Overview

In Reports on the Internet Apocalypse, the third and final installment of the Internet Apocalypse Trilogy, Gladstone, the would-be Internet Messiah, finds himself in exile from America, falsely accused of terrorism and murder. Meanwhile, a government Special Agent is hot on his trail and has joined forces with a first-time Hollywood producer bent on optioning Gladstone s story for film.

When the World Wide Web returns in a highly compromised and commercialized state, possibly due to the efforts of a billionaire presidential candidate, Gladstone and his pursuers must collaborate in an attempt to reclaim a free and open Internet.

Reports on the Internet Apocalypse brings to an end the dystopian trilogy that imagines a world forced to face itself in real life.

In the final book of his Internet Apocalypse near-future trilogy, Gladstone brings his determinedly postmodern narrative to a satisfying conclusion. Special Agent Aaron N. Rowsdowner undertakes a quixotic investigation to end the Internet Apocalypse. Key to his success is locating the Internet Messiah Gladstone, who is the icon of protest and civil unrest. Though the story is framed as a gumshoe novel, it's all style and no mystery. The pace is pushed to the limit, as if to avoid the dread realm of "too long; didn't read." Both heroes and villains are clearly labeled, with no ambiguity. Gladstone (the author) tosses in sketches 4chan, Donald Trump, and other manifestations of the Internet. There is no tension, plot development, or character evolution to speak of, but that seems to be a deliberate stylistic choice. This is a sightseeing tour of online culture, business, and government,, the true meaning of which remains delightfully unclear. (Nov.)
