Product description

Review

"An impressive body of work that takes an unflinching and often humorous look at humanity's greatest challenges and foibles. Akers builds worlds with amazing prescience that are remarkably familiar to our up-to-the-minute sensibilities. You will be educated, you will laugh, and you will be enticed to think in a larger way about our world and the role of technology within it."

--Dr. James D. Neill, Astrophysicist
California Institute of Technology

Product Description

Summary

Seventeen prescient tales of the near future: from global chaos to our obsession with celebrities, from virtual reality to the final flooding of Calcutta, from genetic engineering to the future of the Internet. A truly perceptive mind sized it all up decades before most people realized what was going down.

About the Author

Brian Dana Akers grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan and spent his teenage years building telescopes, reading science fiction, and practicing Yoga. He started six years of undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of Michigan in 1975, with his senior year abroad in India. His studies included Sanskrit and Indian history.

Brian then left for the San Francisco Bay Area and worked as a typographer and network manager. In July of 1991—with sun, moon, and earth aligned in the Golfo de California—he met Loretta, moved to New York, and married her.
