Mother Wode is a novel set in the near future. The year is not explicitly stated, but the time period has many elements similar to the first decade of the twenty-first century, intermixed with an extrapolated future.
Computers are much faster than today's computers, but computer scientists and computer programmers behave about the same. Also very similar to their present day counterparts are the corporate and academic cultures in which these people work.
The human condition has not changed much through the years. Love, and the desire for a secure lifestyle, are still prime motivators. There may be people routinely working on the moon, but there are still bad guys back on Earth, and everyone would like more money.
A corporate computer scientist, a computer science graduate student and a computer hacker stumble upon evidence of a conspiracy to control worldwide financial transactions. Their curiosity fuels their attempt to discover the source and purpose of this conspiracy.
