Overview

What if 'Think Differently' was more than a campaign slogan? What if it was part of a mind control network geared towards advanced sciences, creating a vibrant, creative and competitive workforce? This is the world of Glass Shore, a dynamic existence featuring fierce vehicles, cruel weapons and serious body augmentation.

Manhattan, 2076. The fabled city of gold realised; a city of dazzling buildings and beautiful people; a city celebrated for converting an obsolete subway system into an adult playground. Manhattanite Nikki's life changes forever when she finds the files labelled 'Project Blue Book appendix 63-A'. The report contains a disc related to the Glass Shore, the horrendous nuclear event at Puget Sound in 2062. Disclosure of these files is not an option, so powerful people want Nikki dead. To protect her Nikki hires Apollo, her long-time friend and lover, who is magnificent at his job. He is also a clothes whore with an honest enthusiasm for life.
Nikki and Apollo are the hottest couple in Manhattan. Betrayed by friends at every turn, set upon by bounty hunters and other elements of security, law enforcement and civil protection, they utilise the best hotels, the sexy Underground and the glorious city of Manhattan as their shield.

About the Author

Stefan Jackson was born in North Carolina beside the calm eddies of the Trent and Neuse rivers, but spent the latter part of his childhood in southern California. In 1994 he moved to Brooklyn looking for a change, drawn to the energetic confluence of the Hudson and East rivers of the Big Bright City. There he met a lovely woman who became his wife, and they have an enchanting daughter. And a cat.
He now lives in Queens, where he writes stories, plays drums, coaches pee-wee girl’s basketball, works the cubicle life, cooks breakfast, rides the F line, laughs and rests his head in the land of jazz.
Stefan says “Cheers to the first fifty years. Hoping the next fifty are just as kind.”

I cannot say enough good things about this book. The author created a vivid future world that's so rich with detail you might believe he stepped back in time to write it. The technology described within sits cleverly outside the realm of what's currently possible. The captivating story was filled with action, global politics, and culture and surprisingly, life itself and what motivates us to make the choices we make. I enjoyed it from the very first chapter and I highly recommend this to anyone who likes their science fiction served up with a lot more than ray guns and shiny suits.

Stefan Jackson's novel, GLASS SHORE, is set in the not so distant future. It is an homage to Blade Runner, Dark Angel, Robocop, and Terminator; but he makes that not so distant future his own. The characters are compelling and the story unfolds a mystery that isboth exciting and disturbing. A must read.
