New Lamps for Old - Part II


So, I zipped through the files of the reverted title, The Trinity Vector, cleaned up the artifacts, justified the type, added a cover image.

Trinity is one of my favorite stand-alone novels, and, really, a great potential movie, if you are a producer looking for a winner ...

I've put it up as a PDF here, PayPal button, and I'll get around to sticking it up on Amazon.com, soon as I get a few spare minutes. Book is fourteen years old, but it holds up pretty well, technology-wise. I missed a couple things, but I didn't fix any of that -- it's a novel of its time.

Onward and upward ...

Excellent! That's one of my all-time favorites. I've lost count of how many times I've re-read it....

Do you have a blurb to go with it? Not that I wouldn't read something just because it's got your name on it, but I'm curious what it's about.

Blurb:

"Publisher's Note
The acclaimed author of The Forever Drug presents an epic novel of technology and transcendence. Three strange silver boxes, joined together, have the power to unlock the secrets of the universe. One man wanted to destroy them, one man wanted to exploit them, and one woman wanted no part of them. These three people have nothing to lose--and everything to gain."

Seen prices on the original ranging from almost nothing up to sixty-odd bucks on eBay. Strange world.

>"Three strange silver boxes"<

Boxes...Yes.

Not translucent Ben-Wa balls.

Man, the evidence just keeps piling up...

Steve Perry said...

Yep, the evidence does. More you talk, Kid, the dimmer your bulb appears.

Allusion. A-l-l-u-s-i-o-n. Look it up. Learn. Switch out that fifteen watter for a forty, at least ...

P.S. Bobbe --

If you look carefully at the image on the new cover, you might see what appears to be an eye within the crystal.

Another allusion. Not "illusion ..."
