therighside.pngQuality sci-fi is rarely about huge battles and heroic pilots. It's about strange yet sensible societies. Well-written characters and age old questions examined through the prism of a distant future. Quality sci-fi is a bit like twine-powered interactive fiction The Right Side of Town by Kitty Horrowshow and Javy Gwaltney. An excellently written, grim and intriguingly illustrated choose-your-own-adventure where choices matter and the remnants of humanity struggle to preserve their humanity; or, traditionally, get richer in expense of the many. Possibly even murder each other in particularly nasty ways or show off their xenophobia by hunting androids.

You can grab the (lovely) The Right Side of Town for $3.50 over at complete with its soundtrack, a collection of poems and a selection of artwork.
