Jake Six hunts organics in the waning days of The Last War. But when an organic infects him with a new kind of virus, he finds himself cut off from his synthetic brothers-in-arms and their revered leader, an artificial intelligence known as Lassiter.

Now, hunted by his own kind, Jake must follow the rumors of a massive underground bunker in the Rocky Mountains, said to be the last great holdout of the organic race and possibly, the source of the virus.

But as Lassiter’s army closes in, and organics grow more daring in their attacks, it may already be too late to save synthetic-kind… and himself… from annihilation.

Set in the Vinestead Universe and brimming with twists and clever one-liners, Hybrid Mechanics is another irresistible mash-up of science, mystery, gunplay, and gratuitous nudity from Science Fiction author Daniel Verastiqui.

After reading all of my alpha reader feedback,
I began my read-through of the first draft.

"First off, man what a good ending."

"Hey Daniel, You suck."

"Airtight, shit happened each chapter,
and you didn’t waste any time."

"Sexualize Gabe more possibly but
not as important as Jake’s ass."

Decided on a signature font for Hybrid Mechanics: Josefin Sans.

Trust me, this was a very important part of the writing process.
