Skin 2.0: A Cyberpunk Science Fiction Short Story A post-apocalyptic/dystopian science fiction cyberpunk thriller.
For centuries, men, women, and even children, have filled narrow cubicles in skyscraping office buildings, rusty factory floors, and poorly lit illegal damp basements to slave for the survival of their families. Those jobs were low paid, grueling, and even deadly, but for some, it was the only way of life.
By the end of the 21st century, a new generation of workers took over those jobs. These workers never get tired. They never break down. They never dream.
At least, they aren't supposed to.
“SKIN 2.0” is a dark sci-fi thriller with a cyborg female protagonist. It explores the rat race of existence through the eyes of a cyborg who dares to dream of more than she is programmed to do.
