Citizen Sandy is near-future fiction. In a tense world, President Trump having challenged China and lost an aircraft carrier, the existence of both intelligent human-other-primate hybrids and self aware artificial intelligence is revealed by a large military contractor. Sandy and his mates are some of these genetic creations preparing for war against Alphas, or ordinary humans.
