I know, it's been forever since I wrote any comments. Forgive me. My new company Socialtype has me held hostage : ). We just moved onto The Jim Henson Lot amidst the muppets and we have commandeered a barn that was built by Charlie Chaplin!! If you visit LA you must come for a visit. You can put your hand up a muppet's bum!

Hey SG SciFi lover,

Chapter Eleven, Part Three of The Killswitch Review is now up on Suicide Girls and this chapter takes place during my re-envisioning of the superbowl in the year 2156, wherein players are so genetically enhanced that it has necessitated the field being doubled in size. The clock is ticking and Agent Haggerty, his beautiful android assistant, Elsa, and Regina, the pro life activist have only minutes to stop the ripple that could cause a wave of copycat teen suicides that Gandhi has predicted will happen

You can either read it on the SG site

The Killswitch Review, is a futuristic murder mystery with killer sociopolitical commentary (and some of the best sex scenes weve ever read!). Written by bestselling sci-fi author Steven-Elliot Altman (with Diane DeKelb-Rittenhouse), it offers a terrifying postmodern vision in the tradition ofBlade Runner and Brave New World

By the year 2156, stem cell therapy has triumphed over aging and disease, extending the human lifespan indefinitely. But only for those who have achieved Conscientious Citizen Status. To combat overpopulation, the U.S. has sealed its borders, instituted compulsory contraception and a strict one child per couple policy for those who are permitted to breed, and made technology-assisted suicide readily available. But in a world where the old can remain vital forever, Americas youth have little hope of prosperity.

Jason Haggerty is an investigator for Black Buttons Inc, the government agency responsible for dispensing personal handheld Kevorkian devices, which afford the only legal form of suicide. An armed Killswitch monitors and records a citizens final moments up to the point where they press a button and peacefully die. Post-press review agents button collectors are dispatched to review and judge these final recordings to rule out foul play.

When three teens stage an illegal public suicide, Haggerty suspects their deaths may have been murders. Now his race is on to uncover proof and prevent a nationwide epidemic of copycat suicides. Trouble is, for the first time in history, an entire generation might just decide theyre better off dead.

Thank you SG, especially Nicole and Sam and Jessica! Now and forever theres a little SG in me.

Your humble narrator,
Steven

Hi, I'm Steve, or Steven, or Steven-Elliot if I'm being shouted at by a family member. I'm a huge fan of SG and once upon a time I even called into the radio show and won tickets to an SG show here in Hollyweird.

Then fate handed me the pleasure of meeting the hosts last year, and I was invited to be...

Fiction Friday: The Killswitch Review on SG Blog

Here is a bit of dialogue from this weeks installment. In the future, the kids refer to themselves as Generation Zero, because they realize theyll be the first generation that will not be allowed to reproduce themselves one for one due to mandatory birth restrictions and financial pressures. So they begin to brand themselves with branding irons for solidarity against a society that suppresses them a helluva lot worse than ours ever could. Our ingnue character, Regina, has an interesting explanation for it, that I drew from a rationale I heard once for why some teenagers cut themselves

Why would they brand themselves? he finally asked.

Regina was thoughtful. Theyre fucked, and they know theyre fucked, she began. The odds are against them, for jobs, children, even happiness. That has a sort of numbing effect, ya know?
Haggerty did know.

And when youre numb to the world, to yourself, and youre not feeling anything feeling nothing at all you go to extremes. You hurt yourself until the pain rushes in and tells you youre alive. Her tone turned flippant. Besides, its the latest in celebrity fashion. No more dangerous than getting pierced or tattooed.

Shine on and have a great weekend!
