When Stories Break, You Send in the Genrenauts!
The Genrenauts are a group of story experts who travel to parallel worlds. Each is the home of a narrative genre--Science Fiction or Romance, Fantasy or Western--populated by archetypal characters and constantly playing out familiar stories. Their mission is to find and fix broken stories. But if they fail, the ripples from the story worlds will cause havoc and devastation on their home world. In this short story, the group heads to the neon and chrome world of Cyberpunk to find a missing hacker.
A short story in the Genrenauts series (a "Stabby" Award Finalist for Best Serialized Fiction).
