Spanner Chapter 24: Every Silver Lining Has a Cloud

Book 1/Chapter 23

Chaos Angel Spanner — Book 2: Rage of the Prophets
Chapter 24: Every Silver Lining Has a Cloud

The Fearsome Foursome lick their wounds and replace their dead members. Team Spanner regroup and plan their next set of moves. The Cascadian strikers go back to work, but with a warning. CPMC is forced to hand management of Seattle over to a consortium of local employers while taking over its school system from the bankrupt SPEC. The Becket brothers and COPCO’s Brendan Sparks announce their intention to interfere with everything, while the Beckets’ wayward niece Ariel Shield interferes with them. Oliver Thorwald says goodbye to Leila, even as Liz McPhail barges her way into Shira’s life. Charmian and Debbie plot to take Shira for themselves, against each other, Jennifer, and Leila. And Dr. Henry Becket, the Cold War lion from MKULTRA, begins his rise to supreme power in his attempt to put an end to the future and singlehandedly save the collapsing American Empire...

Meanwhile, the Author departs from his usual daily schedule so he can win his sixth consecutive NaNoWriMo, while drawing upon the fragmentary Book 2 manuscript from NaNo ’10 and various scenarios from 15 years of Project Notebooks. This chapter debuts the Cybernauts and their virtual reality. Soon we will meet the Dream Travellers, the TV Heads, the League of Chaos, and, last but not least, the lords of the Fashion-Industrial Complex — the grotesque Molotov Twins — in their home arcology, Pretty City.

At last, Spanner Book 2 begins!
