Synopsis: Nobody could have imagined that information technology, the towering colossus that dominates our world, would meet its match in an innocent, six-year-old girl named Daphne. Yet the vengeful horror that this psychically gifted child lures out of the secret recesses of the world's computers rapidly grows into a global calamity. As the crisis deepens, powers darker and more mysterious than modern science can understand must be invoked in order to defend a threatened humanity. In Bugs, Theodore Roszak offers a tour de force exercise in science fiction. He ingeniously combines the divergent worlds of high tech, the occult, and feminist psychology. With admirable ambiguity, he leaves us to wonder if Daphne's "bugs"-these arcane forces that stubbornly resist the advance of technology-are mankind's enemies or allies.

About the Author: Theodore Roszak is the author of The Making of a Counter Culture, Where The Wasteland Ends, Voice of the Earth, and The Cult of Information. His novels Flicker and The Memoirs of Elizabeth Frankenstein are under option for major motion pictures. He has been a Guggenheim Fellow and was twice nominated for the National Book Award.
