlowe, Jen, and Poet find the mysterious owner of the MKFan_9999 Feed and are on their way to obtain evidence clearing Marlowe's name, when they are confronted by the entire MilSec force of the city of Atlanta! An epic battle rages and the citizens are more engaged than ever. Meanwhile, the holes in President Cook's plan are showing; his grasp on the Marlowe situation quickly loosening to the point of desperation. With no other options, he openly challenges Marlowe to compete one last time on United America's Next Top Soldier. The prize: freedom for herself, her team, and her father. It's a UANTS finale unlike any other in history! The final moments bring about a new set of challenges no one in the country has ever seen before -- not just for Marlowe and her team, but for the entire nation. It's the finale to Marlowe Kana Book 1, and it's the best volume yet!

Vividly imagined, stunningly prophetic, and epic in scope, The Diamond Age is a major novel from one of the most visionary writers of our time

Decades into our future, a stone’s throw from the ancient city of Shanghai, a brilliant nanotechnologist named John Percival Hackworth has just broken the rigorous moral code of his tribe, the powerful neo-Victorians. He's made an illicit copy of a state-of-the-art interactive device called A Young Ladys Illustrated Primer  Commissioned by an eccentric duke for his grandchild, stolen for Hackworth's own daughter, the Primer’s purpose is to educate and raise a girl capable of thinking for herself. It performs its function superbly. Unfortunately for Hackworth, his smuggled copy has fallen into the wrong hands.

Young Nell and her brother Harv are thetes—members of the poor, tribeless class.  Neglected by their mother, Harv looks after Nell.  When he and his gang waylay a certain neo-Victorian—John Percival Hackworth—in the seamy streets of their neighborhood, Harv brings Nell something special: the Primer.

Following the discovery of his crime, Hackworth begins an odyssey of his own. Expelled from the neo-Victorian paradise, squeezed by agents of Protocol Enforcement on one side and a Mandarin underworld crime lord on the other, he searches for an elusive figure known as the Alchemist.  His quest and Nell’s will ultimately lead them to another seeker whose fate is bound up with the Primer—a woman who holds the key to a vast, subversive information network that is destined to decode and reprogram the future of humanity.
