Spiral Architect is a new Starbreaker novel, serialized online.
When attempts by a biotech startup to claim artificial humanoids as corporate property draw the Phoenix Society’s attention, they put Morgan Cooper on the case even though he’s supposed to be on vacation. That alone would make it personal, but Morgan himself is a potential target. When the law is no shield, only the sword remains.

I’m using “Spiral Architect” as a working title until I come up with something better. The lyrics to the Black Sabbath song aren’t a perfect fit, but the imagery it provokes suits me.
I’m still tempted to use “Proscribed Construct” instead, because to one faction in the setting einherjar like Morgan Cooper and the lifthrasir from which the einherjar were developed are forbidden tech to be destroyed on sight.
