The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

The Reinvented Detective
Arc Manor Books




Description
As we move forward into the age of information, what happens to our ideas of detection and crime? How do you handle it when your smart car blackmails you or you need to murder the downloaded personality of your enemy? What acts to enforce society's norms and catch those violating them in the future? Will our definitions of crime — or punishment — change, and what new forms of either might appear?

?

Among the stories we hope to see:

Updated tropes like but not limited to the hardboiled detective, the police procedural, or the locked room mystery.

Kidnapped AIs, stolen memories and identities, virtual crimes vs physical ones.

What constitutes murder when the victim's got a backup? What if you accidentally unplug someone's server?

Stories that experiment, astonish, and entertain.
