Welles Lang's Magic Box
Randall Moore (Author)
Description"Moore has created an entrancing cautionary tale of what happens when technology outpaces society's ethical boundaries for it." - Kirkus Reviews 2/22/19All of Hollywood's top actors are dying for a role in the genius auteur, Welles Lang's latest production. Little do they know they may get their wish.Imagine a completely immersive world of entertainment where the sets and the actors exist in three dimensions, beyond virtual reality without need for any other device other than your own eyes, not only sight and sound, but aromas and tactile senses as well. Welles Lang employs technology that allows him to record and playback the performance of a living actor, but not only the performance, the performer's soul as well. He is driven mad by the side effect that makes him feel as though he is a God: death and control. Unsatisfied by the actors he's absorbed into his machine he continues to kill and control, over and over. He can only be stopped by a corrupted Avatar that exists in both the corporeal and digital worlds.

About the Author
I live in Saugus, California with my wife, Barbara who has functioned as my first reader for most of my works. A rabid reader and lover of history, I have peppered my tales, when appropriate, with historical references and strive to make the details as historically accurate and pertinent to the story as possible. First published in a student newspaper at Boston University, I followed up by publishing in the Citadel, a literary journal produced every year at Los Angeles City College. Following my passion for wine and history I published a weekly column in the Newhall Signal, a daily paper in my hometown of Santa Clarita, California, for two years. Additionally I published in The Underground Wine Journal and was a contributing editor for four years. I returned to fiction in 2013 and have just completed the first draft of my fifteenth novel. Among my favorite writers are Daniel Silva, Michael Connelly, C.J. Box, Robert Crais, Victor Gischler, Duane Swierzynsky, Elmore Leonard, Raymond Chandler and Edgar Rice Burroughs.
