Product description

Product Description

Bill Martin’s favorite online game turns out to be a haven for con artists – con artists who aren’t human.

“This was an imaginative tale of intrigue with many twists and turns that I enjoyed.”—Sam Tomaino, SFRevu

“A neat variation on an SF classic. The character makes the game work.”—Lois Tilton, Locus Online Reviews

“Since it is as likely that our washing machines will take over the world as it is that our software will teach itself to exploit us, the inventive quality of ‘Heist’ is what makes this tale merry reading. Jigging through the computers’ artificial world of Realms of Daelemil and fantasizing alongside the main character about the nature of a society governed by ‘sensible’ source code is entertaining.”— KJ Hannah Greenberg, Tangent Online
