Main Fiction: “Intellectual Property” by Michael R. Fletcher

Originally appeared in Interzone.

Michael R. Fletcher is a science fiction and fantasy author who lives with his wife and daughter in the endless soulless suburban sprawl north of Toronto, Canada. His hobbies include… uh… he doesn’t really have hobbies. He likes death metal, does that count?  His first novel, 88, a cyberpunk tale about harvesting children for their brains, was published by Five Rivers Publishing in 2013.

Mike’s second novel, Beyond Redemption, a work of dark fantasy and rampant delusion, was released by Harper Voyager in June of 2015. The next two Manifest Delusions novels have been written and are currently in various stages of editing. Mike is represented by Cameron McClure of the Donald Maass Literary Agency.
