Stochasticity: A METAtropolis Story | Tobias S. Buckell

Stochasticity

Stochasticity

 

Reg Stratton is a bouncer eking a life out in the decaying wilds just outside a dystopian post-oil Detroit – a city in collapse. But when he gets sucked into making a little money on the side by tasking out his time via an anonymous app, he finds himself tangled up with ecoterrorists who have a creative and fast-moving plan. Reg ends up in the middle of a riot that could change his life, the city, maybe even the world… as long as he keeps cool and makes the right choice. It’s a fun adventure that takes an unexpectedly hopeful turn.

This novella was originally a part of the award nominated Metatropolis series, edited by John Scalzi and Jay Lake.
