About the Story

The Fracture of 2018 ended the United States as we know it. The fear, the violence, the bombs...where did it all orginate? And can the box of destruction be closed once it's been laid open?

The Pyxis Memo is a short story in hypertext form, created as the second in a series of experiments into commercial publishing options for hyperfiction.

The Questions It Raises Will Linger Long After You've Finished Reading
This is a truly challenging and thought-provoking read -- not to say that it's difficult to read, because it isn't at all, but it forces the reader to confront their own knee-jerk responses and question their application of critical thinking skills to the media that's become ubiquitous in our lives. The story emerges through bits and pieces of different accounts, all written in a pitch-perfect realistic style that adds to the disquieting sense that the story is taking place just outside your door; or if it isn't yet, then it's all too possible that it might. A cross between true crime, classic mystery, anthropology, and satire, the Pyxis Memo is a memorable read that will leave you disquieted and deeply thoughtful.
