Danger Room Blog

I thought that my readers who are also technology geeks might  enjoy knowing about Wired Magazine's blog, Danger Room.  It pays to keep informed about practically everything these days.   

Here is the link.Danger Room.  Is has sort of dystopian ring, doesn't it?

 BTW,  if you're up for international intrigue and technological history, my novel, World of Mirrors is out.   It can be ordered from the publisher's web site in print or as an ebook.  Still waiting for Bowker to  register the ISBN.  Not everything happens quickly in e-publishing.  Here is the link to the novel, and you can find out whether it's your cuppa tea.  Link to World of Mirrors publisher

The story is set on an island off the Baltic coast in the former DDR, and the year is 1990, the “time of the turn.” The Berlin wall has crumbled, but Germany is not yet reunified.   Against the seductive decadence of an old resort with its classic sailboats, nude beaches and crumbling casinos, Zara Gray, a consultant to high tech firms, and T.K. Drummond, a man who finds people and fixes situations, must track down an American software thief before he can fence a stolen copy of his company’s bleeding-edge new software.
Zara narrates the story as she fights the fear that their mission is jinxed from the beginning.  Bad decisions and chilling discoveries threaten to sabotage the project.  The situation further unravels during a sailing weekend, and turns deadly at a Midsummer Festival.  Trapped in a matrix of betrayal, Zara and T.K. must rely on two unlikely people to help them escape the island and in a final, desperate gambit to save the software, Zara must perform her own dangerous treachery.    

Kinda like a caper with an international cast of miscreants.  :)
