Years ago, I tried to convince Tom Clancy to write a book about a next-generation conflict between Japan and China. Unfortunately, he never got around to it, so I finally put pen to paper. In the end, it was one of the most enjoyable books I’ve ever written. Imagining weapons systems that are right around the corner and how they would be deployed was a lot of fun.
I titled it The Von Neumann Machine, but I think the publisher wants to go with The Patriot Attack. We’ll see. Should be out sometime around fall 2016.
