The Maury Nonesuch

This comic gallimaufry of a novel is chock full of fun and lore. As the author writes, it is a combination of the Chinese classic Dream of the Red Chamber and the real life experiences of some healthy boys and girls in the early Sixties in America. More, the novel is a roman a clef where every character in the novel is a cipher for a real-life person who remains unnamed. The Maury Nonesuch is a cipher for the real Maury News, the high school newspaper for Maury High School. The author of the novel was the editor of the Maury News, and many of his staff helped write this novel or provided explanatory notes. In fact the book was an early attempt to write a novel using the Internet. The high school is now slated for demolition, but the memories remain. This harmless classic of "coming of age" is a web work of those memories, pun intended.

The Bitcoin Refuge in KL

This story is the first chapter of the stunning sequel to E. W. Farnsworth's worldwide bestseller Bitcoin Fandango (2015), which focuses on solving cryptocurrency crimes. Ollie Handwell, the policeman who gets seconded to the intelligence community because of his technical and street knowledge about cryptocurrencies, continues his work outside the normal jurisdictional boundaries and picks up a thread that at first seems to be a funding conduit for Islamist terror against the USA. With the CIA charter to pursue this thread wherever it may lead, Ollie finds himself getting deeper and deeper into the labyrinth of campaign financing for the 2016 Presidential election. Only he has the background and knowledge to ferret out the truth, but the closer he gets to that truth, the more he hazards everything, including his romance because political finance has become a killing field where rogues, terrorists and predatory nations vie to control the power of the American people.
