Open your eyes, my son, and behold the machinery of the world…

Armando Carrillo has always lived with the nagging feeling that the world wasn’t real, but he never expected to wake up naked in an abandoned underground bunker with a computer screen behind him flashing the words CLIENT DISCONNECTED.

After the discovery that his life in Austin, Texas was nothing more than a comp

Have you been begrudgingly perusing political news headlines, day after day, and think to yourself, “this can’t be real”? Hybrid Mechanics, Verastiqui’s 5th installment in the Vinestead Universe, answers back, “what if it’s not? What if this is all a simulation?”

I’ve been following Verastiqui’s work since Xronixle – his first – and I’ve had the pleasure of seeing his writing continuously improve, culminating into this fantastic mix of Cyberpunk Futurism and modern-day existential crises of the t

I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway, for which I am very grateful. The following is my unbiased review of it.

After winning this book, I had a few trepidations about it. I somehow missed that this is the fifth book in a series, a condition I try to avoid due to not knowing the backstorys. I needn't have worried, though. This book is a stand alone novel, as apparently are the other four in the series. Buy without fear, dear readers.

The premise of this book really appealed to me. I've thought f

This was a great read. There are several storylines that are advanced throughout and the way in which everything is brought to resolution was, for me, very satisfying. The book manages to stand on its own, meaning you don’t have to have read the earlier books to enjoy it; however, those who have read the others will have a different and perhaps richer appreciation for what the author has done here. If you’re a fan of sci/fi this is a great read. If you’re a fan of the author’s earlier work it’s ...more

Copy of my review posted on Amazon:
My new favorite book by Daniel Verastiqui. I was wondering since the cover blurb gives away some of what the story is about. But even though you think you know where it's going, there are some surprises. All in all, a fun story and well written. A lot of Austin, TX references, if you're into that.
