Days To Go - a novel of exotica, cough syrup, and the dotcom meltdown
Downtown Seattle. 2001.
The time is early February of 2001. The Twin Towers are still standing. All of the original members of the Ramones are still alive. [The author suddenly just made herself real depressed.] Dotcom employees don't burst out laughing when you mention stock options...yet.
And office space vacancies are about the hit an all-time high.
