We are thrilled to show off the cover art for the new science fiction novella MURDER IN THE GENERATIVE KITCHEN by Meg Pontecorvo. This futuristic courtroom drama follows a juror on "Vacation Jury Duty" at an Acapulco resort as he tries to catch the romantic attention of a fellow juror without breaking sequestration rules, while serving on a trial in which a woman is accused of using a high-tech kitchen to poison her husband.
MURDER IN THE GENERATIVE KITCHEN will be available in ebook and paperback September 27, 2016.
With the Vacation Jury Duty system, jurors can lounge on a comfortable beach while watching the trial via virtual reality. Julio is loving the beach, as well as the views of a curvy fellow juror with a rainbow-lacquered skin modification who seems to be the exact opposite of his recent ex-girlfriend back in Chicago. Because of jury sequestration rules, they can’t talk to each other at all, or else they’ll have to pay full price for this Acapulco vacation. Still, Julio is desperate to catch her attention. But while he struts and tries to catch her eye, he also becomes fascinated by the trial at hand.
