The Nine Inch Bride series turns a fictional lens on national and world events that is as clear, focused and hard-hitting as the best non-fiction and journalism in America today.
A New Kind of Science Fiction
This is not the galactic sci-fi you've come to expect. No wild-eyed future is depicted here. The Nine Inch Bride series begins with imaginative storytelling where non-fiction thought leaders leave off, providing a subtly harrowing preview of 'coming attractions.'
A Credible Hyper-Capitalist Dystopia
The first book in this remarkably original and literate series of political novels is An Epiphany On Wall Street, where revolutionary meets 'The Street' in a well-paced and utterly absorbing 280 something pages—a prescriptive bonfire of capitalist political culture.
Dangerous Curves Ahead
Working at many levels to recast today's big questions in a fresh lens, An Epiphany On Wall Street begins as a psychological study of Ken, a Wall St. analyst brought down in a market crash, and develops into a kind of meta-democratic polemic led in riotous dialog by the uniquely eloquent Sa.
The conversation, continued in Suited For War, book two in the series, is sharply revealing of our times and all the more disturbing behind its gossamer veil of what lies ahead. Their uncanny story will enchant you and leave you with an enriched sense of what we can achieve. (See book descriptions below.)

Book Description: An Epiphany On Wall Street
In this timely political fiction we meet Ken, a young Wall Street analyst thrown out of work in a major market crash, facing financial and emotional ruin in Empire City, the private corporation Manhattan has become some decades in the future. As Ken spirals down, battling and succumbing to desperation and despair, he is rescued by a uniquely talented young woman with a dedicated revolutionary agenda. Together they form a most extraordinary partnership in a mission to change the world.
Sahar, or Sa for short, is the individual’s individual in many ways, with talents that enable her to spy on the machinations of the world’s richest and most powerful man, on whose Catskill estate, a nerve center to the world, she lives in secrecy. While the wilderness estate has transformed her into an athlete and warrior, the Net, a future amalgam of current technologies, has made her a sophisticated seductress and dissembler, living virtual lives online in the wider world.
In romping dialog with the insightful Sa, Ken returns from the brink of self-destruction and enlists for high pay in her revolutionary enterprise. His job? Her capitalist.
Written mostly in the form of brisk dialogue among an unusually intriguing cast of characters, this is the wry, symbolic tale of a consummate revolutionary armed with the know-how and means to turn the tides on the Wall Street political machine. The present and future, and the real and unreal, fuel a delightful and provocative bonfire of corporate political culture in America.

Book Description: Suited For War
The second book in the series, Suited For War, continues directly from Ken and Sahar's fitful beginnings in Book One. Here they become odd partners in a duel of espionage against the all-powerful financier Wellingham and his consortium of government and corporate foreign policy interests. From the serenity of a beach house on the British Virgin Islands Ken journeys to terror-ridden South Asia as double agent for Sa within the Wellingham multinational empire.
On his own, Ken communicates with Sa over the Net, through which routine video calls have expanded business and life into new dimensions, permitting a virtual world in which Sa remotely thrives.
In his mid-seventies, the gruff capitalist “Old Man” Wellingham is hosting a board meeting of his private bank, whose members include many power players in their own right, people of influence in and out of government at the highest level. At home among the many rooms of his mansion, Sa has them under surveillance at a time of crisis.
Through her lens on the Manor nerve center and Ken’s eyes and ears in the field, they uncover secrets about world banking, private multinationals, and government manipulation of sovereign affairs which threaten to upset the business and foreign policy apple-cart for the powerful and dangerous players.
In South Asia and again in South America, they confront government and corporate plans to test and field new weapon technologies against guerrilla insurgents. Sa and Ken risk capture and death as they discover and strive to expose deadly clandestine operations to the world.
