The Book

The book, Bugs & Bytes, In Bigger Prints, is an extension of the Bugs & Bytes newsletters. It explains the newsletters.  The newsletters are in the book. They explain the book. And what happened in between.

If you are confused by now, then you have reached the right place. Welcome to the world of chickens and eggs. And more. Click the links in this page to read the book.

 The waves are coming!

Bugs & Bytes Book Cover

Some readers wrote me about the missing pages. One of them said that it is like holding on to an empty eggshell (and only half of it, to wit). In other words, bitin, hanging in the air. I have a special place in my heart for readers who are writers too. So for their sake, here's a bonus: this site now contains all the chapters of Prologue, Epilogue, Iklog (O Manok?), the first section of the book. It is a complete story in itself, an adventure you'd think cannot happen.  But did happen. Something to warm your heart under the Arabian sun, to quench your thirst in the Mindanao rainforests, to massage your mind in cyberspace.

The waves are coming!

The book, 8.5" x 11" in size, consists of three sections in 109 pages. The first section is a long prologue or a long epilogue, depending on what you make of it.

The second section contains the Bugs & Bytes newsletters which first appeared in 1992 on half-A4 sized pages. The early readers of the newsletters complained about the small prints. They wrote me letters which brought tears to my eyes. Their letters were written in smaller prints. This book thus is borne out of compunction for the past inconveniences of my readers. Thus the title: Bugs & Bytes, In Bigger Prints !

The third section is a modest offering to the approaching new millennium, at a time when people are made to reflect on a lot of things and, "with more enormity, write stuff like a poem or a resolution or a testament". This book, written in the first quarter of 1999, is my testament of the times that were and that will be..

Read with caution and come out of the experience a better creature, evolving much like that first amphibian which tried to leave the cold seabed for the warmth of the sunny beach, and was almost ran over by an armored car..
