At its heart, a media-maven who plays the cultural libido of a city-state desperate for stimulus. A man, a woman, the yakuza, and zombie sex! Originally a Twitter novel.

Made in DNA is the pseudonym of an American author, living in Japan. He describes his special brand of fiction as sex-punk/sex-fi. After reading a short teaser from one of his latest works, I jumped at the chance to read the erotic, cyberpunk novella, Media Whores.

Media Whores takes place in New Tokioh, a techno-punk’s dystopia lurking beneath the radiation contaminated mess that was once Nippon. The unapologetically depraved sex-idol, Kurarua is the product of an absurd, sensation seeking socie

Made in DNA is like a combination between William Gibson and Simon Logan.

Media Whores is a twitter novel which takes place in a futuristic sex fused New Tokioh.

It's full of sex and ultraviolence and zombies all filmed behind an gritty industrial backdrop.

Highly recommended.

Some were proclaiming cyberpunk's demise before it ever got started. Well you can't put a nail in this coffin just yet, the damn thing just won't stop moving, it won't stop evolving.

Media Whores is a 21st century interpretation of a 20th Century genre that explored a future we are living right now. Where Max Headroom promised us blipverts -- commercials condensed to 3 seconds the real 21st century gave us microblogging, a capsule of thought in 140 characters or less. Made In DNA gives us a story

Media Whores – a tale of pr0n and zombies in a post-post apocalyptic Japan.

Writing for the Twitter audience, each sentence delivers a vivid scene.
Very vivid usually. Often combining sex, gore, horror and scifi elements in one or two sentences. Just the way to make an impact in 140 characters or less.

Racey – and not for the faint of heart or easily offended.

Keep those mass-distractions coming man!

Tweet me some cash so I can buy some sex insurance and mentally pop one of those char-browns in my mouth before the zombies chow down on my flesh. This story reads like a poetry slam entry at the annual Porn Convention in Vegas. Riotously entertaining for navies of semen and Genital Generals alike. I'll be quoting this story for weeks, and you should, too.

Definitely worth the money spent, and worth more than the 99 cents. Brent always knows how to work up a bizarre story, and he always delivers :)

this was originally a twitter fiction and I really wish I could have known and followed it while it happen but I tend to always be late on those kind of events. buying Media Whores had to be the next best thing.. and it was!
