My thanks to fellow Tacoman and veteran author Eric Hanberg for sponsoring the Very Nice Web Site RSS feed this week. Eric’s new book *The Lead Cloak* is on sale this week. I’m only partway in but it’s precisely the kind of science fiction I like. Here’s Erik’s tongue-in-cheek introduction for Very Nice Web Site readers:
Hi, my name is Erik and I live in Tacoma, Washington, just like John Moltz. One time I saw him when I was waiting in line at the Apple Store. Otherwise, we don’t know each other.
I wrote a sci-fi novel called The Lead Cloak, about a new technology in the future called the Lattice, which is like a super Internet. Basically, it does all the same things our Internet does today, but with a higher creep factor.
The book is really good. There’s an opening action scene that I like a lot, then some world-building about how the Lattice has shaped society, then a crazy plot twist that will keep you up reading well past midnight.
If all that sounds interesting to you, you should check it out.
