True Names [book]

 True Names [book]

"YOU KNOW THAT THING WHERE IF YOU CAN FIND A WIZARD'S TRUE NAME YOU CAN CONTROL OR DESTROY IT? WHAT IF SOME HACKERS WERE MEETING UP IN A FANTASY VIDEOGAME BEHIND SCREEN NAMES, IT'D BE KINDA LIKE THAT" IS THE BASIC SUMMARY OF THIS BOOK.  WHICH LIKE, SURE, THAT'S A FINE PREMISE. WHAT MAKES THIS ABSOLUTELY WILD IS THIS WAS PUBLISHED IN 1981 AND WRITTEN IN 1979. HOLY MOLY. THAT IS SO AHEAD OF IT'S TIME. WHO WAS EVEN THINKING ABOUT SCREEN NAMES OR ONLINE FANTASY RPGS IN 1979. 

PS. I LOVE HOW MUCH THEY INSTANTLY ACCEPTED SOMETHING MIGHT BE AN ALIEN THEN WHEN THE IDEA A COMPUTER MIGHT HAVE DONE IT THEY WERE LIKE 'THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE!" THAT FEELS LIKE THE MOST 40 YEARS AGO PART.
