DATA COUP

k-Pack

624 views

Looking through some disks I found some more unfinished business from around 1993. I had been writing articles for the Western New York Atari User Group (WNYAUG) newsletter, POKEY, for a couple of years before I started running out of things to write about. The newsletter was a good place to hone my writing skills and decided to try my hand at fiction.

 

The story, “Data Coup” was written as a serial to appear in POKEY over 5 issues. The first chapter was published in the last paper edition. Then I found chapter 3 on a monthly disk issue. Then the group stopped publishing its own newsletter. I don’t think anyone got to read 2, 4, and 5. So here is your chance.

 

As you read them please remember:

 

1 “Data Coup” was written in 1993.

2. The story line developed as I wrote each chapter. Each chapter was written in an evening.

3. The Atari ST - Word Perfect files needed considerable work to get them into a readable format. A few spelling errors were corrected and a couple of “then”s were changed to “than”s, but for better or worse it is the same story.

4. This was an experiment to see if I could write fiction.

5. It was never fully published.

6. This has been my only attempt to write fiction.

7. Don’t attempt to read this while operating a motor vehicle.
