Overview

The Bluezone: Somewhere deep within this last bastion of democratic society, segregated from the chaotic slums and destitute refugee camps, lurks a technology that could either push civilization further into the abyss or bring forth its salvation.

Struggling to save his innovative hybrid techno-finance company from malign threats leftover from twenty-two years of severe economic depression, a young Uberman ends up fighting for his life against ruthless enemies. Corporate Banksters are increasingly adopting unscrupulous strategies and tactics. Dangerous slumlords have infiltrated every facet of the economy and run their gangs like small quasi-nations. Rebellious artificial intelligent entities, which may or may not believe the human world actually exists, are going rogue.

To make matters worse, the Bluezone government, so obsessed in asserting its authority, is willing to risk all-out civil war. Not that James Tucker, a war veteran and corporate Uberman by the age of nineteen, and a staunch proponent of alternative economic theorem, minds putting his life on the line. At stake is the destruction of his country, the disillusionment of his fans, and the prospect of betraying a promise he made to his daughter.

THE BLUEZONE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN.

About the Author

Bill wrote his first 'hardcore' science fiction book in second grade during book week. It was a five-page interplanetary epic, with a montage front cover and full-page drawings. He came second in the competition which annoyed the hell out of him. His first ever sci-fi read was Isaac Asimov's Space Ranger series, and since then has read and watched everything and anything that can be even remotely classified as science fiction. He has produced a few guerrilla films back when that was a thing and has recently been credited with the discovery of two exoplanets. These days his reading time is sacrificed in the pursuit of writing down his own stories from ideas he has accumulated over the years.
