dc.description.abstract The aim of this thesis is to demonstrate the viability of writing to an audience both literary and involved in the genre fiction market, and to showcase this in selections of a novel in sequence. The novel in question is a fictive narrative. The thesis aims to integrate the elements of speculative genre fiction with those of literary fiction and to create a hybrid of the two styles as a result. The manuscript serves as a genre piece, specifically science fiction, with an emphasis on portrayal of characters in a literary manner. Action and internalization of external conflict are both utilized to create a duality of heightened tension, both from a literal and figurative standpoint. Character interaction and narration serve as the primary means of plot progression in lieu of authorial narration. The thesis is divided into two halves, each alternating with character viewpoints: one half involves the business and romantic dealings of the primary protagonist, while the second half concerns itself with corporate and military espionage on the part of multiple antagonists. The two halves periodically intertwine with emphasis on revealing successive character interaction, with an emphasis on integrating the various cast members into a cohesive related whole. en_US
