A Short Story

Book Cover: The Masq

"How many photos are you in?" Francis Tipple asks his audience.

"Suddenly you’re a meme. Famous overnight, for all the wrong reasons, and you are forever digitally enshrined on the internet."

A brilliant young engineer, Tipple has invented a groundbreaking new device. A pair of glasses with the power to block a person's face from registering on the sensor of any camera in the world. He is offering something his generation has never known.

Privacy.

The success of his product will not only change his life, it will change the world.

This 7,400 word short story follows in the vein of Mary Shelley, Ray Bradbury, and Neal Stephenson, where new technology takes man to questionable new frontiers.

Short, interesting and beautifully written.

This was so much more than a short story.

I loved the characters and can imagine this kind of product coming to light one day.
