It should have just been a quick, albeit deceptive, dig for an alien AI braincore on the planet of Shake Hands, a frontier world eschewing high tech and outsiders... Then someone tried to kill Pree and her crew.

"Screaming Metal" is a Twitter novella (31,000 words) written in microfiction format (25 words or less per "paragraph") partially posted on Twitter in 2015 and Vocal in 2017-2018.

Inspired by works like Makoto Kobayashi's Dragon's Heaven, Fred Saberhagen's Berserker series, and the wildly imaginative adult-level reader (but not adult content) stories within Heavy Metal Magazine among others. At its core, "Screaming Metal" is action adventure sci-fi set on a distant planet in the far future, featuring sentient AI mecha of a mysterious alien origin.

The novella is a complete story; there are no subsequent volumes to purchase.

PDF, mobi, and epub available.

Review from Itchio: In a similar vein as other space-faring small crew scavenger/smuggler/treasure hunter tales, with the addition of advanced alien technology (mech-warrior type A.I. Units called “Metals”). Just reading the first half of the free preview I could tell this was something I'd be interested in.

The writing style is very poetic/romantic, but also very fast paced because of the mini-paragraph style. I wasn't sure if I would like the short paragraph style at first, but it adds to both the speed and intensity of the story.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
