Broken Shield

by Ryan Garner

In the near future terrorism is rampant, uncontrollable civil uprisings are commonplace, and debt has virtually consumed all of the Western Democracies. In the face of an economic, political, and social catastrophe the likes of which the world has never before seen, a young, attractive, and charismatic Senator named Jamal Jordan is elected president of the United States. Driven to success on a wave of assurances to solve the problems of the country and with his party in control of both houses of Congress, President Jordan is extended virtually limitless power. Unfortunately, after nearly two years in office it had become apparent that his economic, political, and social policies had failed miserably. As midterm elections rapidly approached a strong likelihood that his party would lose control of Congress became apparent. These events caused President Jordan to use the continuing economic and social crisis as justification to pass the “National Preservation Act.”

The “National Preservation Act” suspended the United States Constitution, dissolved congress, halted general elections, and closed all federal courts including the Supreme Court for a set period of ten years. All executive, legislative, and judicial functions are entrusted to a small executive council handpicked and headed by President Jordan himself.

The Statute also helps create the National Governing Police. Bestowed with virtually limitless state and federal powers and the authority to circumvent any state constitutional law whenever the “need” to serve “national interest” is presented, the NGP has become an absolute force spreading rapidly through the land.

In the midst of this social and governmental turmoil John Lawrence, an officer with the Wilmington Police Department is forced to choose between his sworn duty to protect and serve, a police department paralyzed by fear of both federal authority and civil liability, a society with misguided hatred for its protectors, and a seemingly almighty and overreaching government hell bent on destroying the constitution and country he promised to safeguard. After discovering a dark secret about the woman he loves and confronting a terrorist threat greater than any the country has previously faced; John must make decisions that will not only affect him and those he cares about, but may very well change the face of the nation.

Hackers

by M A Smith

‘It went wrong. We all knew the theory of veins and wire and the connective tissues that linked tech to flesh; but when it came right down to it, none of us knew anything about real-world torn, soft pulsing muscle or the grey slide of that stuff just under the top layer of skin. We got the arm attached, but Margey died that night.’

This novelette is part 1 of the Hackers Collection.
