 Cyber – Part 1

CYBER 1 ebook cover
This short story was my first fiction sale. It’s called “Cyber.”

Seamless data flow brings words and images together on a screen. Two beings inside the data stream. Lovers. But, what is real?

This is science-fiction/cyberpunk type stuff, with a space opera bent (cyberspace in this case). It’s a techno-relationship story.
