From the Author
While Glitch revolves around a discovery in space, it's really a book about Earth - the technologies and social changes of our near future. Some of it is close enough to touch - Spaceport America is a real place - you can rent time on a private telescope today - self-driving cars are almost here - India's space program is taking off. Some are farther out, like global warming, herds of mammoths, and the depopulation of the America West.
I was also inspired by my own frustrating experience with lay-offs. I hope that part isn't too realistic, because it wasn't much fun.
If you enjoy peeking into a future you'll live to see, this is the book for you.
