"New" again.

This novel has been re-issued by Simon & Schuster as an e-book.

Also available as paperback.

 

Somewhat controversial, Too Easy got many very admiring reviews,

for example, Kinky Friedman (a well-known novelist)

said it's "so well-written it's frightening."

 

Too Easy was translated into German, French, and Dutch. Best described in a cluster of words: suspense, romantic, erotic, intense, adultery, criminal.

 

(Note: this is the US cover. Simon & Schuster put a couple on the cover, so the Europeans did the same. Note, it's not a story about a couple, it's about three people:

Robert Saunders, Anne Saunders, Kathy Becker.)

 

"A witty and entertaining look at our dark sides."--Kirkus

 

Too Easy had many passionate covers--see Gallery of Covers.

 

Gallery also has jacket copy and reviews.

6: LITERARY SCI-FI

 

 

 

Aggressive AI invades young boy....

Can he save himself?....

Can he save the rest of us? 

 

Story takes place in Silicon Valley over two days circa 2018. Human intrigue and military action flow into each other.

 

White House wants to rein in the world's leading AI pioneer. A small-scale military attack on the man's lab triggers an unexpected response: the laboratory seems to defend itself intelligently.

 

In the confusion, an advanced AI prototype figures out how to escape. Inside a boy named Carlos.

 

MITCH, the AI, was invented by the famous Dr. Newman. He’s paranoid and competitive, and his progeny is the same. Dr. Newman trained MITCH to win at every game. The game they're playing now is: who's boss?

 

The White House and Dr. Newman skirmish over who should pay for his lab, and then they realize two people are missing. And someone or something is harassing Dr. Newman's main competitor. 

 

Carlos, meanwhile, is out on the streets, skillfully surviving, following the orders of something in his head.

 

MITCH, to prove he’s superior, directs the street-wise Carlos to buy a gun and shoot Dr. Newman.

 

Now Dr. Newman, shot in the leg, realizes what he has let loose in the world. He's deliriously happy, if only he can bring the thing home. 

 

(I've been following robotics for a long time. My particular fascination is with the crossover point-- that is, when dumb machine become smarter than humans. Is this good news? Or did we jump off a cliff, never to climb back?)

 

I LOVED it! It’s interesting and fast-paced.”  
               Laurie Endicott Thomas,

author of "Not Trivial: How Studying the Traditional Liberal Arts Can Set You Free"


new edition coming soon


 

7: EXPERIMENTAL FICTION

 

 

NEWS FLASH: ***

        American Dreams***

 

 

Perhaps American literature's

most successful experimental novel.

O

American Dreams is a kaleidoscopic look at the USA.

 

If you like the offbeat, the surreal,

the literary, the highly original,

A D might be for you.

Please check reviews on Amazon

 

"Price has written a funny, stylistically innovative novel that includes everything a popular novel should have:

romance, sex, adultery, crime, religion,

sickness, death and even Texas." --Publishers Weekly

 

 

 

 

And for dessert

 

A WITTY SATIRICAL POEM

 

I casually claim that Theoryland is the best long poem in American literature.

  In truth, there is not much competition in this category.

 

Theoryland is a mini-epic in five cantos satirizing the faddish thinking,

 crazed competition, and reckless sophistry-making found in our universities.

 

 It's fun. You can actually read it a second time and have more fun than the first time.

 

 Collectors of literary exotica might want to order this little book (Amazon).

That would be appreciated. But you needn't do so to read the poem.

Theoryland is readily available on the Internet.

For example, it's the 5th item on this site 

 (and features a recording of the poet reading Cantos One and Two).

 

In the rooms the critics come and sneer:

my intertext is all veneer.
I may have sinned, my closure fated,
Who knew this jargon was two months dated?

Memo to colleagues: "I'm back!"

--MY THEME SONG--

 

 

ARS POETICA

oh to uncage words
as startling as birds
naked and silken
full of song and shriek
flung into the envious air
on a wonder of wings
to spin and soar and rise
dazzling our days
with surprise
