Annabel Scheme and the Adventure of the New Golden Gate

This is a detective story about all the possible versions of a place. It features a bustling city built on a filled-in San Francisco Bay, a pop star tech genius named Quintessandra, and internet teeth.

The web edition

This story was initially published as a daily serial in two Bay Area newspapers, the Mercury News and East Bay Times, in the summer of 2020.
