What would you write as
Crashing Heaven’s Accountant of the future Jack Forster and his sidekick Hugo Fist, a military AI that manifests as a virtual ventriloquist’s dummy, are being persecuted by the Pantheon, a group of sentient corporations that are worshipped as gods. They’ve got to work out why and do something about it.
How did you go about building the world of
A lot of Crashing Heaven comes from looking around at the world we live in now. Jack Forster’s a heavily abused corporate drone – most of us have either been one or know one. And modern technology is a lot like a ventriloquist’s dummy. Neither can exist without us, but both very easily take on disturbing lives of their own if we let them. There’s a lot of film noir in there, too – The Third Man’s moody, broken atmosphere was particularly important.
