Description

Neuromancer meetsStar Trek inGamechanger, a fantastic new book from award-winning author L. X. Beckett.
First there was the Setback.
Then came the Clawback.
Now we thrive.
Rubi Whiting is a member of the Bounceback Generation. The first to be raised free of the troubles of the late twenty-first century. Now she works as a public defender to help troubled individuals with anti-social behavior. That’s how she met Luciano Pox.
Luce is a firebrand and has made a name for himself as a naysayer. But there’s more to him than being a lightning rod for controversy. Rubi has to find out why the governments of the world want to bring Luce into custody, and why Luce is hell bent on stopping the recovery of the planet.

Their first novella, "Freezing Rain, a Chance of Falling," and takes place in the same universe asGamechanger. Lex identifies as feminist, lesbian, genderqueer, married, and Slytherin, and can be found on Twitter or at a writing advice blog, the Lexicon.

Editorial Review

“Packed with cool ideas, psychological intrigue, political conspiracy, and hard-won hope.” —Annalee Newitz
"This delightful pinball machine of a book recalls the whiz-bang joy and gleeful innovation of Neal Stephenson’sSnow Crash.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"A visionary glimpse into the future" —Kirkus Reviews
"A thought-provoking and, at times, frightening peek into possibilities of the future." —Booklist
"Readers will delight in the nonbinary characters, LBGTQ relationships and identities, and the land acknowledgment statement at the end of the book. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal, Starred Review
