In my technoparanoid thriller Acts of The Apostles (which you can download for free by clicking on the left), two characters named Dieter Steffen and Pavel Isaacs develop a nanomachine for rearranging human DNA. There are implications for Gulf War Syndrome, and hints of a plot to lure the Americans back to Iraq for a second war, where they’ll be beaten. (Acts was published in 1999). They call the machine Feynman Nine.
Recently sometime-Wetmachiner Ron sent me these links:
At some point in the future I’m gonna compile a compendium of all the stuff I made up for that book that has since happened.
Or else I’ll get Ron to do it — he’s been sending me “Acts of the Apostles technology sitings” for years.
