9780979743559: Nu Logic: Rise of the Neos

NU LOGIC is the sequel to GLIDE and is Book 2 in the Glide Trilogy, which is set alternately in a future world shaped by the miraculous inventions of Dr. Magigate, and the preceding dystopian era dominated by the Prophet and her Academy. In NU LOGIC, Rise of the Neos, accomplished virologist, Dr. Janot (whose specialty is crossover pathogens that make the leap between organics, inorganics, hardware, and software), threatens the promising Glide era with his wildly popular augmented reality gaming world—Neology. Only the genius inventor, Captain Magigate, can stop him, but Magigate is lost in the past with his erstwhile lover and foe, the Prophet. Teenage artist Maddy’s cryptic paintings hold the key to reaching the Captain, but will she discover their secret in time to stop Dr. Janot, whose Connected Reality vision threatens to transform the human experience forever?

From the Author:

After reading Glide, many of my readers ask if I really believe that humans will develop more environmentally-friendly technologies in the near future. I like to point out that the future is already here! Sadly, new technology gets lost in the Sturm und Drang of commerce and politics. There are fortunes to be preserved, and if a new technology challenges those fortunes, well...it's like Dr. Magigate's Cape Knot laboratory in Glide: "For years, Cape Knot had been the source of great intrigue and controversy: on the one hand, incubating a never-ending supply of inventions that sprouted new business models and addressed myriad social and civic challenges; on the other hand, disregarding industrial convention and the protocols of product lifecycles, thereby rendering generations of products obsolete long before their intended return on investment had been realized. In other words, tycoons and politicians alike kept a wary eye on Cape Knot's tenants, while public opinion of the lab verged on superstitious, wavering between acclaim and distrust."
Still, the most promising new technologies have a way of breaking through the inertia of institutional wealth, and I suspect this breakthrough rate will increase as climate and health events around the world underscore our need. After all, I'm a glass-half-full kind of guy!
