In March we’re launching EXOGENE (US | UK| AZ) the new book in T.C. McCarthy’s thrilling Subterrene War series. To introduce readers to the world, T.C. scripted a video short story featuring in-world interviews from the front-lines. Visit www.subterrenewar.com to view the clips.
About the Videos:
The Subterrene War is a war fought in the future, in central Asia, between the U.S. and Russia over mineral rights for some very rare earth metals that are crucial to the building of high-powered technology.
We have a new weapon in this war, often fought underground and in mines (hence the name): germline units. American citizens know very little about these weapons–only that they are being used. The government assures us they are not “people.” But germline units have all the appearances of young girls, and are raised into their teens in vats, then sent forth onto the battlefield with preprogrammed notions of death and honor.
In the Subterrene War Clips, a small documentary crew was able to gain access to individual interviews to the rear-area. The government subsequently heavily censored their work, and little of it was seen; until now.
A small group of activists were able to recover four clips from these interviews, and they reveal some startling truths about the state of the War.

“… a stark and wrenching sequel to Germline… the conclusion is simultaneously heartbreaking and triumphant, and utterly appropriate for the brutal, bloody, and magnificent story.”
