About this project

If you've read ...in Spaaace!, even just the first part, you're familiar with the setting for "Playborg Photographer." It's a future where death is temporary, where self-aware cell phones develop gambling problems and sass their owners, where antibuddhists strive for the perfect conflict and politicians wrestle with taking contributions from People For the Eating of People.

Into this morass of technological weirdness and self-indulgence stumbles Xotappath T'loggia, the sole survivor of a mighty warrior race currently working as a glamor photographer for Playborg magazine. Awakening one day to discover his memories of the last week have been stolen, he sets out in pursuit of the truth (and a ghost-written byline). Learning the horrible secret behind his amnesia takes him to the heart of political ugliness and dangerous self-awareness. Also, there are many jokes.

If this project raises $450, I'll release it as a nicely formatted PDF file under a Creative Commons license. As usual, all donors get a podcast of me reading the story. In this case, a recording laden with all the sound effects I can figure out for the voices of manifold aliens.
