A modern/literary/historical fictional account of the Tech Boom in the Silicon Valley and Wall Street, as witnessed first-person through several memorable and colorful characters. Set in the San Francisco Bay Area and global financial capitals.

Do you want to know what really happened in the tech bubble? How the real-estate boom started? How the world really operates? Can you handle the unvarnished, completely politically-incorrect truth? Don’t assume anything: come out on a TERRACE for a view you never imagined . . .

It’s the end of one century and the beginning of a new.  Technological development has become a firestorm, both driving and driven by an economic boom such as the world has never seen.  At the core of the inferno, are the people whose lives are inextricably linked to the Silicon Valley and the city of San Francisco.  People from the angry Asian-Hispanic beauty Angelina Sumana Ruiz, to the proud, WASP, mega-lawyer Preston Elliott Hughes, Jr.; from the struggling single mother SandyMae Miller, to the egotistical New Economy, CEO John Dorman; from Rasheyd, the Saudi Arabian businessman, to the generation Y, internet porn king Marcus Caughman; from the lowly Mexican cleaning woman, Maria, to the giant of the global construction industry and last leader of a powerful family dynasty, Samuel McAndrews; and more  . . . they frantically fan the flames and attempt to extract what they can from the ensuing whirlwind.  Gangbangers, environmentalists, clerics, accountants, activists, bureaucrats, socialites, lobbyists, and others join them all in a swirling, chaotic, fin de siècle, ka boom!  When the dust settles, the result is there for any eye who wishes to behold.  Together they have built the next layer of mankind’s progress: A TERRACE ON THE TOWER OF BABEL.

Set in the San Francisco Bay Area, with related scenes in New York, London, Washington D.C., Riyadh, and Ibiza, A TERRACE ON THE TOWER OF BABEL is a fast-moving, fascinating and boldly rollicking tale of epic proportions full of romance, intrigue, philosophy, history, science, humor, thrills, triumph and defeat. It is stark in its reality – frightening at times, comforting at others, rife with controversy yet mortared with sympathetic accord. Delve deep into its provocative and compelling depths or float along at the surface and enjoy it in either case – this is a story you’ll never forget!

Babylon Stripped Naked
Feb. 21, 2010, Kathryn McAuley, Seattle, WA, USA

Stunning!...Addictive!...Disturbing!...Even frightening!...This seminal masterpiece of fictionalized reality from a high level Silicon Valley insider places you squarely in the middle of the machinations of Wall Street and the tech world at its zenith. From light notes and shades of hopefulness to the fiery and super spicy, this is a ten-course meal guaranteed to leave you sated long after your last bite!

How could this happen? We're traveling the Information Super-Highway to "One Techno-World Without End"? Bright young minds - inventing dark things - leading to more dark things: organized terrorism, slaving, cyber and sexual warfare. What other geniuses at manipulation for greed's sake will shift the paradigm by which we all must live? Or die! What other players are about to shift it again? Read Caldwell's A Terrace on the Tower of Babel, then plead for its sequel.
