Notes: Currently, this Google Document is "flagged as inappropriate." I assume it's a false positive in some automated scanning utility. I have challenged this flag, and am currently awaiting it to be overturned. If too long a time has passed without resolution, I shall post the work elsewhere.
In the meantime, if you would like to read the novel, please contact me, and I shall send you a PDF copy of it.
Update: Google silently rescinded this flag. Enjoy reading it. :)

I live in the Cleveland area, work in the software industry and write on the side. I used to work in the space industry in Houston. I write under the name Jacob P. Silvia; so, if you've read something by him, it's probably written by me. I do catalog all my published work on my writing blog, so if it doesn't appear there, I probably didn't write it (though you can contact me to be sure, as I know I probably missed something).
I also like to read and review books. So if you have a book that you'd like me to review on Amazon.com, LibraryThing, and quite possibly my blog, please contact me. At this time, I do not review eBooks, and will only post Amazon.com reviews to items that are on Amazon.com (for obvious reasons). I tend to be very honest with my reviews.
Please visit my web page or active blog for more information about me. Any pages not linked from this site or a defunct site listed here are most likely not related to me. If there's a question though, please feel free to contact me and ask.
