"Open Source hits the ground running and never slows down." - Bruce Bethke, Philip K. Dick Award-winning author credited with coining the word "cyberpunk"

"In a plausible near future... Privacy is a lie, digital torture is real, and the well-off choose to install enhancing hardware in their brains. One man rejects all this...Open Source is a paranoid, mind-bending scifi thriller for our time." - Amy Rogers,

TRACKED AND HACKED. A source found dead-his skull sawed open by NeuroChip vandals in a Dallas back alley. The sole witness? Reporter Ryker Morris, whose stubborn resistance to a different kind of chip-the globally mandated IDChip-cost him his job, apartment, and credibility. Ryker flees the gruesome scene, a young, homeless technophobe disappearing into a fast-paced city of augmented working stiffs and sexy chipped socialites.

But Ryker's reprieve doesn't last long. Under orders from a local hacker and tipped off by an invisible tracking device, the vandals kidnap Ryker's best friend, leaving only a blood-soaked wallet behind. Even worse, they inject Ryker's brain with a refurbished NeuroChip. Without money or resources, he must find his friend and deactivate the corrupt NeuroChip, before the twisted hacker who programmed it gains full control over Ryker's own thoughts.
By day, Anna L. Davis is a (mostly) mild-mannered editor for Henery Press. By night and weekend, she becomes a coffee-guzzling cyberpunk writer who feeds on biotech mayhem. Anna has a bachelor of science in biology from UT Dallas and experience in medical editing. She lives outside of Dallas with her husband, two children, and an array of pets including chickens, goats and a donkey, but no cyborgs.
