What Is A Serial Story?

Sequential Installments Of A Much Larger Story

The city of Dust is a massive place with many heroes and villains waiting to have their stories told. This couldn't be accomplished in one book. Each episode is an encapsulated storyline having to do with an overall arc for the season. You can read stories out of order, although you may run into characters who have already had story progression within another episode. Each story is meant to be a short, exciting glimpse into the world of Dust.

I grew up reading horror, consuming books by Dean Koontz and John Saul. Cerebral horror has always been my preferred subgenre. Cyberpunk themes have intrigued me throughout the years, ever since I first saw Blade Runner and The Running Man. Cyberpunk 2077 comes out 11/19/20! Will absolutely be immersing myself in that world.

"Strange Tales From The City of Dust" is my cyberpunk look at future Pittsburgh. It involves themes of LGBTQ relationships, medical monstrosities, occultism, mental health, artificial intelligence, and more.

"Candid Taboo" are my interviews on Medium with real individuals about their personal interests. From authors and their work to strange sexual desires, I get candid with intriguing people about their lives.

"Necropolis" is a 4 part series of atmospheric literature on Medium based on the artwork of Zdzisław beksiński and the atmospheric music of both Cryo Chamber and Iron Cthulhu Apocalypse.
