“Silence and Sword” by Royce Day (part 2 of 2)

The Voice of Dog

Nov 14 2022 • 41 mins

In the post-apocalyptic city of Ambara Down, Joe Wildmon is just your average leopard electronics tech, until he finds himself helping the wazagan Hamia and their adopted fox daughter Ali, on a quest to free her from the plotting of the insane AI, Pax Machina.

Today’s story is the second and final part of “Silence and Sword” by Royce Day, which was originally published in the shared world anthology The Reclamation Project: Year One, edited by John Robey, and available through Furplanet. When he's not defeating the plots of insane artificial intelligences, Royce is complicating the romantic lives of the Darktail family in his long running Red Vixen Adventures series, available through Amazon.com, and has had short stories published by Armoured Fox Press, and Thurston Howl Publications

Previously, Joe, a leopard electronics tech living in the post-apocalypse city of Ambara Down, was hired buy Hamia, a wazagan mercenary, and his adopted fox daughter Ali, to help remove a collar that prevents her from speaking, locked around her neck by the insane AI, Pax Machina.

As they approach the Pax Machina facility where Ali had once been held, Joe and Hamia must prepare to deal with Pax Machina's defenses, and with Ali's growing frustration and desperation.
