ATL: Stories from the Retrofuture is an online serial web novel by Thedude3445.  It’s a sci-fi/comedy/thriller/action/drama set in a world imagined by the 80s and 90s. Morgan Harding, twentysomething slacker unwittingly gifted with superhuman abilities, has to keep Atlanta safe from the technological threats that, uh, threaten it.

The series is divided into various independent story arcs, ranging in size from a full novel to just a couple chapters, and there’s only one constant: there will be a lot of robots. Start reading here.

ATL updates whenever new batches are ready— be there or be square, or some other undesirable shape if you happen to like squares!
