Description

Aurora Award Finalist story from a multi-award winning author.

"Doug Smith is, quite simply, the finest short-story writer Canada has ever produced in the science fiction and fantasy genres, and he's also the most prolific. His stories are a treasure trove of riches that will touch your heart while making you think."
-- Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Hominids and FlashForward

"A great storyteller with a gifted and individual voice."
-- Charles de Lint

"One of Canada's most original writers of speculative fiction."
-- Library Journal

DESCRIPTION:
The year is 1999. The world awaits a new millennium with a mixture of anticipation and dread. The fear stems from the much-hyped Y2K computer problem, the so-called millennium bug, which could cause uncorrected programs to fail all over the world.

PCWare is the world's largest software company. John Dunne is team leader for the company's newest operating system, the first with a virtual reality user interface, complete with virtual human agents. But on Millennium Eve, John has problems. A Y2K bug has been discovered in the software... and John's virtual girlfriend has become far too real.

REVIEWS:
"The story deals with the Y2k bug, and although that might seem dated now, the story is not, since its ideas continue to be relevant today."
-- Bibliopolis
