Joel thought briefly about turning and letting off a snapshot but then his feet found the factory floor and he needed to move. Fast. But where to? He leaped onto the conveyer belt, bouncing awkwardly off a robot arm as it disassembled a finished device back into its component parts…

Joel is a gun-for-hire, professionally disinterested in politics or business affairs. His paymasters are a different matter, and he finds himself in a fight to the death over the fate of the greatest stock market bubble of all.

I wrote Future Speculation to be fast and fun. I had just read The Demolished Man by Alfred Bester and wanted to try an opening that screams out of the starting blocks almost as much as Bester’s book
