Not again. A man, as wide as he was tall, holding someone against the wall up ahead, a knife glinting in his hand. Alex skidded to a halt.
The man turned, his bald head covered in tattoovids that danced and strobed in the gloom. “Kid,” he said, his voice autotuned to a bass burr. “Get lost.”
The London of 2154 is a gritty place, but even in the darkest reaches of the Dimlands there are bright spots. As Alex makes his way towards one such spot, however, he quickly comes across the worst the district has to offer.
This year, Pocket Fiction will be host to the entire run of my novel Noctis Point. Each episode will be produced sequentially, taking me through to September. Coinciding with this, I will be releasing Noctis Point later in the year as a Kindle book.
Please, if you have a few minutes to spare, leave a review at the iTunes store! Every review helps! You can leave a review by viewing the podcast in iTunes itself, and clicking on Ratings and Reviews.
Even though I'm serialising Noctis Point, Pocket Fiction is always looking for submissions! If you're an author, or you know an author, and you have a piece of fiction you would like to hear in the weekly podcast, drop me a line!
