Y2K: The Millennium Bug is about fallible, human peoplenot about superheroes. Some are valiant and some are vile, but they all have to deal with their own problems in order to survive the chaos caused by the infamous year 2000 computer problem known as: The Millennium Bug!
Y2K: The Millennium Bug tracks the onset of the year 2000 and the results of the computer shut-downs, as seen by a number of characters with differing perspectives, education levels, and preparedness for disasters. Some people in America are more well prepared than others, and some take advantage of the collapse of law and order in order to pursue their own wicked impulses. Countries overseas have had their own Y2K problems, including Russia, where a series of cascading failures cause an accidental launch of a small number of nuclear missiles.
And then the situation starts getting really difficult!
This is not an end of the world story, but a chronicle of events surrounding a small set of people who end up brought together by the unraveling of societytriggered by wide-spread failures of critical computer systems at the beginning of the year 2000 (Y2K). Since there really is a Y2K problem with many computers, and the actual Y2K deadline is fast approaching, many references to real news stories, articles, books, and actual Y2K-related events have been incorporated into the story. Y2K depicts neither the best nor the worst case scenarioreaders are encouraged to educate themselves about the actual likelihood of problems in their lives if computers they depend on cannot handle dates in the year 2000.
