Featuring: INFINITE EXPOSURE by Roland Hughes

On the road to a bleaker future, is there still a chance to get it right?

This work of fiction uses historical information and relevant news stories to draw a line from post 9/11 through the off-shoring of IT jobs and the largest terrorist strike the free world has ever known to the resulting nuclear war.

By the year 2012 the U.S. will no longer be a world power.  The world will have seen many countries deploy nuclear weapons.  Anarchy will reign in many parts of the world and electricity will be considered a luxury nearly everywhere.

That, however, is not the interesting part of the story.  How we got there is a far more interesting tale indeed.  Follow the story from post 9/11 to where it all went bad and see if you can find a way out, not just for yourself, but for everyone.

Read Infinite Exposure, Roland Hughes’ new work of fiction: a stark portrayal of a world gone wrong.

Review For “Infinite Exposure’:

Roland Hughes’s Preface in his book “Infinite Exposure” begins with “This book is a work of fiction. It uses many historical events, news articles, and company names to build a time line necessary for projection forward. Without using many of these actual names and quotes, it would be difficult to build the sense of realism that gives credibility to the outcome. There is no slander or malice intended. Indeed this book is intended to be a wakeup call for both an industry and a country.” (p.7) Reading through the book, I found Hughes’s writing to indeed be very close to reality. The occurrences in the book mimic existing situations in the world and the resulting consequences are not desirable by any means.

The basic premise of Hughes’s book is how developing data centers and sending IT jobs overseas is detrimental to the future of the world. The result of this cost-cutting measure is the biggest al-Qaeda attack in history, and nuclear war. As anyone who has ever called for technical support on a computer or other product knows, overseas centers are a current and prevalent fact of life. I could go on for pages and pages about what I think about overseas support centers but this is not the place for that. However, Hughes’s fictional account of what the resulting effects of this money-saving action could be is a frighteningly realistic possibility.

On the title page it is stated that, “The book is meant to be a warning of what very well may happen if policies, laws, and business directions are not changed quickly.” I think that this book would be a relevant read to anyone who has ever pondered what the effects of sending jobs offshore may be and to those that have fears about the future of the world.

Hughes does a great job of presenting a detailed account of just how everything may unfortunately play out. The writing is interesting and will definitely get the reader’s attention and open their eyes to changes that need to be made. For those that are up-todate on current events, the scenarios presented in the book will hit all too close to home.

Hopefully the events that occur in the fictional “Infinite Exposure” will not become a reality in the not-too-distant future.
