Description

In tomorrow's world of super-technology, a corporate colossus fights off the relentless machinations of its countless political and corporate rivals. Imagine a near-future world where one giant corporation has become so influential that no single government dare oppose it -- not even the mighty USA. A company so powerful that it can establish an independent country to serve as its unassailable headquarters. That company is Tycom, and its founder - Thomas Tye - has made it his evangelical mission to save the Earth from ecological ruin. Already the orbital installations that can manipulate this battered planet's climate are near completion -- while the military backing of an erstwhile superpower is guaranteed. But Tom Tye's seeming altruism carriers a price that the rest of the developed world is no longer prepared to pay...Emergence is the dramatic and multi-layered story of a hydra-headed fight against Tycom and its despotic master. But will our planet be a better place without him?
