About The Book

The short stories that make up the cyberpunk anthology grydscaen: tribute focus on the hackers in the series. Intrusion, infiltration, government overreach, selling data, smuggling psi inducer drugs and social engineering – it is all covered.

When street teen hacker, Faid, is solicited by George Shimazuri, the rich and powerful corporate board member of the SenseNet, his life drastically changes. Becoming George’s host, Faid gains access to the halls of power in the City forming the Packrat hackers on a mission to destroy the government. He recruits Acolyte from the Terror Hack founding the hacker factions and starts the hacker revolution. When Raven, a hacker known for getting away clean, is ambushed on a job with Faid, the government insists on capturing him forcing him to work with them against the Packrats. With the factions, we meet homeless hacker, Rom harbouring a secret, but he just might be the most elite hacker the Packrats have. Take a ride in the dark and gritty, tech noir future of grydscaen: tribute with high-stakes intrigue, fast-paced action, and technology – where the hackers rule. Whose side are you on?
