The Synth Oppression is an online sci-fi, mystery novella in 25 parts, found at thesynthoppression.wordpress.com.
The Synth Oppression is a science-fiction mystery novel that has been serialized into 25 parts. One part will be published every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until May 30, 2012.
The story follows the crew of the Scrubber a natural gas mining and smuggling ship during a galaxy-wide Beryllium Prohibition. But when one of their crew members is murdered, dark secrets from everyone’s past emerge, and the loyalty of this misfit band of outlaws is questioned. As the crew struggles to fulfill the largest order of Beryllium ever recorded, on one of the most dangerous planets in the galaxy, does the murderer start striking again or are a series of unfortunate accidents purely coincidental? Personal identity also takes a close examination as prejudice against synthetically modified humans (synths) divides the crew even further.
The series will be published online (thesynthoppression.wordpress.com) for free but only with enough funding to keep the website going. In addition, funding will help to produce the bonus content, Rea's Journal: Life as a Synth, every Saturday. Even better, if this series is succesful, another one is sure to follow!
