Y2K: The Book! Excerpts Vol. 12

Posted in erbooker by erbooker on 04/20/2012

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 Twelve

“Oh no,” Dubrow said in a high voice.

~~~

Every one was dead.

~~~

The squeak of wet footsteps echoed down the stairwell.

Jules Hartmire wept.

~~~

The deep ravines on the man’s cheeks were perpetually filled with moisture, creating shiny lines like open wounds.

~~~

Chau managed a last look at Schwager. So pathetic.

~~~

He looked at her, his face a collection of strain.

~~~

He smiled at her and exhaled long.

~~~

“Dan Van Lan,” Macey said.

~~~

Admiral Robek looked admiringly at Billy Stamp.

~~~

His voice rolled through the hallways into terminal rooms, under doors and over carpets. Speakers above keyboards and monitors delivered the rich voice of Solvang’s president.

~~~

Grandma Solvang and the kids patted at Susan’s frail figure as she broke into tears. Mark kissed her.

~~~

Sweeny and Dietz stared down the length of their launch tubes.

~~~

“This is the nation’s most powerful code processing facility,” Mark thundered.

~~~

He wanted to be alone to drink a can of Coke and watch the ocean, as he’d done so many times with Morey.

~~~

He wanted to yell so his friend would look. They intended to go boogie boarding together during this rendezvous in Hawaii, but Y2K moved too quickly.

~~~

“That’s a handful, sir.”

“Yes it is.”

~~~

Oh, that Chau.

~~~

MORE TO COME!
