Glass House 51 is the insanely amazing adventure—or misadventure—of a lifetime, of one Richard Clayborne, a hard-charging young marketing maverick at gigantic AlphaBanc’s San Francisco branch.
Hyper-ambitious Richard has been offered an intriguing assignment: Get online via NEXSX and make e-time with the lovely, brilliant (and doomed) Chicagoan Christin Darrow. All to set a trap for the reclusive—and very deadly—computer genius, Norman Dunne, aka the Gnome.
Why? Three lovely young women dead in the streets of Chicago. And the Gnome, a former AlphaBanc employee, is the main suspect. But there just might be another AlphaBanc agenda in the works. . . .
Little does clueless Richard know what is in store: a tangled, twisted—and very treacherous—journey through the AlphaBanc underground, but by the time he realizes it, he’s in too deep to get out.
From the author: For Glass House 51, I set out to write an updated recombinant version of 1984 and Brave New World. Well, I don't aim low. The result is a long look into a primordial dystopia, future present — what's happening now with a techno / human layer gone bad — or actually going bad, as the world slouches along to oblivion. This is where it all begins, ground zero, the beginning of the end — of privacy, freedom, dignity, perhaps civilization as we know it. The Dystopia Primeval.
