When Jack Burroughs, a brilliant young computer programmer, is given his pink slip, he is offered the opportunity to use his skills for a little industrial espionage. Donning the guise of his online alter ego, Max Kool, Burroughs transforms himself into one of the hippest cybernetic surfers on the InfoBahn. "Bethke has taken the computer industry and thrown it in a blender . . . savagely funny".--"Seattle Weekly".

An ex-surfer, ex-rock musician, ex-teacher, and ex-sausage maker, Bruce Bethke now lives a life of quiet bourgeois complacency in suburban Minnesota, where he works in software development for a really, really nice multibillion-dollar multinational company totally unlike the evil and psychotic multibillion-dollar multinational company depicted in this book. Honest. Besides being the accredited creator of the word "cyberpunk," Bethke has written numerous short stories, which have appeared in such magazines as Amazing, Asimov's, Weird Tales, and Easyriders, and more than two hundred computer software books, manuals, and articles. Headcrashis his first novel.Review:
Bethke's send-up of the cyberpunk genre isn't just hilarious, it's also lots more accurate and insightful than books that take themselves so-o-o seriously. Headcrash is flat-out fun. -- David Brin
