Hot Sweltering Summer Sex Vignettes
Author and semi-regular Chronicle contributor Spike Gillespie (All the Wrong Men and One Perfect Boy) has been working on a new novel called thebelljar.net, about the high-tech nightmare that Austin has become. In it, our heroine, Alice, takes on a job as "the world's oldest high tech intern" to escape her former career in food service. At her new company, The Universe, she is in charge of making coffee and copies and building an in-house Web site to act as a style guide for her higher-ups. Her self-appointed position is to keep high the morale of one of the programmers (aka moles) whom she decides is fuckable (she's naive).
