The blind giant : being human in a digital world by Nick Harkaway( Book )
8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 190 libraries worldwide
Nick Harkaway, author of Angelmaker, presents a rousing and energizing look at how we can meaningfully and constructively engage with technology'creating an essential handbook for anyone trying to be human in a digital age. Some say our devices will lead us to ruin: isolating us from our neighbors, warping communication, delivering an unregulated flood of information that will destroy our humanity. Some say they will be our salvation: enabling global communication and social engagement, putting all the world's facts at our fingertips, and erasing the barriers that divide us, bringing out the best qualities of humanity. In The Blind Giant, novelist and blogger Nick Harkaway takes us on a lucid, insightful and personal tour of how we live our lives in our technology-obsessed culture. A self-described "missing link" between the pre-Internet generation and the "digital natives" who have grown up with technology, Nick is an enthusiastic guide to digital culture who weaves together examples from literature, psychology, neurology, sociology, history, and his own life while exploring the hazards and joys of the human-machine relationship. In the final analysis, whether we meaningfully engage with the machines we have created, or risk living in a world which is designed to serve computers and corporations rather than people, this book is a must-read for anyone concerned with our digital future

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 79 libraries worldwide
There couldn't be a fire along the Jorgmund Pipe. It was the last thing the world needed. But there it was, burning bright on national television. The Pipe was what kept the Livable Zone safe from the bandits, monsters and nightmares the Go Away War had left in its wake. The fire was a very big problem. Enter Gonzo Lubitsch and his friends, the Haulage & HazMat Emergency Civil Freebooting Company, a team of master troubleshooters who roll into action when things get particularly hot. They helped build the Pipe. Now they have to preserve it -- and save humanity yet again. But this job is not all it seems. It will touch more closely on Gonzo's life, and that of his best friend, than either of them can imagine. And it will decide the fate of the Gone-Away World
Tigerman by Nick Harkaway( Sound Recording )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 63 libraries worldwide
Lester Ferris, sergeant of the British Army, is a good man in need of a rest. He's spent a lot of his life being shot at, and Afghanistan was the last stop on his road to exhaustion. He has no family, he's nearly 40 and burned out and about to be retired. The island of Mancreu is the ideal place for Lester to serve out his time. It's a former British colony in legal limbo, soon to be destroyed because of its very special version of toxic pollution - a down-at-heel, mildly larcenous backwater. Of course, that also makes Mancreu perfect for shady business, hence the Black Fleet of illicit ships lurking in the bay: listening stations, offshore hospitals, money laundering operations, drug factories and deniable torture centres. None of which should be a problem, because Lester's brief is to sit tight and turn a blind eye

Ein rasanter Genremix aus Spionageroman, Abenteuergeschichte und Gangsterkomödie, wie er nur aus England kommen kann. Joe Spork, meisterhafter Uhrmacher und Sohn der Londoner Gangsterlegende Mathew 'Tommy Gun' Spork, führt ein ruhiges Leben weit weg vom kriminellen Erbe seines Vaters. Edie Banister, neunzigjährige Spezialagentin im Ruhestand, führt ebenfalls ein ruhiges Leben und verabscheut jede Sekunde davon. Doch dann setzt Joe eine Weltuntergangsmaschine in Gang, und ihre Wege kreuzen sich. Plötzlich müssen sie sich gegen zwielichtige Regierungsvertreter, wenig fromme Mönche und einen diabolischen asiatischen Diktator verbünden. Schon bald wird klar: Um die drohende Katastrophe abzuwenden, muss Edie eine alte Rechnung begleichen. Und Joe sich seiner Vergangenheit stellen...
