Island author’s latest is dark cyberpunk short

Bainbridge author Luciano Marano’s latest published work of short fiction is one of 27 new, original tales included in the recently released anthology “Crash Code,” a collection of cyberpunk horror stories edited by Q. Parker.

Cyberpunk is a subgenre of science fiction, most often depicting a dystopian futuristic setting that tends to focus on a “combination of low-life and high tech,” and featuring advanced technological and scientific achievements such as artificial intelligence and cybernetics juxtaposed with a degree of breakdown or radical change in the social order.

Seminal works include William Gibson’s “Neuromancer,” Bruce Sterling’s “Mirrorshades” anthology, several of Philip K. Dick’s novels and short stories, “The Matrix” and its sequels, and the 2018 Netflix series “Altered Carbon.”

Among the collection’s other contributors are Kristopher Triana, Aaron Thomas Milstead, K. Trap Jones, T. Fox Dunham, KJ Moore, and John McNee.

Marano’s “The Fate You Are” is the anthology’s concluding story.

He is a longtime Review staff writer/photographer, named 2018 Feature Writer of the Year by the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association, whose fiction has been featured in several anthologies, including “Year’s Best Hardcore Horror Vol. 3,” and on several podcasts.
