250x400_storyteller_with_hopepunks_logo.jpgIn the future, mixed-reality is more than a mind trip...

What if you could ride a real flying jetbike in an exciting race through fantastic virtual worlds?

What if you could connect your mind to the cloud for some heart-pounding vicarious thrills?


Get in the car.

Echo Chamber Media dominates the information and entertainment feeds in Home City, and does so for the exclusive benefit of a multinational eMind called Power. When Lucid joins a team in a mixed-reality tournament that could rid the feeds of ECM's hate, she sets off a chain of events that puts everyone in the city at risk if they lose.

Will Lucid win the game? Vanquish the villain? Change the world? And get her shot at living happily ever after? Will her ragtag group of local culture jammers prevail over the global corporate echo chamber of despair?

It becomes a race to the finish when the greatest threat of all steps into the arena and challenges Lucid to her very core.

Would you be ready for a moment of absolute clarity?

Contains wholehearted heroes, cartoonishly evil villains, cotagonists to friends, hopepunk futurism, and big grin fun! If books like Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, Warcross by Marie Lu, Neuromancer by William Gibson, and Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson give you a rush because of the virtual reality, amusing plots and enjoyable characters, then Story Teller may have some thrills for you!

If you enjoy books like The Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells and the Wayfarers series by Becky Chambers for their quirky sci-fi kindness, then the Hopepunks series may be for you too. Related genres might include humorous science fiction, action-adventure, technothriller, cyberpunk, solarpunk, and satire.

Each Hopepunks novel is a complete standalone story that arrives at a satisfying conclusion. The main characters in each book do not continue into the next one as the main characters. However, all the books share a common story world, some recurring characters, and a similar plot structure with a similar set of main characters. More of the same, but different!

Warning! Warning! Danger Will Robinson! The Hopepunks novels contain political/social satire that is based on the ridicule of the current set of so-called "ruling class" idiots and their opinion of us proles. If you don't like good trouble-making in your science fiction, then move along. Nothing to see here... Nope, nothing to miss...

Absolutely NO AI-generated content. This is ironic (don't you think?) given that the stories feature at least two AI-like entities.
