Light edgewear to the DJ. Suntanned spine. DJ is in mylar cover for protection. Book is clean, with squared binding. Solid hinges. No other distractions.    ... the dissipation of personal identity in an overly technological, secretive, misunderstood, and c  Book Club Edition  1 x 7 x 4.1 Inches  246 pages  Where Can He Be - this man who posted such an amazing score of new identities? He rides the shockwave of the twenty-first century as lightly as a surfer rides his board. One might almost better ask what he hasn't done than what he has: Utopia designer, Delphi gambler, computer sabotage consultant, even priest...! Who is this man who shifts from role to role at will? Only one thing is definite about him. He is not who the machines believe he is. Webbed in a continental data-net that year by year draws tighter as more and still more information is fed to it, most people are apathetic, frightened, resigned to what ultimately will be a total abolition of individual privacy. A whole new reason has been invented for paranoia: it is beyond doubt - whoever you are! - that someone, somewhere, knows something about you that you wanted kept secret ... and you stand no chance of learning what it is. But this man's different. He hasn't given up. On the shockwave of tomorrow he floats and leaps and is himself. For how long? At work day in, day out, and never weary, the patient emotionless computers are on the trail of this lone fugitive who dares defy laws made to suit machinery, not men.
