the power tools capable to massively destroy, and the stupidity to use it,
citizens’ complicity, and the
ridiculousness of having technological power placed in the hands of the unwitting.
Teen novelists often examine society freshly out of their perception of social failure. -12- is no exception. Matthew Francis-Landau explains, “2012 is my first year to vote. I am inundated with politicians shouting stupid disagreements while Banks mismanage money of citizens and then knowingly steal houses of their patrons. Privacy rights are stomped upon by government elected officials despite Constitutional protection while citizens yawn drowsily. Weaponry is exported for profit to soon-to-be-enemies. My generation is incensed with these types of societal events. My book -12- focuses a sci-fi futuristic microscope on to the mindsets of citizens who allow these activities to take place.”
Matthew Francis-Landau, author of -12- is no stranger to technological advancements. He soon will graduate from California Academy of Mathematics and Science High School, which ranks among the top 25 in the nation’s schools. Francis-Landau earns spending money as a computer programmer and invests countless hours weekly creating land, air and water robots. He is known also among the underground wizards of the open-source programmers who impact many dimensions of technology and coding. Francis-Landau’s views Artificial Intelligence as a key to human evolution and will pursue his University training with an AI focus.
“12” is a swift read which will entertain every reader, intrigue the techno-geek, and will inspire the social-minded political activists of the ’60’s and 2012 alike.
