Synopsis

Is it worth losing everything you are to get revenge for the ones you love?

Mox has a good gig going as a guard on Luna, the Moon's main metropolis. He's got respect, he's got a date on the calendar, heck, he's even got a nice red cape to wear.

Then a common criminal proves to be nothing but, and suddenly Mox is tossed into disaster. On the brink of despair, Mox must make a choice that will forever change his future.

The Metal Man is a short story prequel set in the Wild Nines universe.
