Fantasy Humor Satire urban fantasy

Marcy's neighbor asks her to be her "sassy best friend." Jasmine has been reading urban fantasy for her thesis and thinks she's a paranormal investigator. At first, Marcy humors her because it beats what's on TV, but then they meet a were-beaver, battle some drones (or fairies?), and Marcy starts to worry about "aiding and abetting." Can this modern Sancho save the town and her Quixote from each other? Note: This novel is a complete draft, but I'm revising chapters before posting them.

In the future, humans commemorate the 100-year anniversary of Singularity Day, the point at which technology accelerated beyond our control and made mortality and global warming quaint relics of the past. But some historians question whether we truly understood what we were giving up when we ceded our fate to faceless algorithms.

Satire Science Fiction starship
