A propos de cet article

Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. "In this wildly funny satire, Jerzy Rugby, a computer scientist who has dedicated his life to the creation of AI robots, finds himself blamed for the unleashing of new and unusually damaging computer viruses called 'ants.' Investigating, Rugby discovers he's been set up as the fall guy in a huge conspiracy. At great personal danger, he enters the virtual world of the viral ants hoping to end their invasion and clear his name. Given the explosive growth of spam and hacking in the ten years since it was published, the novel comes across as rather prophetic." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-931. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#68459). N° de réf. du libraire 68459

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Jerzy Rugby, a software hacker involved in the development of a virtual-world product, gets into hot water when the ""virtual ants"" he had been using break into the real world and destroy network television. By the award-winning author of Wetware.


This super-smart and wildly goofy work by Cyberpunk author Rudy Rucker is a hilarious and totally engrossing tale of electronic pestilence and conspiracy. Protagonist Jerzy Rugby is trying to create truly intelligent robots. While his actual life crumbles, Rugby toils in his virtual office, testing the robots online. Then, something goes wrong and zillions of computer virus ants invade the net. Rugby is the man wanted for the crime. He's been set up to take a fall for a giant cyberconspiracy and he needs to figure out who--or what--is sabotaging the system in order to clear his name. Plunging deep into the virtual worlds of Antland of Fnoor to find some answers, Rugby confronts both electronic and all-too-real perils, facing death itself in a battle for his freedom. The Hacker and the Ants is funny, chilling, and surprisingly rich.
