I Never Said I Was A Lesbian

A Novella by

Silicon Valley, during the dot-com boom. Money falls like the sunshine, cubicle farmers till their high-tech soil, and everyone is drinking the IPO Kool-Aid. What do you do when an amusing and hot nineteen-year-old opens your eyes to the secret universe that is right in front of you? How do you walk through the days, seeing what you do for the triviality you know it to be? And what do you tell your lesbian lover about it all - especially after your will-power has slipped and you screwed your intern on your boss's desk?

This short story, from the author of the acclaimed thrillers The Manuscript and Pandora's Sisters, takes the reader on a 5,000-word perambulation through the sublime absurdity that is our numbing, thrilling, high-tech, hyper-sexualized modern existence. Funny, sad, and true, it asks what's real, what has meaning in an empty and Godless (and totally miraculous) cosmos, and what's the truth about our real and implied commitments to other people, especially when things begin to fall apart.

Also included in the short story collection, Don't Shoot Me In The Ass, And Other Stories.

Praise for Michael Stephen Fuchs

"Just what a technothriller should be: taut, violent, smart, and very, very technical. As if The Da Vinci Code were written by someone who wasn't an idiot." - Cory Doctorow

"Guns, blackmail, computers, unfathomable corruption, angry young Taoists, and a bloody quest for a mysterious manuscript. Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt, put in a firefight.'" - Kirkus Reviews

"Once the guns come out, it switches gear into a dream-like actioner where characters discuss favourite automatic rifles, perform startling feats of derring-do, and bust caps in various asses. Definitely worth a look." - Dr. Ian Hocking, author of Deja Vu

"Some writers leave you thinking they know things we ordinary mortals don't have access to. Fuchs is stupendously talented." - Creme de la Crime
