Where Memory Has Lease
Where Memory Has Lease extrapolates a future where a person’s life memory can be stored in DataJewels until downloaded into the mind of another human being. It is a future where the Old Earth Empire rules the galaxy and the Rigel Syndicate controls all trade. And it’s a future where a secret technology, capable of destroying worlds, has fallen into the mind of a data courier. Though both the Syndicate and the Empire apply nearly endless resources to find the data courier, small time Altarean free trader, Strand, and her mercenary Lancer, Rik, become obstacles and serious competitors to their efforts … because that’s what happens when you attach the memories of a dead sister to the biggest secret of all time.
