Crime Tech is a collection of New York Times Bestselling author Michael A. Stackpole’s short stories which weave together technology and crime, often in unconventional ways. The stories in the collection are:
Kid Binary and the Two-Bit Gang: A tale of highwaymen plying their trade in the virtual worlds of the information superhighway.
It’s The Thought That Counts: A previously uncollected, tongue-in-cheek story about a telepath who’s a mediocre detective trying to solve a murder involving a woman who proves quite a distraction.
A Real Christmas: A noir tale for the holidays in which a depressed private eye postpones suicide for one last case for the Man of the North Pole himself.
Intelligent Design: A quick tale that lets us know what our dogs actually think of us and why.
Tip-off: It’s the NBA playoffs and a white supremist gang has let the star of the Phoenix Suns know they’ve bet a lot of money on him to win. He talks their enemy, Killian Sloan, into dealing with them as a favor for a friend, in a story of double and triple crosses where the outcome is anything but a slam dunk.
These stories, some of which have not been offered in digital form before, would cost $10 if sold separately, but collected here are selling for $2.99.
Bonus: The author had added an essay talking about each of the stories, their origins and inspirations, and plans for these characters in the future.
Five different stories, a sampler to introduce you to Michael A. Stackpole’s imagination and legion of characters.
