SNOQUALMIE, Wash. (PRWEB) January 06, 2015
Author Luke Marusiak returns to the world of fiction with his novel “GOLD & GLORY” (published by Xlibris), the latest installment of the Good Fight Series revealing immense struggles and competition among technical industry companies during the later part of the 20th century.
Five from Pennsylvania, a diverse group themselves, join one of the most eclectic and talented group ever assembled that includes ex–U.S. Military fresh from victories in both the Cold War and Desert Storm; young PhDs from the U.S., Asia, India, Europe, and Israel, the recent surge of technical women in the workforce; and AT&T Bell Labs expatriates in the 1990s Silicon Valley, California. This team and their company do what pundits long believed impossible—beat the Japanese in computer chip semiconductor equipment manufacturing. Defying both the government-subsidized consortium and the presumed inexorable American technical decline, the group takes on all comers in a risky and audacious strategy to dominate an industry long given up as lost. The passionate clashes, heartbreaking losses and stunning achievements highlight the lives, hopes and dreams in one of the great untold stories of the 1990s.
"I endeavor to write this historical fiction as a great untold tale but also, since it’s far enough in the past but not too far," says Marusiak, "I write it to inspire those in different places and times - to remember the lessons and recreate the magic so that others can taste greatness for themselves."
