Artemis Pound has just graduated from college and taken an internship at Boom! Snap! Pow! Marketing in the new tech center of the East Coast: Lepton Mountain. But something’s not right. Someone’s trying to use the power of quantum computing to launch mind-infecting marketing software upon the world. Artemis discovers that navigating the corporate world requires a lot more than technical skills, that office romances are complicated, and that you never know who you can trust. After the discovery of a mysterious book hidden in an elaborate quantum world, Artemis and his friends team up with a shadowy organization and embark on a dangerous plan to save the world. The Coding Samurai: The Way of the Computer Warrior is an imaginative ride through a near-future world that reminds us that the more technologically advanced we become, the harder we have to work to retain our humanity.
