In 2022, graffiti has gone digital. ‘Tagraffiti’ is the new form of street art, made up of online tags posted onto internet placewalls across the city.

Nobody knows who Jay is as he rides through London, drive-by hacking into people’s wi-fi. He only has one night to create a piece of tag-fiction to rival ¢entø, the most famous tagraffiti artist of all time. And like ¢entø, Jay has to stay anonymous.

The clock is ticking. The police are in pursuit. If they find out what Jay’s real name is…

Tag. You’re it.

 

Tag is a 13,000 word story and is part of the Auto Series.

Tag was previously published in Off the KUF Volume 2, an anthology of short fiction from the Kindle Users Forum, edited by David Wailing.

Reviews

“As usual, Wailing uses his futuristic world to draw attention to things about the modern day that are either ridiculous or that have dangerous implications. I found it unsettling in parts, humorous in others.”

“Another great installment in the Auto series. There are several twists in this one, including one I never saw coming near the end. Can’t wait to read the next one!”
