Thriller/Mystery

Metrofloat New York by William Quincy Belle

I had William yesterday, and here’s his other story. I don’t feel like this one is going to make me laugh, or even chuckle, but sure it’s interesting. I mean, look at that cover, and imagine living there!

The story is Metrofloat New York by William Quincy Belle, a A Post-apocalyptic Sci-Fi thriller.

Several hundred years in the future, Earth is a different planet. Antigravity has been invented and “flying” has given way to “floating”: giant platforms with cities remain above the growing surface temperatures as enclaves of the privileged. A global pandemic has wiped out 80% of those on the ground, and a virulent, flesh-eating disease, necrofasc, has left most with artificial body parts. Insects are the main food staple. A utopia for some, a dystopia for others.

Metrofloat New York, a futuristic city of thirty million, is run by an oligarchy of five rich and powerful people. An unknown assassin, working from within the system, attempts to seize control and declare himself dictator by methodically removing all rivals. Detective Matthew Heart of the Metropolitan Police must deal with his partner, a cyborg policewoman, his unofficial family, a transgender woman and her one-legged daughter, and a mysterious assailant bent on taking over the world by killing anyone who stands in his way.

About the Author

William Quincy Belle is just a guy. Nobody famous; nobody rich; just some guy who likes to periodically add his two cents worth with the hope, accounting for inflation, that $0.02 is not over evaluating his contribution. He claims that at the heart of the writing process is some sort of (psychotic) urge to put it down on paper and likes to recite the following, which so far he hasn’t been able to attribute to anyone: “A writer is an egomaniac with low self-esteem.” You will find Mr. Belle’s unbridled stream of consciousness floating around in cyberspace.

  1. While a drama, there is a humorous tone to the story with a discussion of issues pertinent to our current culture: income inequality, peer group acceptance and body image, and LGBTQ themes. After all, good SciFi is really about characters, not just space ships, ray guns, and alien monsters.

    Thanks for the shoutout.

    All the best to you in your world. 🙂
