The ICAS Files

The ICAS Files are stories set in a new military science-ficiton universe I am developing.

It’s a universe at war, with technology-enhanced humans are in a fight for survival against an infestation of bio-enhanced machines. Each side being a dark reflection of the other.

Central to the conflict are the ICAS troopers, aka the Alliance Interservice Duty military. These soldiers are augmented with high-tech weaponry and special armored suits known as Interservice Combat Assault Suits. The capability of thus technology is barely explored in the first published short story, Cold Dead Fingers, and is likely to develop alongside the rest of this new universe as I get into more detailed storytelling.

In the meantime, enjoy!
