In NU LOGIC, Rise of the Neos, accomplished virologist, Dr. Janot (whose specialty is crossover pathogens), threatens the promising Glide era with his wildly popular augmented reality gaming world—Neology. Only the genius inventor, Captain Magigate, can stop him, but Magigate is lost in the past with his erstwhile lover and foe, the Prophet. Teenage artist Maddy’s cryptic paintings hold the key to reaching the Captain, but will she discover their secret in time to stop Dr. Janot, whose Connected Reality vision threatens to transform the human experience forever?
NU LOGIC is the sequel to GLIDE and is Book 2 in the Glide Trilogy, which is set alternately in a future world shaped by the miraculous inventions of Dr. Magigate, and the preceding dystopian era dominated by the Prophet and her Academy.
Glide Concept Trailer
It’s the future. But nearly a century ago, civilization was collapsing. Environmental catastrophe, worldwide destitution, and hostile regimes had become the order of the day. The people cried out for leaders who could deliver them from their doom. What they got was The Academy…
The FAIR Academy, an elite oligarchy of the wealthy and powerful. Ruling from their fortified capital of Aerome, they sent drone fighters to destroy all who defied their vision. And so, the world continued to fall, drawing its final, raggéd breaths.
Then came The Rust. A cybernetic pathogen that raged through human and computer alike, toppling the steel behemoths of Aerome in a matter of days.
It was amidst these most dire circumstances that Dr. Domino Magigate, nicknamed ‘The Captain’, made a discovery that changed everything. A discovery greater than fire, greater than the wheel, even greater than fossil fuels…
He called it Glide.
Glide ushered in a new era, defined by restoration and hope. Slowly but surely, the people forgot their old fears.
Michael and Madeleine have grown up in a world run by the silent, clean, affordable technology known as Glide. To them, the tyranny of the Academy is nothing more than ghost stories. But the stories come alive when they meet Samantha Biggs, nicknamed ‘The Prophet’.
Now the ashes of war are being rekindled. Mike and Maddy must prevent The Prophet from finishing the work she began so long ago. But they will not be alone. There is still one man in Seaville who remembers those times. Glide is his legacy. And The Prophet is his destiny.

It’s the future. But nearly a century ago, the world seemed poised on the brink of disaster. Environmental blights competed with economic catastrophes and hostile regimes for the worst headlines of the day. A special senate convened the Academy to take control before it was too late. It was called FAIR. But it wasn’t. Suffering in the Academy’s iron grip for decades, the world drew what seemed sure to be its final, ragged breaths. Then a miracle happened: a blow from the heavens struck the Academy straight through the heart in the capital of Aerome. Their steel behemoths fell from the skies. The Rust, a plague that raged through technology and biology with equal fury, was soon cured, and a new invention ushered in an era of restoration and hope. Slowly but surely, people forgot their old fears. They even forgot the woman who had brought them so near to ultimate destruction, the leader of the FAIR Academy: the Prophet of Doom. That was then. Michael and Madeleine have grown up in a world run by the silent, clean, affordable technology called glide. To them the tyranny of the Academy is nothing more than a history lesson. But when they stumble upon a ramshackle mansion on a deserted beach, they find that the perils of the past have followed them into the present. As they discover the truth about what happened at Aerome, they unleash a woman long held captive, a woman who, like a sleeping dragon, should never have been awakened. Now the ashes of war are being rekindled. Michael and Maddy must prevent the Prophet from finishing the work she began so long ago. But they will not be alone. There is still one man in Seaville who remembers those times. Glide is his legacy. Memory is his responsibility. And the Prophet is his destiny.

“Hey Phil, I heard you’re thinking about putting in a pond back here. Maybe turning those caves over there into a waterfall,” Derek says. He lights a cigarette and points with its glowing tip.
We’re sitting in my backyard with Bev and Marley Ann, sipping cocktails and listening to crickets and cicadas outperform Jerry Garcia, enjoying one of those impromptu happy hours that makes summer summer.
“Where’d you hear that?” I ask, glancing at Bev who evades me by following Derek’s gesture toward the rock wall known to us as The Caves.
I say known to us meaning known also to the flourishing tribe of Tamias inhabiting the wall. Of course, the chipmunks have their own phonemes for home sweet home that sound something like a long trill and a cluck, not to be confused with the rapid trill and cluck they line up to chant each morning, dutifully facing east, from the crack of dawn until the sun has risen and I’m wide awake…
