Dust Cover
Bronson Caan works for his parents in the family business. Born in 2092 to Cube Combat Promotions, Bronson is literally the Adam of his kind, the first purpose-born Cube Fighter. Patterned after two action movie actors of the Late Pre-World Order Age, Bronson Caan is the prototype combat celebrity—a striving, bleeding and conquering masculine fetish icon conceived and promoted for the diversion of a post-masculine world. Cube is the story of his redaction.

Note to the Reader
Bronson Caan, as a child and employee of Cube Combat Promotions and an actionist, largely alienated from none-CCP persons, lived a life suffused in shorthand jargon. The transcript of his redaction scan has, as much as possible, been translated using standard English. However, unique terminology concerning the life of a CCP fighter is retained for context, with footnotes for clarification at the bottom of the first page in which such terms appear, with all notes gathered in the glossary for ease of reading.
It is hoped that Bronson’s redaction transcript will enhance the accessibility of Shockwear Combatant Generation Technology for use in security, law enforcement, executive protection and military applications.
