The Zone by Typist kid


A sci-fi story set in the 22nd century.

John has been dormant for nearly two years. He emerges again, but with a new alias. He enrolls himself into one of the largest schools in the world through a competition. But he doesn’t plan to stay for long, because of the event. He is only enrolled for a vacation of ‘normality’, since he has never had a normal childhood.

He makes friends with a group of teens who seem to engage in criminal activities for the rush. But they do not realize that Daniel, their soft hearted friend (John’s alias) is actually one of the powerful people in the world, The Architect, who was deemed dead.

But . . . There are tough descisions to make as the event nears, and many other problems to wrangle . . . .

Things get crazier in this already crazy world, and watch John come out at the top.

Note: The Zone contains some graphic violence and harsh language.

A serialized novel, updating twice weekly

No title

By JohnCalliganWrites, author of Winoc the Traveler

Jan 31, 2018: I really enjoy the setting presented in this book. After having read the first three chapters, I have a real feel for a world full of chaos and potential, order and danger. Technology run amok.

The story follows the adventures of a young cyborg who uses his powerful on-body-computers and technical skill to outfit himself with robotic armor and artificial implants more useful for building and creating than fighting.

Not to say he’s defenseless.

The story rushes a little, leaving some of the descriptions abstract. That’s okay for readers like me who are heavily into science fiction and are able to supply some of the details from the tropes we’re used too. There is also a little info-dumping, but the author uses very simple, direct language, so it’s a breeze to get through.

I’m a fan of pen and paper RPGs and reading his work has my mind spinning for stats and rules to bring it to the table.

Worth a look
