it was ok
bookshelves: science-fiction
Read in January, 1989

Geeky Silicon Valley engineers save the world by developing smart weapons which, like, just kill the bad guys and don't cause a lot of collateral damage and all that shit. Cool, huh?

There's this great sequence where a software bug looks like it's going to result in the weapons Doing Something Bad, but the alpha geek manages to fix it in time. Sometimes deadlines bring out the best in you.

Ben From that review two stars seems very generous.

Manny It's a low two stars. But I do remember thinking it was kind of fun for a terribly-written book with an insane premise, and I finished it in one sitting...
