Y2K: The Book! Excerpts Vol. 11

Posted in erbooker by erbooker on 04/18/2012

Y2K: It’s Already Too Late is computer manual author Jason Kelly’s first delving into the world of fiction, written in 1998. In this novel, Mark Solvang heads Solvang Solutions–a multinational Y2K protection software company faced with the heady task of saving the world from certain destruction. Intrigue! Action! Computers! The following are excerpts from my new favorite book of all-time…

Volume Eleven

Schwager slapped her face. Her tears splashed across his hand and onto the computer screen.

~~~

“I’ve worked with him for years and never liked him. But he is not stupid.”

~~~

Being paranoid and poor was out of the question.

~~~

“Request payment in the form of gold?” Schwager asked, incredulous. “I know a low-tech world leads to low-tech answers, but we’re starting to sound like pirates.”

~~~

“If you want to get somebody when they’re down, you don’t stop and wait for them to get up.”

~~~

Pennington’s eyes sizzled.

~~~

He didn’t speak of [China] as one speaks of Iraq or North Africa, like mosquitoes buzzing around the head of the United States, needing a swat now and then.

~~~

“What a stupid plan,” Kleewein said.

“It was actually a superbly conceived plan.”

~~~

“Jesus Christ,” Pritchett said. “You’re talking about World War III.”

~~~

Pritchett remained in his chair, glasses off, rubbing his eyes. “My God.” That was all he said.

~~~

Vince Dubrow needed to use the restroom.

~~~

He unfastened the man’s pants and dropped them to his knees, then set him on the toilet, leaning against the divider.

~~~

He glanced back at the stall. The guard’s pants were rumpled around his ankles. It looked normal. Just a guy relieving himself.

~~~

Schwager, Dubrow, Platt and everybody else had risked too much of their careers to let everything disappear because of a roomful of smart people.

~~~

Pritchett’s face froze on his skull, looks of disbelief and rage competing for dominance.

~~~

He would not be able to sleep, but he would be as quiet as a dead man.

~~~

Dan and the team were escorted by the lead agent down an empty white hallway to a terminal room filled with more agents and several engineers who looked like they’d been plucked off their couches while eating popcorn during a football game.

~~~

Their hearts pounded in the quiet prerain.

~~~

“Everybody,” Hartmire said, “we need to evacuate to the basement. There’s a tank approaching the building.”

“What?” Kleewein said.

~~~

“Dad, is that a tank?” Jeremiah asked, eyes wide.

“Yes.”

~~~

None of the civilians had never seen a tank before.

~~~

MORE TO COME!
