All it takes to change
the world is one visionary—and a team
of people to keep him alive.

Kevin Heber had it good. He had his own lab, a colleague he could trust, and an idea that could make him millions. Using his father's breakthrough technology in direct neural interfacing, he and his friend Taki have created a new entertainment media—live action adventure in micro mechanical scale. Bug Park: The ultimate out of body experience. And Taki's uncle wants to take it public.

Two problems:

Kevin and Taki are teenagers.
Somebody wants to squash Bug Park dead, and Kevin's father along with it.
When you're a teenager, even a teenager with a rich, indulgent parent, you don't have a lot of power. But when things get very small, the rules change. Physics changes. What every body knows, ain't so, the weak are mighty, and the mighty and the powerful can be brought down by those they thought they've already trodden underfoot. And even those who think they own the world can learn the hard way that innocence is not another word for "stupid,"

At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

He wrotn over a dozen novels including Paths to Otherwhere and Bug Park, the "Giants" series, the New York Times bestsellers The Proteus Operation and Endgame Enigma and the Prometheus Award Winner The Multiplex Man."

I came upon this novel after a period of time when I wasn't reading much. Because I had spent so much time away from reading, it took me months to read this book. I enjoyed it nonetheless though. Now I read Stephen King and Clive BArker novels. THis novel had an excellent plot and good pacing.
