About Karen T. Smith

I am a card-carrying technology geek, having cut my teeth on BASIC on my family’s Apple II Plus computer. As a young woman with a passion for reading that equaled my interest in technology, I found science fiction titles were written with the male reader in mind. I didn’t want more space battles and buxom aliens, I wanted to know how technology would change our lives.

So I write the stories I wanted to read as a young teen.

Review by: Kimberly Schimmel on Nov. 08, 2013 :
I really enjoyed this short story. As a librarian who lived in Chicago over twenty years ago, I appreciated the setting, too. The premise was compelling: what if disease wiped out doctors, law & order, and most of the population. Could we survive if we still had access to information?

I hope this is the beginning of a new genre: heroic librarian fiction!
