I am the author of two nonfiction books: one for engineers (Designing Object-Oriented Software, Prentice Hall 1990) and the other for the informed public (Digital Woes, Addison-Wesley 1993), which tried to warn about fake news, information bubbles and political polarization, identity theft, loss of privacy, the collapse of information-based industries such as the music and publishing, and the increasing unreliability of things and processes in general, as everything becomes more software-based.
Upon retirement, I wrote Riding the Cyclone, a memoir of my bizarre and dysfunctional coming-of-age (https://www.amazon.com/dp/1468011367/). Because of its personal nature and reference to then-living persons, I chose to self-publish, notifying only a small circle of those directly concerned. Even so, it still sells, and I still occasionally hear from a stranger who stayed up all night reading it.
I hope soon to publish my first novel, Goose Pond, which explores the relationship between humans and the natural world amid the unfolding ecological catastrophes of climate change and overpopulation.
