The Disconnected

The Open Communications Act made private conversation a thing of the past.

When anyone can tune in and listen to your phone’s audiovisual feed at will, everybody’s safety becomes mutually assured through the medium of two-way, open-access chatter worldwide. That is, of course, unless you’re one of the Disconnected. In this cautionary dystopia from David Steffen, going undetected by the eyes and ears of the grid, or even being “muted” as a form of severe punishment, is tantamount to death.

David Steffen lives in Minnesota with his lovely wife and two crazy dogs. He works as a software engineer, writing video processing algorithms for traffic cameras. No, not the kind that give you tickets. The good kind. Yes, there is a good kind. He writes speculative fiction (mostly contemporary fantasy) and is an all-around media enthusiast, particularly of movies and video games.

Digital Science Fiction

A new age of science fiction is here. Digital Science Fiction curates masterful tales from a diverse array of authors—award winners, up-and-comers, and established veterans of the craft. If it’s got our name on it, you know it’s going to be great.

Our seal of approval is a one-hundred-percent guarantee of reader satisfaction. We’re dedicated to bringing you stories, characters, and ideas you’ll love. We have something for everyone: space opera, cyberpunk, hard science fiction, slipstream, dystopia, you name it. Newcomers and connoisseurs of speculative fiction alike will discover exciting new worlds within our pages. One of our favorite things about reading is discovering fresh talent, and we aim to share that joy with all of you. Step inside and stay awhile.

As lifelong admirers of venerable publications like Asimov’s, Analog, and The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Digital Science Fiction brings a noble tradition of wonder into the new age. Print magazines might be waning, replaced with tablets and the holographic entertainment devices of tomorrow, but we will never lose the fantastic stories that continue to excite our imaginations. We must carry them with us through the ages—reading and writing them, sharing and discussing them, loving them. Strap yourself in and prepare for takeoff.

This is gripping science fiction at its finest. This is Digital Science Fiction.
