MICHAELMAS
Laurent Michaelmas is ostensibly a leading
TV news reporter. In fact, aided by a
highly sophisticated virtually intelligent
-computer system, Domino, he runs the
world, By infiltrating every sort of elec
tronic network Domino is able to manitor
and, at Michaelmas's instruction,
infuence all kinds of secret data
Michaelmas should be avare of every thing
that is going on in the world, but he and
Domino are taken completely by surprise
by the announcement that Walter
Norwood, an American astronaut believed
to have died in a crash, is actually alive
and restored to health in a Swiss
sanatorium
In company with other reporters
Michaelmas flies out to investigate the
story. He meets Norwood, who appears
perfectly genuine, but Michaelmas remains
troubled by the conviction that this is not
the real Norwood at all, but a virtualy
indistinguishable simulacrum. If that is
true, who or what is the impostor? And
what is the reason for the subterfuge? As
he investigates, Michaelmas finds himself
faced with a situation with potentially
disastrous international repercussions.
Long one of sf's most criticaly- acclaimed
writers, Algis Budrys has produced once
again a fascinating novel
