2085. Dr. Karnak & Baiko's beloved android Lieben is in danger of becoming mother of the Conglomerate's artificial slave race. With the Chairman's assassin Tara's sights on them, Baiko steals the secret to Lieben's artificial intelligence and runs to the Idless, anti-label anarchists, who believe Lieben is the key to free the world from corporate control. Will Baiko get to Lieben in time, or will Tara?

2155. Accidentally awakened gene-spliced bio-machine Aderastos wades to shore in Ucluelet, BC to the hum of the Mater Machine Lieben's Hymn Electric. Harmless Lt. Max Allard is tasked to drag him back to the Ithavoll, before Lieben claims 'it' for her own, and Aderastos' fellow Assets are destroyed.

AI meets gene-splicers, when the Idless & the Conglom fight to define artificially intelligent android Lieben and thus, the world. Seven decades later, Aderastos sets the human race against its' next stage in evolution, if he can survive long enough to rescue his fellows. Will Lieben help, or hinder?

Sapha is like a young Wolfgang Pauli, in every laboratory he went, there was a little explosion.I was born in Vancouver, BC in the 80's. Teethed on images of the Berlin Wall falling down. The product of Vancouver's multiculturalism, I steeped in divergent cultures, religious experiences and gender roles, until battling with traditional opinions became a daily war. On hiatus from the written word, I volunteered in Ghana, West Africa for a medical charity, and returned to Canada with an international perspective on gender, and storytelling. In 2014, my poetry collection Usurper Kings (Vraeyda Literary) hit the shelves with a Bang. My novella Son of Abel debuted in MacroMicroCosm Literary & Art Journal, and was published unabridged in 2017. I live in BC with my spouse, and speak on gender roles, cyberpunk, martial arts, comparative mythology & religion, when the #hallowesfam isn't chatting it up on twitch while we stream more RPG's.

Reviews for Neon Lieben

Sapha will rip your heart out, then give you chest compressions and chocolates. What she manages to do is tiptoe you on that line of emotional, gut wrenching, scenes that can bring you to the brink of hysteria. And with a sentence from a character she offers that breath of humour that pulls you back from the brink. Then dropkicks you over the ledge when you thought you were safe. An insane, diabolical, kickass rollercoaster. RL Arenz III, Author of Aegis
