Ringlands: A Kaplan Short Story by Korban Blake
After the suspicious deaths of his online friends, George Kaplan, an Internet activist, suspects his own life is also in danger and has no choice but to go on the run. Can he survive the seemingly relentless pursuit of the man he knows as ‘Glasses’, a tireless hunter with a murder mission and advanced technology at his disposal?
RINGLANDS is approximately 48 pages (approx. 12,000 words) in length and is the first of the Kaplan short stories, set in modern Britain.
RINGLANDS is dedicated to the memory and work of Aaron H. Swartz, November 8, 1986 – January 11, 2013. Champion of citizen-driven political change.
Praise for Ringlands:
“Gripped, from start to finish. There is a strong message here – world, take notice and act NOW, before it’s too late!” – Abigail Hart
