The Kill
by J. A. Medford

Consciousness is an aberration in the Cosmos and must be eradicated. So says the Inner, a bodyless visitor to the Milky Way Galaxy. In an effort to destroy consciousness, he sets up the environment to play his game, The Kill. If he can get two gamers, one from Earth and one from Genesis, to enter the electromagnetic eye on Genesis, the magnetosphere which protects Earth from charged cosmic particles will be destroyed. His gamers, Lodgemen and Sacred Sisters ritualize their avatars and it’s game on. But the gamers, Luther Keyes and Sek, the Beast of Genesis wound each other, exchange blood, and break the rules of The Kill. As the controller searches for consciousness while struggling to retain control of his game, Luther, a former playboy,now in the throes of his first love, realizes that whether he wins or loses The Kill, the outcome will mean Earth’s demise. This science fiction/fantasy/romance follows the Inner on his relentless search for consciousness, and Luther Keyes, as he finds true love and realizes he may have to lose it to save us all.
