A billion-dollar business merger delayed by accusation of fraud.
A paranoid obsession with a best friend’s beguiling wife.
A child killed by meningitis.
Are these events linked by a burning chain of revenge and the union of tech genius with dark religion?
Christian Jarvik suspects the connection, but will pursuing the truth risk his business, his sanity, and more than he can possibly imagine?
William’s written for the Guardian, the Financial Times and the BBC, among many other publications.
His three novels (The Donated, XYZ and The Algorithm) are cautionary tales about impacts on individuals and families from their technology interactions. He explores this broad theme from very different human angles.
“I’m fascinated by science and tech; its potential, its problems, its misuse and most specifically how it affects people. And for all its enormous impact, we didn’t vote for it. It simply arrived when some giant firm said so. But there has never been a more relevant time to explore our relationship with technological progress and the benefits we have been sold.”
“I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say, we are challenged to understand and make the best use of technology as it floods every moment and endeavour of our lives, and endangers our health, our sanity, and even our very existence.”
