    Lois Clary is a software engineer at General Dexterity, a San Francisco robotics company with world-changing ambitions. She codes all day and collapses at night, her human contact limited to the two brothers who run the neighborhood hole-in-the-wall from which she orders dinner every evening. Then, disaster! Visa issues. The brothers close up shop, and fast. But they have one last delivery for Lois: their culture, the sourdough starter used to bake their bread.

    Annabel Scheme is a detective story set in an alternate San Francisco where the digital and the occult live side-by-side. It's a short listen, perfect for people who like Sherlock Holmes, Douglas Adams, ghosts and/or the Internet. In Scheme's San Francisco, an indie rocker's new tracks are climbing the charts, even though the rocker herself is long dead. A devout gamer has gone missing, and the only trace of him that remains is inside his favorite game, the blockbuster MMORPG called World of Jesus. And the richest man in the city, the inventor of the search engine called Grail, might just have made a deal with a devil.

    Als Clay Jannon seinen Job als Webdesigner verliert, meldet er sich auf eine Stellenanzeige hin bei Mr. Penumbra, der in San Francisco eine alte, verstaubte Buchhandlung betreibt, die rund um die Uhr geöffnet ist. Clay übernimmt die Nachtschicht, und bald ist ihm klar, dass hier irgendetwas nicht stimmt: Die Kunden kaufen nichts, sondern leihen die Bücher nur aus, drei Stockwerke hohe Regale beherbergen riesige Folianten, die keine Texte beinhalten, sondern nur ellenlange Reihen aus Buchstaben.
