Libertas Per Scientiam

Just Another Day (Short Story)

My attempt at a cyberpunk short story.  I'm tempted to create a few more in an episodic fashion about all the same characters in a world where corporations rule, technology sets the pace, and justice sways with the accountant's ledger.  Then... there are those who come to the aid of victims of this world.

This also is an experiment in self-publishing.

Genetic Reject Employment Bureau

Concept

A dredged up concept from the pass.  The world was original cooked up for a web comic during the web-comic emergence of the late 90's.   In the future, humanity experiments with genetic engineering and the typically spread of successes and failures.  Things change when these created beings are given rights... include the rejects.  The trouble is that the rejects are hard to employ and often clog up many government systems.  So, Genetic Reject Employment Bureau were created to house and employ these rejects; if only to keep them off the streets.  Below are various documents and bits related to it condense from old notes and my brain with a few revisions and corrections.
