From Techie to Fiction Writer

It seems that uber-techie Mark Russinovich has turned to fiction writing.

His name is usually associated with the Sysinternals suite of tools and his infrequent blog posts are always worth a read because of the incredible detail they contain. But, will either of those talents translate to the pages of a book?

Mark cites Tom Clancy and Michael Crichton as authors whose style he feels is close to his own. Expect then a high level of detail in the narrative. (If I ever took up fiction writing, I would probably end up exhibiting a similar style.)

I look forward to having a read although I hope that it doesn't date too quickly.
