CYPULCHRE is a dark and twisted cyberpunk thriller that will take readers on a journey through revolt and redemption, high-tech nightmares and low-life dreams.
The inventor of the CLOUD technology—that’s swept Los Angeles’ rich and willing into the noosphere—has lived in exile for a decade, north of the mountains, feared, defamed, and despised by his former colleagues and estranged family. When he learns that the same technology that led to his downfall now threatens his family as well as the thousands synchronized to it, he must take action. Nothing is what it seems, especially with his psychoses turning allies to enemies, and enemies into demons.
ARCHETYPAL is the highly-anticipated sequel to MacKinnon’s 2014 cyberpunk thriller, Cypulchre.
The Outland Corporation’s CLOUD, a much-loved and massively-popular virtual realm, has been destroyed in a suicide bombing, which has turned all of Los Angeles upside down.
Hundreds of thousands of users who were in the CLOUD at the time of its destruction have had their data and electric selves corrupted, accidentally collectivized, and then dumbly redistributed. The fallout is catastrophic.
While Outland’s interim CEO Celeste Charming attempts to turn this tragedy into profit or worse, Dr. Oni Matsui sets out to free her captive friends and to prevent the forced evolution of humanity for which her good intentions have paved the way.
