Saul Williams conceived MartyrLoserKing's title character, a cyber hacker living in the East African country of Burundi who builds a Frankenstein's Monster-like super-computer from the parts of abandoned desktops, teaches himself how to code and develops an online cult following. He's in love with a transgender woman named Neptune Frost and hosts a cryptic and anarchist podcast, through which his eventual hacks into Google and the Pentagon turn him into Public Enemy No. 1, a kind of militant Edward Snowden. Find here the seeds through which MartyrLoserKing is set to bloom.
